Not a sleeper hut just a heavy one and a bunch of gear with snow drifts almost waist deep that formed during the day,
To top of a exhausting hike we all had $100 dollar parking tickets on our cars.

Will you be bringing your own rods and stuff or looking to borrow? I run 4lbs test on all my rods and only up it to 6lbs for bigger Lakers and fish. For perch, some small Jigging spoons, Small Jiggin Raps, And some smaller jigheads. A hook and sinker tipped with minnow,wax worm etc will also work just fine. With perch MOST of the time experimenting with any of those will produce fish.

2 rods (its legal to use 2 rods while ice fishing)

Terminal tackle

Perch lures and jigs

Bait (Minnows, Wax worms) I have one extra minnow bucket. If some guys wanna split the cost of minnows and use the same bucket be my guest.

Auger (Optional) I'll lend mine out.

Ice Scoop (Optional) I'll lend mine out.

Its pretty simple fishing, some guys will use a sonar, but I personally dont have one and use Trial and Error to find my fish.

Thanks CA , I will be bringing my own rod I just don't want to bring a bunch of crap I wont end up using.. im gonna do some shopping soon and needed a good list and this will do just fine!

 

only thing ill need to borrow is an auger and I don't mind sharing a bucket with someone and going in on some minnows, if the lures aint doing it
