I'm looking forward to the ice fishing season. I've never had a lot of luck in late fall from shore. Can't wait for ice so that I can access some deeper water and some different lakes and ponds. I do not own a boat.
I'd like to get a one man portable shelter...any recommendations? I already have one of the "Ice Cube" shelters that I picked up for $25 end of season clearance a few years back. That works fine for the kids and I when we locate a good spot. But I'd like to get more mobile and also have something a little smaller for when I head out by myself.
I did invest in a Marcum sonar last winter and really liked using that. It's nice to see if your fishing over some fish or just wasting your time. It's also fun seeing the fish approach your offering and bite!
Until then, keep the photos and info coming! For now, I'm just living vicariously through others.
