Chisels for Ice Fishing: Standard ice chisels or spuds are a long handled metal chisel flat on one side and beveled to form a thin sharp point on the other. These are simple and economical and work well for testing ice thickness but are noisy and can spook fish. Thick ice can be a limiting factor as chopping through ice of a foot or more can be difficult.

Technological advance in ice chisel manufacturing has created multi bladed chisels like the Jiffy 2pc Mille Lacs Ice Chisel and the Eskimo Redneck Ice Chisel they feature weighted handles for increasing chopping power, and specialized cutting surfaces to increase cutting depth with each chop. Their special stepped edges allow precise chopping, and can be used to flare out the bottom of holes or shave ice.

Hand and Power Ice Fishing Augers: Well-sharpened hand ice augers are reasonably priced, lightweight, and therefore the choice of many anglers. However, they can be taxing to use when ice gets thick.

STANDARD hand ice augers, like the Eskimo 6" HD 06 Hand Ice Auger and the HD-8 8" Hand Ice drill, are the most economical choice, but the blades must be regularly replaced to maintain peak cutting efficiency.

MODERN hand auger designs, such as the Eskimo Barracuda Turbo Ice Auger, feature a special set of angled blades that not only reduce the amount of time necessary between blade replacements, but make hole cutting easier and faster. Some models feature off-set handles, which may take awhile to master, but allow two-handed turning power, greatly increasing the auger's cutting speed.
