How cool! I'll bet they're having fun. It still amazes me that animals can live through in freezing weather while we have to put on coats, boots and gloves and may still risk hypothermia.

Raven said...

Interesting photo. I have never seen ice fishing before.

VALKYRIEN said...

Aren't there supposed to be little huts or something they use for this??

Brr...!

Linda said...

Wow, hard to believe that's a lake. Amazing that it can freeze like that. Beautiful.

kden said...

Beautiful view. I've never been ice fishing. It requires two things that I don't have, patience and warmth, ha.

Janice Thomson said...

Raven said...

Cool shots. I enjoyed scrolling down and catching up on all that I've missed. Being lazy tonight and not commenting. Good to have my computer back after almost a week. Yikes!

Gattina said...

I have never seen ice fishing life ! only in movies or photos.

ilanadavita said...

Nice photos. Some people were having fun.
To answer your question on one of my shots I had posted the second photo but only in sepia.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Doesn't ice fishing look like a very cold way to have "fun"? It's popular up here too!

The Right Blue said...

Looks mighty cold to me! I think I would stick to summer fishing if I were those guys.

Carletta: I have done ice fishing and even when I caught fish I was cold. I thought it wasn't that much fun.

Kerri said...

I've never been ice fishing before! Neat shots!!

Rose said...

The one guy in the top picture looks like he has something on his line--or else he is hung on something.

I have never ice-fished--not sure if I would like it or not. People seem to have a lot of fun with it though.

George said...

It's cold here in Tennessee this morning, but at least not cold enough to permit ice fishing. Thanks for sharing these.

simply divina said...

I really want to experience this in the future so nice..Thanks for sharing them.

Darla said...

That is surely something I will only see in photos.......cool!

Shelly said...

That's something I've always wanted to try...maybe someday ;)

The Texican said...

Just throw your catch in the freezer, or thaw and cook. Brrrrr. Pappy

Deborah Godin said...

Great shots! Your ice fishers are much closer than mine, you can actually see what they're doing! But I have to admit, much as I like being out in nature, the "fun" of this pasttime kind of eludes me. To each his/her own, I guess. :-)

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

That does look cold! Great shots.

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Now that's something worth seeing. But, tell me, they catch anytihng?

Will said...

Cool! I have read about ice fishing and even seen some photos before but have never witnessed it up close.

Janet, said...

You really have to be a dedicated fisherman to do that. I'll have to ask my son where Turkey Lake is.
