    my friend says that the fish taste exceptional in winter too phil .
    and all size fish are still active under the ice ?
    what about river systems ?
    do they fish well with the ice , or the flow stuffs that idea ?

    I've seen rivers freeze up, but never where I fished. The flow mostly keeps ice from forming, not always but mostly. Either way, I don't think I'd trust the depth of the ice. Falling through the ice in a lake is one thing, in a river you're a goner. Nearly lost a dog that way.

    When I was a wee lad we didn't bother with the jackalopes (too easy), we all went snipe hunting. We'd spend all night sometimes lurking around the campfire waiting for the night snipe to get within range, It's a tough hunt! You gotta have food, fire, girlfriend and a sleeping bag. Hardest part is staying awake.

    Bluey, Just to rattle your cage a bit I've driven double semi's out on the ocen up here. Like a road train but only 2 wagons. The ice was 12-15' thick. Almost 4 meters. Yes I'm sure that there was still fish under me even then.
    We just hit a patch of warm weather here. it's a touch above freezing..

    no alcohol on this little boat Clifford, shes a dry ship .
    no booze
    no drugs
    and no women
    its apart of our OH&S that we don't even drink onboard after we unload and are tied in the moorings .
    we drink on the wharf beside the boat sometimes, but never on it .

    WOW, Pretty damn close Bluey! :D
    That's an ice worm. It actually lives in the ice year `round. It can get up to 75'/ 25m from what I've been told. But only that big around.

    That TV show was just for tourist complete with scripts and fully lined out for the watchers. Nothing to do with very much real life. I know some of the drivers/actors and it's faked for TV.
    Just like the rest of those so called "reality TV" shows. I knew a Crabber that was on that series too before he passed on. He said the same.
