When the cold weather hits Iowa, most people are inside and staying there. But we can’t forget about those brave anglers going out in the cold to enjoy some ice fishing! The temperatures are beginning to drop (and stay there). And ice fishing takes additional preparation and equipment than normal fishing. So, we’ve composed a list of necessities you may want to consider when venturing out on your next ice fishing excursion.

Plus, most ice shelters are made to be extremely portable, so they are easy to maneuver and get on and off the frozen body of water. Stop in and browse our selection of shelters from the leading brands in ice fishing.
