Ice fishing...

They were out fishing on Holland Lake on a beautiful January weekend afternoon. I wonder how thick the ice is?!

  1. C'est quelque chose que l'on ne connaît pas par chez nous, les lacs gelés, ou peu...
    Ce doit être un plaisir de glisser sur ces étendues, à condition de ne pas avoir trop peur que la glace cède !
    L'eau dessous ne doit pas être très chaude.

  2. I just learned from my brother that over the holidays in St. Cloud, MN, his son visiting home from med school went ice fishing and caught a fish, and also did an annual polar bear plunge on New Year's Day. Brrrr.

  3. I always wonder at the stability of the ice, and hope that the fisherman know what they're doing. It must be a compelling pastime since so many people do it!

  7. I always heard that ice fishing is just an excuse for guys to hang around together without the women, and drinking beer. Is that how it works out there?

  8. It would have to be plenty thIck before I would venture out there! They have been complaining just north of here because the ice isn't very thick at all and they can't get the ice huts out as they usually do.

  10. I haven't been to "my" lake for a while, usually there will be a lot of ice fishing there during cold winters. Never seen a tent there, these guys are pros!
