    Just slam your rod tip into the water and shake it around.
  8. Don't put your head in the water.

    Pam cooking spray works well

  9. reel magic or olive oil, or if too cheap put your mouth around the guides to thaw the ice off when it becomes impossible to cast!

    +1 for Blakemore's Reel Magic. Give each guide 1 or 2 shots of this stuff and then give your spool a good spray down and it will keep ice off the guides as well as keep you line a little more conditioned. I was not a believer in this product, but my cold water break-offs seemed to go away after using this product last year... so I'll stick with it.
