Have you ever been ice fishing?
« on: February 04, 2011, 10:09:47 am »
Living in Minnesota, it was one of our winter options.  We have had ice houses that were a fairly good size.  We even had a heater in them.  I went a lot, but it scared the heck out of me.  We had to drive on the ice to get to the house.  The ice was usually plowed so we had a "road".  I always rode with my car door open so I could get out quick if the ice started to crack.  I was also nervous to be in the house with a heater - afraid the heat would melt the ice.  I don't recall that we caught that much fish.

Hey we have lakes here that turn to ice maybe that will be a saturday venture.  How thick does the ice have to be to do it so that you dont fall in.

growing up in northern WI -- ice fishing is a must.
ice fishing in a "hut" with heaters and hot food, etc --- that wasn't TRUE ice fishing to us.
We used to ski and or ice skate across the ice to go get the fish!  :)  wonderful past time.

My non-winter husband was amazed to see all the people standing on the ice and all the trucks/cars, etc ON the ice.

Although I lived in SD and MN a few years, I never had the chance to go ice  :fish:ing. I saw people doing it, but never actually knew anyone who did it to go with.

I live in south Florida. The only ice fishing I do is at the fish counter at the grocery store when they have them laid out on ice. :)

I think ice fishing kind of sounds fun.. but I bet it I got out there in the cold and had to wait for a fish to bite... I would be saying otherwise
