Has anybody here ever gone ice fishing? I've never tried it, but I think it would be an interesting experience. Whenever I think of it, the movie Grumpy Old Men and the shacks they had out on the lake comes to mind.

I have never tried either Snowy and I loved "Grumpy Old Men." It would be fun once or twice but it's not something I would want to do on a regular basis. Too cold!!

I used to go ice fishing with my grandpa quite often in the winter. I never did a lot of actual fishing, though. I would get bored fast and spend most of my time ice skating while my grandpa fished. He had a little ice fishing shack with a little propane heater in it. It would get quite warm and toasty in there with the heater going. My grandma would pack us a lunch and we would be on the ice most of the day. It was not unusual for my grandpa to catch over 100 perch in a few hours.
