Top Ice Fishing Gear for 2024

Ice fishing gear has really grown over the last several years. Now it’s a bit more than tip-ups, ice fishing rods, and augers. Today’s gear includes the latest in technology that makes your time-out on the ice much more fun and a lot easier. Gear up for this season by adding a few new items to your gear.

We have created a list of some top ice fishing gear items

Frabill Magnum Bait Station

The first item on our list for the top ice fishing gear is the Frabill Magnum Bait Station. This is an insulated live-bait cooler designed to keep minnows lively for at least 3 days. This is a 19-quart cooler that will easily hold all of your bait. The cooler is overbuilt making it durable to handle the roughest rides on the back of a snowmobile or ATV.

It has a built-in aerator. Powered by two D cell batteries or a 12-volt adapter. It comes with a padded shoulder strap for your comfort. It comes with a lift-out liner to keep your hands dry when retrieving bait.

Replacement parts are available for easy repairs.

Jiffy E6 Lightning, Model 56

Second on the list is the Ion G2 8″ Electric Power. This is an electronic auger that features the longest-lasting ION battery available. This Auger was designed to drill 80 holes through 24 inches of ice with a 6 or 8” auger blade.

There is no motor to startup with. The battery provides full torque until it loses all its charge. It weighs just 17 pounds. Which makes it 10 pounds lighter than the comparable Jiffy gas-powered auger. In extremely cold weather you will want to keep the battery warm. You can keep it in a lunch cooler with a couple of hand warmers.

I have been camping and going outdoors for over 15 years! My first experience was when I joined the scouts. There I learned a lot. From building a campfire to set up a really big tent. Then I know this is awesome. Around 2005 I also started Geocaching. This is a lot of fun. And every time we go camping we look at the map to see if there are some nice caches around.
