how to set up ice fishing pole插图

Best answer


Simply ram the trident looking end into the ice so it is facing straight up, with the U-shaped end, which looks like a wrench, facing upwards. This way you can place the ice fishing rod into the U-shaped holder end, and therefore you don’t have to hold it. Some people prefer to use wooden tip ups for ice fishing, which is fine.
