1. Procure the equipment. In order to equip for ice fishing the you are going to have to get the absolute essentials. The basics are a few yards of line, 10 lb test will be enough. Get some hooks and some bait for those hooks.
2. Procure a cutting tool to cut the ice. You are also going to need something to cut a hole in the ice. You can either something as simple as a pointed stick or as complex as a gas powered auger.
3. Make sure to wear warm clothing. Since this can only be done in cold temperature you are going to need to bring lots of warm clothes. You may also want to bring an extra change of clothes just in case you fall through the ice and need to warm up.
- Be sure to check the ice thickness before you head out onto the ice. Safety is key and always let some one know where you are going just in case some thing happens.
