As a full service outfitter all of the equipment and necessary instruction is included on all of our ice fishing trips. We provide all ice fishing equipment, safety equipment, ice fishing shanties with heaters (1 shanty for every 4 anglers), bait and tackle, Garmin fish finders, and if conditions permit – Underwater cameras. Full Day Ice Fishing Trips do include Lunch, snacks, and beverages.
Where do we meet our guide?
Once your date is confirmed your guide will reach out to you for introductions and be available to answer all ice fishing questions that arise as you prepare for your trip. Prior to your trip, we will send you a google maps PIN and detailed directions where to meet your guide on the day of your trip. There is quite a bit of set-up for each trip and your guide will have the set up complete prior to your arrival to ensure that your time is spent fishing, NOT spent setting up.
What to bring
Your guide will provide everything you need for a successful day on the ice. We provide all of your fishing and safety equipment so all you need to bring is warm winter clothing (winter hat, winter gloves, balaclava, warm winter jacket, snow pants) , waterproof boots and a fishing license (if over 16).
What Species will we target?
That is up to you and your guide! Depending what you are after, we will assign you to a guide that is best for your request. If you want to jig a large body of water for lake trout or salmon, fish tip ups and dead stick for northern pike, or go for high numbers of panfish we can make it happen.
How do we pay?
Adirondack Ice Fishing accepts CASH, CHECK, or VENMO. You may pay with credit card for a 3% service charge
Should we tip our guide?
Gratuities are not required or included, but are encouraged if your guide put forth their best effort to provide a safe, entertaining, and successful guide trip. The fishing industry recommends the standard service industry rate of 20% gratuity as a ballpark for gratuities.
Where do I buy a fishing license?
A New York State freshwater license is required to ice fish if you are over 16 years old. There are no additional stamps or specific addition needed for ice fishing in the Adirondacks.
