It’s that time of year! Besides spending time in the woods deer hunting it’s time to look at your ice fishing gear. There are a lot of factors to having a successful ice fishing trip but the one that tends to get me every time is not being prepared for the cold. You don’t have to get special ice fishing clothing if you already have cold weather gear for hunting then just use that. A few years back we went up to the UP of Michigan and fished with the gang from Crystal Bait and Marine. We had an awesome trip and caught more fish than you can imagine, but it would have been a long trip if we couldn’t have stayed warm. I used my Mothwing Camo Moth Gear for cold weather and my Farguson Outdoors Ice Man Tent Chair to help cut the wind from time to time and it made a world of difference. So if you are going to venture out on to the ice this year just make sure you have the right gear to keep you warm.
