With the days getting shorter and the nights getting colder, winter is just around the corner. Just because winter is upon us, you do not need to stop fishing. In fact for many anglers, this is their favorite time of year to fish. Over the years, ice fishing has become more and more popular and with the improved equipment available today, ice fishing is enjoyed by many. Specialized equipment such as ice fishing poles and reels, improved ice augers, shelters, heaters, outdoor clothing and lures have really help this sport grow in recent years. With proper planning and preparation, ice fishing can be enjoyed by the whole family. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources recently posted a series of articles to teach you everything you need to know to have a successful ice fishing trip. If you have not gone ice fishing before, we suggest you give it a try and see what you have been missing.
