Active Ice Fishing | What Success Looks Like

How to Catch More Fish by Staying Mobile

Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually very easy to get too comfortable while ice fishing. Sure, you’re out on a frozen piece of water in some very chilly weather. But if you use a fishing shelter with a small heater, it’s pretty easy to take your jacket off, kick back, and enjoy a sandwich and a beverage. Even if the fish aren’t biting, you can still have a great time on the lake. This is why it can be so dangerous.
How could being comfortable possibly be a bad thing? Well, sometimes you’re actually out there to put some fish in the frying pan or freezer. And it’s hard to do that when the fish just simply aren’t below you. There’s no trolling in ice fishing, after all; at least not in the traditional sense. You’re pretty much limited to a cone about 10 to 15 feet wide, depending on the water clarity and how bright and loud your presentation is.
If you watch many ice fishing videos, you’ll notice one trend that really stands out: success usually comes to those who move around a lot. It’s not even revolutionary among ice fishing ideas, but in order to consistently catch fish, especially on unfamiliar lakes or waterbodies, you need to stay mobile and jump around until you find the right structure and some actively-feeding schools. In some cases, you may even need to chase them around throughout the day. Fish move to different areas as the day progresses, which means you need to move too. Knowing that, here are some ice fishing tips to keep you on the action all day long.

Blaze Pink Now Legal for Deer Hunting in One State!

Pink Camouflage | Wisconsin’s Hunter Orange Safety Rule Now Includes Pink!

According to an nbc15.com article, Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill allowing hunters to wear fluorescent pink instead of the traditional blaze orange. This bill will allow the traditional blaze orange required for clothing above the waste to now be swapped out for florescent pink if desired.
The premise behind this bill?
To get the already rising number of women who participate in their states firearms deer season to increase. Will it work, what do you think?
The rising number of women in the outdoors, and more particularly hunting, has given rise to a substantial increase in the praise of pink camouflage. So much so that one state has officially given the “OK” to hunting in it.

Camo Gun Cases | Protecting Your Firearm with Style

If you travel very much during the hunting season, you probably have two problems. First, your legs and rear side get pretty weary of the long miles. But second, you need to make sure your firearm stays safe and contained while in transit. Our rifles, shotguns, or even handguns are often quite the investment on our part, so why take the risk of not properly protecting them? Besides that, it’s the law just about anywhere that a firearm needs to be in a case when in a moving vehicle.
Just like your favorite firearm, the protection of that gun can be overhauled into a camo gun case with your favorite Moonshine Camo pattern. There are a couple different types of gun cases available on the market. They include hard case, soft case, and cloth or other material options. In order to choose the best one for yourself, you need to look at your specific hunting conditions. Let’s look at a few examples.
Keep Your Investments Safe on the Road | Moon Shine CamoHard gun cases offer more protection in extremely rugged conditions or when you need to fly to your destination (i.e., have you seen the way some airline employees handle your luggage?!). They have a very sturdy shell that you can often lock, and the interior is padded with protective foam to nestle your gun safely. This is important if you want your scope to stay dialed in after traveling a long distance or over rough country. Quality hard cases are often expensive, but it’s better than a cheaply made hard case that won’t offer the security you’re seeking.

How Moon Shine Camo Fits into Your Ice Fishing Plans

Outdoor Clothing for the Ice Fishing Enthusiast

Imagine a calm day on the ice where the sun is shining and the wind is barely a whisper. You don’t even need your shelter with you, and can just sit on a camp chair in front of your ice fishing holes. Suddenly a flag from a tip-up shoots high into the air, and you scramble to get over to it. The line is spooling out steadily, but you set the hook as soon as it pauses. After a good fight, you pull a very nice northern pike through the ice and re-set the bait for the chance at another. Life is good.
Though it’s been an unusual winter so far in terms of warmer temperatures, there are still opportunities for hard core ice fishermen and women to get out on the water. If you haven’t tried ice fishing before, you really owe it to yourself to go try it at least once. If you have fished on hard water before, then you know how addicting it can be. Perhaps the best part about it is that you can make it as extravagant or as rugged as you wish. A day on the ice could mean a several-mile hike, chiseling through feet of ice, and fishing with just a tip-up line. It could also include sitting in a deluxe ice castle watching television in your shorts, while cooking your favorite dinner on the stove.

Get Your Truck Moon Shine Ready for Hunting Season

Wrap Your Gear in Moon Shine Camo

When preparing for a hunt, we often try to conceal everything we have. Camo clothing, backpacks, blinds, and guns; if it can be camouflaged, itwill be camouflaged. However, very few people fully camouflage their truck or SUV. Perhaps it’s because we would only use it for hunting seasons a few months out of the year, and they don’t want a fully camouflaged vehicle for all that time.
With Moon Shine Camo’s vinyl truck wraps, however, you can create a customized lifestyle camo vehicle that suits your tastes and will make an impression the other 9 to 10 months on the calendar. You’ll be able to express your passion for the outdoors and still represent your other interests at the same time.
Vinyl truck wraps come in any of the different camo colors and patterns that Moon Shine offers to match your preferences. From Harvest Moon, Muddy Girl, Outshine, Toxic, Undertow, or Wildfire, you’ll find something that will match your personality and will be equally at home in the outdoors as in town.
