ICE FISHING 2

MOUNT CLEMENS MICHIGAN

There are probably more people
in those shanties than in those houses.
The parking lot has about 20 pickup trucks.
The wind chill is about minus ten degrees.
I thought my face would flash-freeze and fall off.

They have catalitic heaters , alcohol, and they'll do anything to get away from the house, ( like some people go take pictures) (:-)

They're only cold in the winter. I don't see a problem.

Would I have to live in one of these little
ice-cold boxes if I moved to Michigan?

It all looks very authentic, Larry...Just like in "Grumpy Old Men 2." Except in my picture of ice fishing, you can actually see something being caught...okay, so it's only ice...but they had a heck of a time hauling it in. And then I think they realized that the line was really just a guy line to a submerged pump. But I was pretty excited there, for awhile.

Anyhow. Yours is a much more comprehensive view of what real ice fishing is about. Nicely done.

Very very cold then...this is great work...minus ten to fish, when you break uo the ice, algidity will fly like bird freedly, then you catch the great fresh fish..cool, have a great dinner ..nice

Those guys are nuts! Minus ten degrees - ohhh, they are pretty safe above the water :-)
Excellent shot Larry.

LOL Cindi. They better be drinking 100 proof. It's too cold to even think about fishing. I'm glad I hate fish. LOL This makes me think of Grumpy Old Men. You'll have to get a picture when they're all bobbing in the sudden thaw we're suppose to get. ;>) Nice tone in this shot.

Too cold for me! I wonder if they have space heaters in those tents! I'm also wondering what they are drinking in there too!

good grief they must be nuts to go out in those temperatures! I hope they have heaters in their little huts.... ;)

Now this is something I have never seen before. Must be some hardcore fisherman to put up with the elements just to have a fish fry! Great shot Larry.
