One question you really should ask yourself is what kind of ice fishing would you really like to do???? Not what you do now, but what would you like to do in the seasons to come?
If your fishing consists of sitting in the wheel house, heat blasting, tv on, tunes cranked up all weekend, then in all honesty, AA
may not be what you need.
If you are like me, and like to move around a lot, run and gun, or sit on a hot hole outside, then AA
is worth it's weight in gold. Warm and dry baby, that's what it's all about for me. Wearing AA
instead of carharts and 5 sweatshirts has given me the ability to move around much more because I'm that much more comfortable. If it's nasty out and the other guys are willing to sit in the portable on a non-existant bit cuz they don't want to move, that's their deal. I want to catch fish and wearing my AA
makes me lightweight, warm, dry, and keeps the wind off me.
Plus, if you break through, you will float. That in itself is a huge plus if you like early or late ice.
