I got an ice fishing kit for my lowrance depth finder that I use in my boat. Nice to have a flasher.

Bought the striker fishing jacket! I may not have a fish finder yet but at least while I hunt them down I can stay warmer now! Someday I'll get a wheeler and be able to get out further and faster on ice

Where to start?

For the last 10 years I've been sitting on plastic buckets in a 4 man ice cube tent with a 3000btu propane heater that was difficult to light, fishing blind in 6" holes drilled by hand (or with a cordless drill if I had one that worked at the time), and once a year we'd set up the wall tent and spend a weekend on the ice which always turned into a complete gong show.

This year I went all out and built a hard sided shack complete with a wood stove, 12v battery/solar panel, murphy bed and folding table - my wife and I have spent 5 weekends out there so far this year. We also upgraded to a 10" eskimo P1 auger and bought some electronics - a Garmin Striker 5 to use as a flasher (and to upgrade the finder in the boat) and an underwater camera, so now I know that there are fish down there even if they're not biting.

I should have done this years ago...
