Calling the accommodations a "Motel" to avoid any Covid restrictions, lol, but I do have a question.

I have certainly ice fished for many years but never in a rented "Motel" and never overnight on the ice. It is my understanding that most items are supplied including holes, minnows etc. so no need to bring auger. Our group is there for the weekend.

However, given this will be a new experience, please provide this newbie with hints on what additional items I should bring to make the weekend more enjoyable. For example, should I be bringing a cooler, how many cases of water (5 people) for consumption and cooking/cleaning etc.....

Thanks and I apologize to the troops if this question sounds silly or burdensome.

Some outfitters list the items on their website[ like Reeds ] that you need to bring.
Each is different and some items may be dropped due to co vid.

Send a email to the business you are renting from and they will set you straight. Usually very helpful and want to keep customers happy so you will come back. As mentioned, things can be different with each operator.

One thing that tops my list are baby wipes. You’ll thank me
After that for me anyways are an extra pair of reading glasses.
A little tip from experience, don’t keep your phone , wallet and especially keys in your shirt or coat pockets. When you bend over to check your line …. Sploosh…

Cheers

Thanks to all that replied. Great ideas. Especially the wipes as I read through the thread. I really liked the "your a## will thank you".
