    You need to wear layers… I always wear a hoodie to keep my head warm and a pair of thos muck boots that are insulated. My secret weapon is my ‘buddy heater’ that runs on propane – works like a bomb. If it rains or snows, you’ll need another layer – a poncho or raincoat. Oh – and make sure you bring at least one pair of extra gloves in case yours get wet.

    Do you remember being told as a kid that you lose most of your body heat through your head?? Well – make sure you wear a warm hat at all times. I wear two beanies – works like a charm.

    Dressing warmly is essential to being able to stay out on the ice for a long period of time. Besides knit hats or McKinsey hats, you might wear a balaclava, which will cover your whole face with the exception of your eyes. Instant heat packs can be taken along if your feet or hands become too cold.

    Many favorite spots for ice fishing offer shack rentals, which will help to keep you warmer, too. Skip the booze, it’s a depressant, and take along a thermos of coffee or hot soup. Keeping your core warm is important.
