BAUDETTE, Minn. -- There are rules for ice fishing. Not many, but they exist.

• You must find ice covering a body of water where fish are purported to live.

• Have a fishing license, and a five-gallon bucket to lug your rods and tackle.

• Possess patience. If patience is in short supply, make sure that either A) your ice auger has plenty of fuel in it, or B) you are not ice fishing.

• Dress warmly.
