Welcome aboard, itís an interesting forum for sure lol. Ice fishing is a ton of fun, especially if you jig instead if only setting traps lol.

Oh, might want to set your location in your profile so you can get more local help too.

No offense ment  :P I started with traps too and still use set lines.  I just realized really quick that I hate hand lineing the fish (without a rod, as I love fly fishing), so switched to ice riggers to set jig rods when I feel the need to. Just have to keep the ice clear in the hole with the rod setups though.
