Default ice fishin...

I have done well in the past (havent fish craps threw the ice in a few years) on small jigs tiped with waxies, yah vary simple. The biggest thing is finding them, they will be in schools, so if you get one there is a good chance you will get a few more.Your bestchance is totalk to someone who has been out and did well.

One thing I have learned about ice fishing is don't always fish on bottom, mix it up alittle. I have caughtpan fish 2feet under the ice aftera day of fishing them on bottom. I think some times they find pits of food in the ice, but I could just be making that up .

Good luck, and dont forget thehot coffee.
