Title: New to ice fishing and iceshanty
Post by: jon777 on Mar 02, 2018, 09:32 PM
Moved to Montana last year and didn't walk out on the ice until last night to try ice fishing with a friend. I've been missing out! The good thing about getting into it at the end of the season is I was able to get stuff on sale. I made a couple of rookie mistakes and the fish got loose at the base of the hole. We fished Black sandy beach at hauser lake, helena MT. Can't wait to do it again.

Congrats Jon.    You're hooked and off to a good start.  Do stay safe as the warmer weather arrives in the distant future.     ;)2

Good luck.

Welcome. Caution ice fishing should be taken in moderation. It's addictive.

Welcome, this is the best ice fishing site for any lake in the US and Canada.  Most guys will be signing off shortly and going to MFF (My Fish Finder) the soft water fishing site.  Maybe we'll see you there.

 ??? Haven't noticed that at all.....The past few years I've found this forum to be extremely active during the off season because MFF is like the Dead Sea !!

No need to let these guys scare you off, some of us still have a month or more yet of ice. I was on 25 yesterday with 5 of snow on top of that.
