What is "ice fishing"?

Sounds like nonsense.



Something clever here.

Wifey said that she saw pics in the paper of a couple of houses going through the ice. I'm not sure where.

Yep.

Ok I'm finally getting to a fishing report.

Here's an interesting lake rig se spotted on our way out to our fishing spot.

Here's a friend of ours pulling a big skid house behind a thiokol stryte.

Here we are dragging the trailer out from under our skid house. I drilled a hole through the 2 feet of ice behind the house and rigged an anchor with a chain and a bar under the ice, tied the anchor chain to the house and pulled the trailer out from under it.
