2 nights is better than none (pic heavy)

Coldfeet and I have been planning on this trip for sometime now. The plan was to spend 5 days/4 nights camping, exploring, and relaxing however the forecast of 1/4 inch of rain today and tomorrow encouraged us to shorten the trip by 2 days. The trip consisted of hauling sleds over the lake for 2 and 3/4 miles to our base camp where we fished some, ate and drank well, enjoyed an Audible book, savored the views, and took a day trip to an island and bay on the lake I hadn't explored before. We both agreed we'll get together for more trips...

Nice! Probably a good thing that you got out when you did. Things are going to get soupy.

Looks like a great outing. Thanks for all the great pics. I don't know much about ice fishing. From the posts here on the forum, it seems to involve hauling a lot of gear, a ceremonial drilling of a hole thru the ice, then some beer drinking. I'm not sure I understand the holes, since nothing seems to come out of them. I think I would skip that part and get right to the beer.

I would have my dogs pulling that sled.:-)

I wondered how you guys were faring with the increasing temperatures and all. Glad you only had to bail on the last two days of your adventure. So happy that Coldfeet was able to use his new clothing & gear. He must have been like a kid in a candy shop.

That's all for now. Take care and until next time....be well.

...or just as a water supply, or just to see how thick the ice is.

Thanks for all the comments.

I shot plenty of video but it all seems like the same old stuff... maybe I'll edit something from it by August.

Schip, believe me we didn't fish hard and were more focused on the beer and whiskey... in moderation of course.

Snapper, yeah Coldfeet is a city man who yearns for the wilderness and was like a kid in a candy store. Sort of... like us all.

Richard, The ice thickness was 8 - 10 inches easy.

I had a GREAT TIME!

BIG thanks to bio for putting up with me.

My neck was hurting because I kept looking side to side at the views.

Lockjaw was setting in because of the smiles.

Only downfall was having to shave my 3 week old beard when I came home. Wife had razor and shaving cream waiting for me. Damn thing hurt.
