Fishing clubs are diving into the new year with plenty of activities. With ice conditions being on the thin side, this is a good time to make sure your equipment is in good shape. If you don't ice fish, make an off season look at your open water equipment. Have you replaced your line? Is it full of kinks and knots? How old is your line?

Are your hooks sharp? Ice anglers can tie on the baits they want to use on their next outings. This saves time on the water, and it keeps hands warm. Those of us who have tied knots with miniscule lines on windy, frigid days know how difficult a simple project can become. The fingers move in slow motion. It's as though we forgot to put in our winter lubricant.

Check your locator batteries. Put some metal strip runners on the bottoms of your sleds to make the sleds last longer. Add some eye bolts to the sides of your sleds so you can more easily tie down your pails, rods, augers, etc.

Get ready for the Sports Shows too!
