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?

I f you are doing smelts, shrimp or squid for bait. If you are doing trout, Shrimp or power bait. I am not new to ice fishing ,but getting back into it after being away from it for awhile. Read up on the regs before you go. Hope this helps a little.
