Winter fishing is an art, to me, of course, many can argue, however, that this is so. It is winter for fishing preparations and excitement more than any other time of the year.

And winter fishing on the ice? What fisherman would deny themselves this pleasure, but it has its own peculiarities. To ice fishing requires special adaptations, for example, to make a hole in the ice. Someone is using a drill, and someone ice pick, that’s about it, today will be the issue, but rather how to do with their hands.
What is it for?
The Icepick for fishing — it’s kind of a small crowbar (metal scrap on the wooden handle, usually metal part has four edges, and the tip well sharpened), which is a great tool for punching holes. Its advantage lies in the fact that it is possible to make the hole of any diameter, and if caught a big fish and will not fit in the hole, the ice pick will become your good helper in this case.
To make the hole, you need to chop ice around the circumference, and, if the ice is thick enough then the size of the circle needs to be larger than the hole 2-3 times. For example, if you need a hole with a diameter of 20 cm, initially the first chip the ice at an angle of 45 degrees on a circle with a diameter of 60 cm.
Another application — to check the ice strength.
Of course, the hole can be done and brown, however, there is more likely to scare away the fish. So Icepick was easy, remember that its length must not exceed 160 inches or be less than 110 centimeters, it is just comfortable to use.
