Ice fishing is a
very exiting sport but it also takes lots of patience’s .Some day you might
limit out and others you may not even get a bite. Ice fishing can be very different
from summer fishing. The fish in winter
act different then in the summer. There is a big verity of fish you can catch but you often time catch lots of pan fish. But
there are two sides of fishing one is fishing for pan fish and one is going for the big lurkers .ice fishing equipment
can be very cheep if u look in the right places.
When you are ice fishing there is some equipment that is
necessary and some that is optional.
The first thing u are going to need is a pole,
you can find poles pretty cheep running around $10-$30.The second thing u are
going to need is some sort of lure
some of the most popular ones are called tear drops of spiders. The third thing
you are going to need is some sort of ice line
preferably 2-6 lb test. You are also going to need an ice auger, you can find these in a verity of sizes but 6in is standard.
And the last thing you are going to need is some sort of bait most anglers prefer wax worms, spikes, or wigglers.
When you are ice fishing you are most likely going to catch
a verity of fish. Some of the fish you might catch are a blue
gill, crappie, bass, pearch, sunfish, or rock bass. All those fish I just listed are conceder pan fish. They call them pan fish
because they can fit in a pan easily.
When you are going for the big game fish thorough the ice you are going to need some equipment.
The first thing you are going to need is a tip
up. Tip ups come in a verity of styles
but the one most anglers use is the polar tip up. A tip up is a device
u lay over your hole and it has a spool with
line on it when you get a bit it triggers a flag so u can
go and get the fish. You are going to need a heavy test breaded line preferably 25- 30 test. On the end you are going to
need a wire leader and a trouble
hook. The most common bait for tip ups is a shiner minnow.
Now that you know all that u need to know to go ice fishing
you can go out and try out your
skills. But the first thing u need to check if the ice is safe be for you get on. But the key part to fishing is to stay safe
have fun and share the sport with
others. All in all you now know every thing u need to know to have a fun day out
on the ice.
