Anglers can take advantage of this downtime by putting away their ice fishing gear and getting their fair-weather fishing gear ready for the open water season.
Taking the time to properly store ice fishing gear during the off season will save you a ton of grief next winter.
While the line is removed, take the time to lubricate the gears and bearings in the reel. This is rarely done on ice fishing reels but it’s an important step in keeping ice reels in game shape. Store all fishing rods and tip-ups where nothing will be placed on top of them during the off season. Check all hooks and repair, replace and sharpen as needed.
Tip: Sporting stores usually put their remaining ice fishing gear on sale at the end of the season. Also, some stores have a recycling drop-off for used fishing line.
