ice fishing how-to

41 posts in this topic

First time, I would go with a group or a good friend. You probably don't need anything and have a good time.  Just dress warm from head to toe and have some kind of traction aid for your shoe like korkers, spikes, screws, etc so you don't fall on your a$$.  When you get in to it, there is all sort of expensive S*** you can buy.  Near top of that list is a flasher or fish finder.  You can sit on a hole all day with a drink in hand like bellringer or hole hopping with your flasher to find active feeding fish.

Note the reach and grab in the cooler in the background.  The cooler is just a vessel to transport the all too important beverages. 

You'll fit right in with the crowd.  Добро пожаловать товарищ . Just watch out for bareback bear hugs if temp reached upper 30s. lol

First time I ice fished.... we caught a 8 lb largemouth that would not fit through the 4” hole .... on a tip up with Dacron line and a shiner.... that bass had a 8” perch halfway down its throat and still ate that shiner. We had to let line out and chip  the hole bigger. Way before cell phones and digital cameras.... wish I still had the pictures from twin lakes.

I watched a video of a guy ice fishing, catching trout on power bait. 

 

Works for me in the spring, anybody ever try it through the ice?
