Fishing for Panfish is a blast, we all know that. Setting up a couple of tip ups while out scouting for Bluegills, Crappie, Perch or other panfish is also another way to have some fun. However, if you really want a rush, try spearing. Yes, spearing through the ice is a blast.

While getting set up for spearing may cost a couple of more dollars than a inexpensive combo and a couple of ice jigs, it’s well worth the time and money. Some of the equipment you’ll need, you may already have. You’ll need some type of shanty with a large opening, a pull over type shanty works well for spearing. The next thing you’ll need is a spear, decoys and an ice saw.
