Sunset on LOW MN. (lake of the woods)

A "pout" (eelpout), ling, burbout, what ever you want to call them.

fish camp.

nice walleye.

I thought everybody would like this.

This is a bombardier School bus manufactured in 1950. A winter time school bus. Originally it would have had a flat head 6 cylinder and a 3 spd manual trans.

It now has a 318 and an auto trans.

It belongs to forum member "white bear", he can tell you more about it.

He brought it up to our fishing spot on Saturday to give some rides. If you are going to go for a ride in/on a 62 year old snowmobile.... This is the ONLY way to do it. grin

Something clever here.

It was cold, damn cold.

You can see behind the fish bucket that the house frame is part ways up. We were cranking up to head home after about 50 hours on the ice.

Heading home.

My job for las night, turn these...

Into a big bowl of this:

I'm pretty certain I drive the birthplace of your "ice shack" every day...nice digs!

This has been a fun thread to scroll through and I hope to be able to add some pictures to it this weekend. I've been working on a small, trailer mounted shanty that I can pull about 300 yds down to the end of the road we live on. The road ends at a public access to a decent sized lake.

I don't know why, but in the nearly 10 years that I've lived there I've only ice fished about 5 times on this lake. I hope having a shelter will make getting out easy enough to make winter fishing more appealing for me, the twins and possibly even the Mrs. I don't plan to leave the shanty on the ice, but will pull it onto the ice, tilt the bed of the trailer and set up shop.

4 out of 5 Great Lakes prefer Michigan. smile

Great Winter pics all you fellas up North...I've never stood on frozen lakes before,..your pics leave me in awe...

ND, eat this..?

Having never seen one, first thing that I thought of was the few ling cods I've caught off the coast of CA. Kinda similar in appearance.

Been missing your posts, wondering where you been. Glad to see your time has been well spent...
