Ice thickness is always well worth talking about in virtually any dialogue of ice fishing. I realize this advice is old hat to knowledgeable ice fishermen, but it's nonetheless worth mentioning for anyone who might be newer to the idea of angling on a frozen pond. In nearly all situations four inches width of ice is thought to be safe for walking and angling through the ice. I personally like to have 6 inches of ice or more, but this isn't really necessary.

Poppers are a handy thing for fishing so keep a couple in your pack. You'll also want a range of fishing lures, hook varieties, sinkers, clasps and other fundamental fishing gear. Also a bar, ice spud or auger for your ice holes. Hit your nearby fishing store just before the trip to choose any kind of live bait required for the species and pond you want to visit.
