Fishing is fun. For me, finally the outdoor show season is over and now I have time to be walking on hard water.
Some people wonder though, why ice fish? Well the reasons are unlimited. It's fun. It's good to get into the outdoors and fish during that time when the lakes are frozen.
Ice fishing is a different kind of challenge. Getting out with friends and family are probably the most common reasons why people enjoy ice fishing. You don't need a boat nor do you need a lot of expensive equipment. You can get some exercise drilling ice holes, or you can go the easy route using a power auger. I love the fact that you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn. Crappies bite best in the late afternoon. Lures and bait are less costly. You don't have to navigate big water. And the list goes on and on.
