Please be safe. I will always make sure before I go on any ice. And seeing this is a quick way to take young ones out fishing I always wait well into ice season before taking my daughters

Step 1: Find Water

Should be easy

Step 2: Clean Ice

Step 3: Bait Hook

Almost anything will work

Step 4: Secret Weapon

Really not a secret but definitely a sur thing. In fact the only reason for using the baits from the previous step is just to get the meal worms to the fish faster! Simply thread one on a hook and plop in hole. Find bottom and reel about 12 inches of line and hold on. All my daughters have caught fish this way. Every age from 5 to 16 and only a few Ewwwwwwwwws

Step 5: Good Luck

Happy Fishing.....Just a reminder. I live in Massachusetts but im sure it would work all over

Step 6:

I also live in the New England states, our ice is so thick ppl drive cars on it,(most sink but they try it) I caught a bass who got stuck in our hole, he was huge we were so stubborn trying to get him out (he slipped away) :-( I really wanted to hang the fish over my fireplace if that happens again do u have any suggestions?
check out my other ice fishing ible...should help you if not ask away. Thanks
The scoop or the auger
<p>The third picture.</p>
after your done with the auger there are ice shavings and you just have to scoop them out of the hole. So you use the ladel
Cool! Thanks!
<p>Very cool (and tasty) family activity! Can you tell me more about that tool that you used to clean the ice? How does it work?</p>
Which tool?
