Ice fishing, anyone?

This is a video I put together. It is a vid of our church's men's group ice fishing trip to Lake Mille Lacs. A cold front moved in the night we arrived and brought temps down to -30*. Still, it beat sitting in a church pew!

Spent many hours in the fish house when I was young buck and living in Minnesota. Brings back some nice memories (and few not so nice ) Thanks for posting.

Well, it's a church video. So...

However, keep in mind that at the end of the video I give credit to "Otis" for making a special appearance. Nuff said

I'm obviously way out of touch. I envisioned a 10x10 shack with seven guys shivering around a single hole in the ice on canvas stools. Guess I watched "Grumpy Old Men" too many times.

I could never get into ice fishing, 'course none of my friends have a shack like that one. I don't like the short little rods and the fish are understandably lethargic.
