Last weekend on one of our more popular ice fishing destinations in NW Indiana a guy fell through. He was rescued after the guys fishing around him saw him go in, showing the importance of being close enough to be seen or heard. Also someone was carrying a rope, which may have been a life saver.

use these 3 fishing tips too.1. Fish face upstream. If you are behind them, you can catch them directly in front of you.2. If you can see to the bottom of the creek, they can see you! Approaching a creek or stream from the bank often spooks fish.3. It is much easier to cast to a pocket, pool or small riffle from the center of a stream and maintain a slow retrieve. Best of all you are in an ideal position to cast effectively towards either bank.
