Best advice yet. Check this link out of Nate Zelinsky's Tightline Ice Fishing classes....well worth the money for an ice newby!!!Dallas,
There are tons of ways to fish and you can get real bogged down with what types of lures & jigs to use. So the advice Fishinlooney gave you is real sound advice. If you can't find someone to take you along who has the gear and experience there are plenty of guides who do ice-fishing trips. Money well spent to learn from someone who does it for a living, has all the gear and will usually supply you with a sandwich or two for your hard earned dollars.
Meanwhile there are thousands of videos on YouTube you can watch to gain more knowledge and tips on what to use and "how to".
Good Luck and BE SAFE!!!!
