Ice fishing is a fun and exciting method of fishing that is one of a kind. It is very unique and even has its own entire kind of gear, so make room on your shelf! Once you fall in love with it you will need the extra
space. One of the most important factors is safety, making sure the ice is thick enough, making sure you stay warm, and be sure not to get lost or stranded in the snow. There are two main methods,jigging with a short ice fishing rod, or just using bait in
place. There is also something called a tip-up which is basically just a spool attached to some bait and a flag which lets you know when the fish is on then you pull it up. Since the new rules in BC i dont recommend using a tip-up since you can only legally
use one line per person. There are all sorts of fish you can catch through the ice but the main species in the southern half of BC are Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, Kokanee, and Lake Trout. Further up north you can target other species such as Northern Pike
or Artic Grayling and on some lakes even find Bass, or Walleye. But always do a little research on the lake your going to before you head out.
