As I’ve shared in a previous post, I don’t fish. However, in the spirit of remaining open-minded, I’d like to once again ramble a bit about fishing – or to be more exact, Ice Fishing.

Here’s what I know:

  1. First, you need to make sure the ice is thick enough to support you (at least 4″ thick if it’s just you, 12″ thick for your ice shanty or snowmobile)
  2. Then, you start dressing in layers – LOTS of layers!
  3. Next, add warm, waterproof footwear (you’ll be standing on ICE, remember!)
  4. Finally, you’ll need something to cut through the ice & fishing equipment

That’s all I know.

However, there are experts across the web who speak fluent ice fishing, including those at the Wisconsin DNR. There’s also WisconsinSportsmanMag.com with a full line-up of articles including Secrets of the Pros and the National Ice Fishing Association‘s web site.
Had to share this as well, ‘cuz it made me laugh!

Hancock Lions Club Fisheree, Fish Lake
5th Annual Justin Donner Memorial Fisheree, Mercer
