Default Ice Fishing lures

What colors of ice flies are the best to use? I am pondering getting involved with ice fishing this year and have no idea where to start.

Small white tube jigs or marabou jigs tipped with a worm or piece of frozen minnow works for trout everywhere I've tried.

I like Maniac Ice Cuttrs in white, green, and the sparkle colors. Use them with a 1/16 oz jig head in matching colors. Tip with worm, or bait fish.
For pan fish, I do best with rat finkies and ginz worms in green, orange and pink. Tip them with wax or meal worms or perch meat.

I have heard that those are pretty successful little jigs, I picked some up at a convention last year, but failed to use them. Ill have to try them out this year.

The Ice cutters work great anywhere I have been. I like to keep with the glow in the dark white, or chartruese. I bought a bunch of those Whattacrickets a couple years back & I like using those also, I dont know where to get more of those, but the Ice cutter seems to best look like it. I also like to use the foxy jigs and larger white glow or chartruse tube jigs. For Perch I like to use a Gitzit cricket tipped with a wax worm. For trout I like to use minnow with the crawdad smelly jelly or a good ol waxy or mealy!!!

Also, depending on where you are fishing and what species you are targeting it can be helpful to put an attractor (blade) above your jig/fly. They look like elongated spoon blades and come in gold and silver colors. I tried fishing two poles side by side a few times at Hyrum and always did better on the one with the attractor.
