You don’t need a ton of gear, but there are some ice fishing basics to get you going.

Have a look at these tips and get started with these ice fishing basics from the Missouri Conservation Department.

If you haven’t done it yet, this is the season to give ice fishing a try. While it is nice to have a snowmobile, you can still access some excellent spots via snow shoeing or a quick walk onto some of your local lakes.

The one piece of gear I would consider investing in right-off-the-bat is a gas powered ice drill. When ice fishing, in many cases, you will be drilling up to 12 holes a day on a lake to get on the fish. Being able to do this under power will maximize your time and make it a more enjoyable outing.

Don’t want to buy one outright? Look at renting or borrowing one to get out and give it a try.

Try out this winter sport this season as it is a great way to keep outdoors with friends and family.
