    Jim,

    Do you have one of those portable type fishing shacks? I see a story on National Geographic once that showed all these people ice fishing and they actually had these little shacks that they were in to stay somewhat warm in. Right in the middle of the area of the shack was this hole in the ice that they fished out of. The area that the story was showing had hundreds of these type of structures present. The shacks was on a skid that could be pulled around on the ice to different locations. Looked like fun.

    Looks like fun, right . The picture with the metal buildings is from Quebec, now thats a set up. More like shack city.

    Where's the coolers for the cold beer.

    I see they have dish for the watching the games when the fish aren't biting. Or maybe they have those ice fishing hints on the Playboy channel.

    When I was a kid up in New York (40 miles south of Buffalo), my Dad and Uncle (who lived next door) had an ice fishing house which they would take out onto the lake every winter. Us kids liked it more than they did, I think.

    Of course, it was not unusual for that lake to freeze over a foot or so thick with ice. Used to race (if you could call it that) cars on the ice once it reached 6" thick.

    Before that, the ice on the lake was harvested and sent to the mid-west for use in ice houses and ice boxes - anyone remember those things? Refrigerators? Had not invented them yet, and then it took a while for those new-fangled things to become accepted and affordable where almost everyone had one.

    Not to worry, all that was well BEFORE my lifetime, I *am not* THAT old (maybe WC Jerry is ).

    I do, however, remember that my grandparents kept an ice box on the porch for cold drinks, and had ice delivered for it.
