I am new to ice fishing and want tips on what i need, like what pound test on line, bait etc. also where is a good place thats rookie friendly. Im from Huntington Beach, Ca and been living here for 5 months. Now that i can't surf everyday, all i want to do is fish. I love it here in Colorado so far. People are really friendly and its not as crowded as HB. And props to ColoradoFisherman.com for helping out fellow fisherman.
