I was raised in Florida so this hardwater fishing is a new experience. I will be returning from Kuwait at the end of October. I have an ice scoop, some jigs and spoons, and a ugly stick pro ice combo. I know there are more things that I will need. I live in Wasilla and I am looking for some close to home places to fish. Any information on places to go and gear that works would be great because I am pretty lost on this subject. I also have the book the Highway angler. Thanks.
