$6.99 (5-pack) | fishusa.com

Paddletail swimbaits are a staple among freshwater and saltwater anglers, usually rigged simply on a jighead. The SPRO Pocket Tail Minnow, with its distinctly ribbed body, is made of a tough elastomer material that floats to give the body more action. The 3.75-inch Minnow is available in 16 colors.

Compression Circulation & Warm Feet

$54.95 | cepcompression.com

Technology from the ski slopes brought to bear for ice fishing, as the graduated compression profile of Ski Merino Compression Socks from CEP increases blood circulation to keep feet warm. The socks are amazingly light, a blend of merino wool and high-tech synthetic fibers that keep feet dry as the compression design stimulates muscles and blood flow. Antibacterial silver treatment reduces odors.
