    Hi Bluey. I think fish from under the ice are better eating. They are cold to start with and never get soft and mushy from being warm. IF my work is slow enough I'll try to go ice fishing on Thur. Otherwise it will have to wait for New Years Day. Family tradition. End of the holiday buying season and I can have a day off. So we go ice fishing that day. Sometimes have to go to the Bighorn mtns to find ice. Not going to be the case this year! Bruce

    Nothing full time.. But I've been there and done that before. Starting during the pipeline days in the mid 70's.

    I always got a bit whigged when riding a snowmobile across a frozen lake, can't imagine how puckered I'd be taking a truck across one.

    where I used to live we took he ice road across to the island all the time, ferry in the summer, ice road in the winter, while its not as bad as some think, the scary time is spring thaw, all the snow melts which leaves about a foot of water on top of the ice, now that's when your mind plays tricks
    I miss ice fishing though, driving the 4 wheeler or the pick up truck right to the hut

    Dobber are you talking about a place in Sweeden or Switzerland or in that part of the world? I think I saw a documentary about the way they make the road in one of those areas. Can't remember where but they make it into a four-lane highway!! Amazing! I would be terrified but if one goes around the lake it takes an hour or more.

    :) Fun fish to land. Usually put them back though. Bluey do you have a lot of sea urchins? I mean, do they ever happen to come aboard in the nets at all? One of my favorite things to eat hands down. YUM!! Next time I go to Jamaica I am going to feast on them.

    I love that expression! Picked it up a few years ago on a business trip down under and brought it back with me. It's now well established where I work.
