Ice fishing is the bridge to get outdoorsmen through the winter. Nobody craves braving the cold for the chance to do some fishing that is slower than normal, but it is still a great way to get outside during the colder months a wet a line.
A great way to combat the elements for ice fishing is build shacks or shanties designed to keep fisherman warmer than the otherwise would be out in the middle of a frozen lake.
These shacks often make people more comfortable and able to withstand days of fishing and laughing with the boys.
The long winters and slower fish can sometimes lead to ideas… you know the kind I’m talking about. Sometimes they are good, or funny or just something to pass the time.
It’s kind of the epitome of “boys will be boys” behavior.
