Ice fishing is a highly specialized sport that is not for the faint of heart. But if you’re willing to suit up and brave the elements it can be one of the most thrilling and rewarding sports out there.Before it was done for fun, ice fishing was an ancient means of survival for Northern peoples. As early as 1880 eskimos and other Northern tribes throughout Canada, Alaska and Greenland used crude methods to hunt for fish under the ice.
Early on, ice fishing was done with spears. It took great skill and patience to catch the wary fish with this method. Eskimos would often sit on a stool by an ice hole for up to 10 hours, often coming back empty handed. The ice fishermen of the past were rugged individuals. You had to be to survive. They often worked alone, bracing themselves against the elements with only the clothes on their backs. The ice fishing gear they carried was basic and the skill took years to perfect.
If you’re thinking about getting out on the ice (hint: black ice is good, white ice is bad) and catching a few slabs you’ll need the right ice fishing supplies. That way you’ll come prepared and only go where the fish are biting.
