If you are into ice fishing then you may need to go to Upper Michigan, Alaska or Canada. When you are going ice fishing you will need to be sure to bring the right tools with you so that you don't have to make a second trip back on the ice.
There are many types of fish that you can catch but there are only a few that stay in cold waters like ice fishing wise. If you don't live in an icy area of the world then don't expect to catch any ice fish. You will need to travel to catch what you seek.
As normal fishing goes, the fish will tend to bite better in the morning because they come to the surface looking for food. So as the day goes on you will catch less fish because they have already eaten for the day and return down to deeper waters. Even though this is a good sport to venture out to it can be a very dangerous one as well. You can get a bad cold out on the ice or even fall through the ice when you car trying to make your hole to go fishing.
You will want to stay away from any substance that will delay your reaction time seeing is that can cause an accident as well. You will also want to wear boots and something warm out on the ice seeing that it is probably below zero where you are fishing at.
A lot of people will take their cars and trucks onto the ice, that is ok when the ice is the thick so you may want to check how thick the ice is before you go driving out onto the ice. You might have to log all stuff onto the ice one day and the next day comes and you can drive on it. There will be all kinds of differences when ice fishing. All you do when you get to your spot is check the ice first sees if it's thick enough to at least walk on and it is go fishing, you will also want to check if it is thick enough to drive on so you don't have to tote all your gear.
If you can drive on the ice to your spot it will make your day and fishing trip a lot easier and a lot better for you and whoever you bring with you. You don't ever want to go alone that is like a cardinal rule and should also pop into your head as common sense. So always bring someone with you when you go ice fishing whether it be a friend or son or even a wife or girlfriend just always have someone with you.
