Default Ice fishing rookies

I have never been Ice fishing before, a friend(who has never been before either) and I planning on going next friday.
I bought some gear from a guy on craigslist. I got a couple poles,auger,shelter,sled and a bunch of jigs/ice tackle.
I was looking for some advice on a good lake to go to for some first timers, and any other advice.
We are both really excited to try it out but at the same time don't really know what we are doing.

You should try to meet someone at St. Mary's, Georgetown, or Officers Gulch so you can learn from them on lakes where you can catch some good numbers.

There is a seminar on ice fishing at Gander Mt in Aurora on Friday the 11th...it could be helpful.

Check the Announcements and Events tab...I believe there is some information that describes the event.

I agree with georgetown for a ice breaker into ice fishing. Might also look into Golden Gate Canyon state park. Its Close and lots of willing trout. Call up there for ice info, im sure its good. Tarryall is also a good bet for beginners. Good luck, next step after you get hooked is to get you some electronics.

Evergreen Lake is another good place. I met a lot of folks out there last winter and got into plenty of stocker bows.
