Ice Fishing
« on: January 17, 2011, 11:37:48 AM »
Spent the weekend in MI and had a chance to hang out with some fly fishing buddies on the ice.  Bought a gas auger this past summer at a garage sale and finally got  chance to play with it...punched a dozen holes in the ice, just because I could.   ;D  Sure beats doing it by hand.

Anyway, we caught a few gills & crappie.  One of my buddies got a 30" pike on a tip up.  There was plenty to drink, sauerkraut and sauge to eat...what a time!

Then these two showed up...

Amazing how many tip-up flags went flying. ;)

Were they slamming their faces against the ice trying to get to it?
