What Ice Fishing Gear Should I Buy?

Oldschooljeep48 asked:

I just started ice fishing this year. I have a gift card to Cableas and was wondering if I should buy an ice fishing rod and reel, or a tip up. I currently am using a 5 1/2 foot ultralight I use in the summer. Also I do not have, or can forsee, an ice shanty in my future.

    go with the ice rod and reel. That way you are at least activly fishing. If you only had a tip up it could get boring quickly. Start with the rod and reel and then add a tip up when you save up some cash.

    Go with the rod and reel. Get some small jigs and jig for some panfish in shallow water. Also get an slush scooper because it sucks when you don’t have one and slush collects in your hole.

    Go with the ice rod & reel and a tip up if possible. In minnesota you can use 2 outfits. So try both at the same time. For pan fish I use wax worms or small minnows. For walleye and northern use a larger minnow.

    You’re going to need to do a little homework first. If I were you, I’d go out on the lake and just watch what other people are using and doing. Listen and learn. Anglers are very friendly and will help you get started. After your outing, you’ll have a better idea about what you’ll need to catch fish. Take a notebook and write stuff down. Then take a trip to Cabela’s. They will have everything you want and/or need.

    First make an extra deposit to your checking account. Check with a local bait shop owner and see what is working and where. Spend your money wisely, might not be a bad idea to go with a guide once for a 1/2 day. That would work for any kind of fishing.
