Safety Rules For Ice Fishing

1. Avoid Moving Water

Ice that forms over moving water is usually weaker, especially where there is stronger current. Avoid this ice unless you are positive it is frozen atleast 5 inches thick. Ice fishing safety should start and end with the thickness of the ice.

2. Ask A Local

Before you pack up the gear and head out to the lake only to see you can’t even walk on the ice, try calling a local baitshop and ask the thickness (and some tackle tips.)

3. Know Where You Stand

Ice near the shore can be weaker than ice in the middle of the lake, and sometimes vice versa. Don’t think one part of the lake is exactly the same as the other.

4. Watch For Snow

Ice with piles of snow can increase the pressure and decrease the safety on the hard water. Snow can also insulate and warm the ice, slowing the freezing process. Snow is essential to the winter, but can definitely impact your ice fishing safety.

5. Listen To Your Surroundings

The first sign the ice is bad is cracking. While there are some cracking and planing noises you can ignore (you will learn what these noises are after time), cracking is a sign to move to another spot on the ice.

6. Bring Spikes

Ice fishing spikes can be worn around your neck and, hopefully, you’ll never have to use them. They are two sharp objects connected by a piece of rope, just in case you do happen to fall through a hole in the ice, you can use them to crawl your way back out by puncturing the ice, much like a rockclimber. They are one piece of ice fishing safety equipment that are absolutely essential.

7. Don’t Fish Alone

I know part of the allure of fishing in general is some alone time outdoors, but it simply isn’t smart to stand on the ice without another person there, just in case. Make sure you’re within eyesight of a fishing buddy whenever you go ice fishing. With that in mind, though…

8. Spread Out

If there are too many people congregated in one area it can drastically decrease the strength of the ice. Don’t get too close together, especially where there is already an ice hole.

9. Dress Warm

If the water is frozen, believe it or not, the air will probably be cold. Make sure you dress the part and protect yourself from the elements.

1.Buyer Guide for Kayaks Paddles

I went shopping online at 4 different online stores to find the right paddle for my kayak.

The first store I went to was REI to get more infomation about buying the right paddle for my new kayak. There are a few thing to think about shift, blade, material and price, and last length. By choosing the right paddle you can save yourself a lot energy. Here is some information from REI:

Figuring out the right size (length) of paddle is surprisingly straightforward. The wider your boat is, the longer your paddle needs to be. Your height is also a factor, especially for a narrower boat: Taller paddlers need longer paddles.

2.How to find a good kayak rental company?

I like traveling and trying new things. I have been to 20 different city this past month. I have enjoy good food, good weather, roof top bars, and the beach. I also have enjoy learning and listening to interesting people. There are different rental programs across the country at universities and colleges. I came a cross a program about the local University of North Florida (UNF), they offer “Gear Check-out & Adventure Trips.” The students can use the gear for free, for example, kayaks, canoing, and rock climbing.

The programs offered University of North Florida (UNF) allow students, staff and visitors to learn about team work in different environment. I like to see programs like that be very success like it is at our local university.

Best Fishing Practices

Many anglers plan ahead and incorporate best fishing practices using tips to ensure safe and responsible angling. Thank you to fisheries.noaa.gov/national/resources-fishing/catch-and-release-best-practices or providing the following tips:.

Plan Ahead

Know your fishing regulations and have the necessary equipment ready to release fish that you do not plan to keep.

Avoidance

Develop fishing skills to target the size and species you desire. Change location, depth, or bait to avoid catching fish you do not intend to keep.

Appropriate Gear

Use appropriately sized gear that is targeted to the species you desire to catch. Use circle hooks when planning to release fish and where they are required.

Landing Fish

Do not play the fish to exhaustion. Use line strong enough to minimize playing time. Land the fish quickly and if possible, release them while still in the water.

Handling Fish

Use knotless, rubberized landing nets and rubberized gloves to avoid removing the slime layer from the fish’s body. Keep the fish horizontal and support the body. Avoid dropping the fish, especially onto hard surfaces. Use release tools, such as dehookers and recompression tools, to minimize handling. Release fish as soon as practical and do not keep them out of the water longer than necessary.
