Why I don’t Ice Fish Anymore

IS THIS WHY I DON’T ICE FISH, ANYMORE?
Those fond Minnesota memories …..
Here are the BASIC steps to retrieve the mother lode you might say…..
Have a good spot picked out….
Get your equipment and tools ready……
Cutting your ‘sweet spot……….
Making sure the hole is large enough………
Clearing out the ice for your hole…….. You might make certain you have your ‘ladders’ and men ready for your catches……….
Putting your scuba gear on and getting ready to go down for your catch…..
Making certain you know exactly which type you are after………..
The hard part … is waiting for the ‘hit’…………
Once you have a ‘hit’ then comes the retrievement process…….
If it’s ‘hooked well’ then up comes your prize………
Admiring the ‘catch’ as it comes up…………..
Procuring your catch to make sure it does NOT get away again…………
Nothing like a good ‘reeling it in’ feeling…………
Your ‘catch’ is almost secured…………..
It is extremely important your tools (ladders etc.) are workable………….
Some of the best tools are the simplest……….
Nothing like team work to bring a good ‘catch’ in…….
Everyone pulls their share of work when fishing………
Your prize ‘catch for the day’ is landed……….
Here is another good ‘catch’……..
Yeah, some catches are smaller than others, but they can all be keepers…..
Some are even still ‘alive’…………
See the lights are still on……..
They have almost got it ‘landed’………….
What a beauty, huh?
Sometimes one can get into a ‘school’ of them, and ‘land’ them all……..
However as much fun as it is to ‘land them’ it seems like this happens year after year… it is a ‘seasonal’ fishing thing……..
The locals never seem to learn……
Well, another season and another fun day of the same thing we did last season. Maybe thats why I don’t icefish anymore.
