Ice Fishing BS Thread

The only other ice fishing thread I could find has been dead for a few years. Surely more people enjoy getting out on the ice

I have alwaya went out with my dad once or twice a year. Never loved it but never really had the means of doing it myself either. Well I bought a sled and pole. My dad is gifting an auger he bought and never uses. That pretty much is everything I need outside of some tackle.

I'm learning to love it! Now that I know I can pitch my tent as a ice shelter I am pretty stoked. I gotta say I am pretty stoked to learn all the tricks and hopefully I can land a monster sometime soon.

My dad and I are going to a local lake up in the mountains tomorrow. I'm going to try my luck at hooking the wood stove in the tent this time.

Yeah that's cool! To me what's really awesome, is if you're fishing on a really clear lake, it's like looking down into an aquarium, especially if your shelter has dark sides.

If I ever make it up to Wyoming I'd be down to do some ice fishin.
That sounds like a sweet trip with your dad. And that would be nice to set up your stove in there, you'd be toasty.

Some nice catches! Looks like you have a nice little shack?

I haven't got to see down through clear ice yet but I have seen videos with it. Someone recently showed me one where a couple guys caught a massive lake trout and you could see them reel it in and pull it through the hole.

Those weren't my shacks, but they were nice. One was built into a plastic sled and the bottom folded up where ever you wanted to make a hole, which was cool. Plus good for breaking the wind. Fire up a little heater in them bad boys and you're set. But man, I hope you can find some clear water to fish out of, it's so awesome. That one pic where it's real clear, was about 10-12 feet and you could see perfect to the bottom.

Glad to see more guys in here . Caught lots of small trout today. We kept 3 but nothing worth pictures, just a tasty dinner. It was warm enough for me so I didn't bother setting up the shelter or stove. That will probably be my last trip until I head back to my place in a week or so.

Guerilla, just let me know when you are headed this way. I did a week long fly fishing trip with infra last summer. I love having an excuse to go fishing haha.

Close! That's a seek outside 4 man tipi. Pretty much the same thing though. I picked it up used shortly after I sold me RTT. Been loving it ever since!
