So I figure I'll likely go out and give ice fishing a shot this weekend. Never tried it before so what do I need? I figure I'll pick up a cheap combo at Canadian Tire, so that will cover a rod and reel, and I'll need to get an auger for the hole. Lures/bait, can someone give me some pointers here?
Also, I'll be headed to Gairloch Lake, so are there any areas to try, or just go out, drill a hole anywhere, and hope for the best? On that note, is there anywhere on the lake to avoid because of consistently bad or thin ice?
