Ice Fishing Gear & Equipment for Winter Adventure
Be prepared for your next ice fishing excursion. Whether you're on the lake dead sticking or finesse jigging, the right ice fishing gear makes the difference. Pack up with equipment designed for hassle-free use and maximum durability to withstand the elements.
Shop for a variety of ice fishing rods, reels and ice fishing combos. Drill in with ice fishing augers and shield yourself from the cold with ice fishing shelters. Make the most of your trip with ice fishing accessories, like waterproof boxes, fishing flashers, underwater cameras, heaters and more.
Outfit yourself for anything with thermal ice fishing outwear and clothing. Get the quality you need from the top brands in the sport, like Clam Outdoors®, Shakespeare®, St. Croix®, Jiffy® and Strikemaster®.
Warm up on the frozen pond with outerwear designed for ice fishing anglers. Look for ice fishing clothing that is both windproof and waterproof yet breathable. Details like plush fleece lining adds soft warmth while pockets and zippered compartments let you easily stash away tools and small essentials.
Haul your gear with ease with an ice sled. Pack ice fishing tip-ups designed for lightweight durability, for easy set-up and complete visibility when you have a bite.
Find ice fishing shelters designed to house one or multiple people. Look for a sturdy, durable construction that is mildew and fade-resistant. Select an ice shelter that rolls up into a carry bag for simple transport. Choose a shelter with accessible areas to fish in comfort.
Shop hand or power ice augers and drills that come in either manual or gasoline, propane or battery-powered. Manual drills come in lighter weights and more compact designs – ideal for packing up and traveling, while powered drills deliver speed for boring into ice quickly.
Anglers using artificial bait should choose a rod with fast action. The tips of these rods are sensitive to even the lightest bites, while the rest of the blank remains rigid for strength while fighting fish. Medium-action rods are ideal for finesse jigging or dead sticking. These rods flex in the middle and absorb shock from aggressive movements.
Blanks are typically composed of graphite, fiberglass or composites. Graphite blanks are lightweight and sensitive, while fiberglass is more durable in freezing temperatures. If you want a more pronounced feel on hits, choose a graphite blank. If you're using a bobber as a hit indicator, opt for fiberglass.
