Things to Consider & Bring
Clothes – While the shelters have heat, you will spend quite a bit of time on the ice tending to lines. It’s always easier to remove layers than be cold all day. Ice Cleats (Yaktrax) are also suggested if you have them.
Camera & Cooler – To capture the memories and take home your catch.
