Do you have the ice fishing supplies you need?
The fishing doesn't stop when the temperatures drop, but you don't want to be sorry when you're out on the ice and you realize you forgot, or even neglected to get, some specific things.
Ice fishing keeps the season going, but there's clearly some items that are specialized and near-necessary for you to enjoy yourself and stay safe.
Here's a great reminder list from Sportsman's Guide that will cover yourself when you hit the lake or river.
