I have never understood ice fishermen! For those of you who are not sure what they are here is a brief description:
This is a photo of the frozen lake, the little sheds are ice houses or "bob houses" that guys build out of "odds & sods" from their yards.
They drag these onto the ice and live in them whilst they fish through sawn out holes in the ice.
Yes, it can get as cold as -25 degrees.
Yes there are no toilets.
Some have wood stoves for heat but the majority wear many layers of clothing!
Plenty of beer is consumed!
I have never understood the need for such "desperate fishing", however early this morning I snapped these photo's and I have to say that it does look rather romantic!
Close ups of the "bob houses" to follow later this week!
I know you are all riveted!
