EQUIPMENT BASICS:

If you are going to try your luck from a commercially rented ice-hut, you probably won't need any equipment at all. These huts, which generally have room for between 4 and 6 people, are warmed up before you get there, have a big pre-cut hole in the middle, and are provided with an appropriate number of lines, minnows, and often salted minnows (used for chumming the water).
