Ice Fishing in New Brunswick

Ice fishing gear is highly specialized. An ice saw, auger or chisel is used to cut a circular or rectangular hole in the ice. The size of the hole generally suggested is 8 inches (20 cm). Power augers are sometimes used. If these tools are not available, an axe may be used to chop the hole. A skimmer, a large metal spoon with holes in it, is used to remove new ice as it forms and to clear slush left from making the hole.

This ice hut only has a canvas covering a wooden frame to help keep the elements out. Sometimes a small propane or napta camping heater is used to keep the fisherman warm.
