Ice fishing is great for so many reasons, and the Missouri Department of Conservation knows what you need to have a great time on the ice.
You don’t have to spend a lot, or acquire much gear to have a rewarding and fun ice fishing adventure.
Just watch this Missouri Department of Conservation video, and spice up your winter activities with ice fishing.
All you need for a stellar ice fishing tip is an ice auger to cut a hole, an ice rod, a plastic scoop, and a five-gallon bucket.
Remember when you go ice fishing to check the thickness of the ice — about three inches is a sufficient breadth. You may have to try your luck at several spots, so be prepared to move about every fifteen minutes if there are no bites.
