Remember that part in the bible where it talks about Jesus walking on water… Well I’ve driven on water.
Winter in Minnesota gets cold, ridiculously cold. The lakes freeze over so you can walk out on it. Once the ice gets to about 18″ thick then I’m even comfortable driving out on it (without my seat belt, of course, just in case).
And you can’t enjoy a lake in Minnesota without doing some fishing… which is where ice fishing comes into play.
There are three ways to ice fish- a hole in the ice and a bucket upon which to sit: “extremely cold” fishing, a portable ice house with or without heater: “cold” fishing (like the one above) or a tricked out trailer version, complete with heater, TV, bed, oven, whatever: “warm” fishing (below)
