I'm going ice fishing for the first time with friends this Tuesday in Alaska. I've been trying to prepare myself as best as possible by getting the proper gear together and bracing myself for the cold.
My first stop was at a sports store where I bought all of my equipment; tackle, ice augers, chairs, hooks, rods and an ice saw to name a few. My next big purchase was a balaclava for face protection, lined bibs and a heavy jacket. I never imagined there would be so much to prepare for.
