My brother and I went up to the Lake of the woods in northern Minnesota to do some ice fishing.  The ice was 19" thick.  The ice is slow developing this year do to the early and frequent snow falls.  The snow actually insulates the ice.  We kept 12 fish out of the 40 - 50 fish we caught.  Lots of fun!!

Walleyes are delicious.

Ice fishing like that is the way to do it. Sitting on a bucket with the wind blowing and freezing my arse off is not what I call fun.  Mad

Ahhhhh man! You suck. The ice here is so thin you'd go straight to the bottom.

Awesome catch! I bet he was nice on the plate.

My brother and I both have fish houses on wheels.  They are essentially a camper with most of the ammenities, with a couple of modifications,  they're designed to be lowered flat on the ice and with holes in the floor.  They have LP forced air furnaces, electric outlets (run by a Honda 2000 generator) microwave, etc., etc.  The important thing is that you can go fishing for a couple of days on the ice.....comfortably.  Like Pato mentioned "not freezing my arse off"    Very Happy 

The fish is a 22" Walleye, about 4 lbs.  They catch them a lot bigger but that was the biggest for me this weekend.

No, my brother's is a commercial one.  The brand name is Ice Castle.  Mine was made by a marine dealer that builds and sells fish houses.

Went fishing this weekend and caught some Saugers and a few Walleyes.  A couple of meals of fresh fish is always good.  The ice is now 31" thick on Lake Of The Woods.
