Ice Fishing Shelters – Whether you call them ice fishing shelters, shanties, houses or huts; they can make all the difference on an ice fishing trip.  On a cold, windy day, it is going to be a lot tougher to concentrate on the fish.  Inside an ice fishing shelter, it’s as comfortable as it’s going to get on the ice.  You will be able to concentrate on the fishing, get more hookups, catch more fish and have more fun.

Ice Fishing Augers – Ice fishing starts with the auger.  Without the auger, you would not have a hole to fish in.  There are a variety of augers on the market.  Regular augers and power augers are both popular and very effective for cutting the holes.

Ice Fishing Tip-Ups – Ice Fishing Tip-ups help ice fishermen cover a lot of water.  You can set up a bunch of tip-ups in different holes throughout the area and when you see a flag go up, you know you have a fish on.  Most ice fisherman will jig one rod in a hole, but they will have tipups set up in other holes around the area.  Once that flag goes up, the excitement begins as you sprint over to the tipup, set the hook and bring up the fish.

ice-fishing-jigsIce fishing jigs are smaller and lighter than most of the jigs that are used during the open water season.  That doesn’t mean that ice fishing jigs aren’t productive during the open water season, it’s just that fish tend to be more catchable through the ice by downsizing your baits.  There are a variety of ice fishing jigs that can be fished with or without live bait.  Panfish such as perch, crappie, and bluegill can be caught on an ice fishing jig tipped with a spike, waxworm, small minnow or just a piece of the minnow’s head.
