I'm all for ice safety. I'd say that all of us probably are. But so many aspects of ice fishing seem very dangerous to people who don't ice fish themselves. For example, connecting a ladder to the main ice on a lake, or wearing chest waders and hopping on the main ice shelf is not really a dangerous activity if you know the lake well enough. Especially if the water you are crossing to get to the ice is shallow and the water you are going to be fishing is shallow. Many people though, think it's crazy that I do such a thing. But, I don't think it's very risky when I'm drilling through 15 inches of ice on the main lake. The shores pulled away a little bit, but no big deal. Any other examples you can think of where If you don't ice fish, you wouldn't understand...

Going to Lambeau Field tomorrow to watch the Packers woop up on the Bears while breaking in your Ice Armor suit and new boots... If you don't ice fish or know a great team when you see it, you wouldn't understand.

Chopping down a Ice heave. Laying down planks to drive our old S-10 across. Snowing like crazy ended up being 6 inches, using a old magellan 310 to find our hot spot off the mouth of the Wolf. Catching a limit of walleye off Alder creek with your Best Friend.If you do not Ice Fish......

It's October 31. Snow squalls and wind gusts of 50 mph blowing in off Lake Michigan. Everyone else is unhappy. You are thinking : "oh yeah. This is more like it!". If you don't ice fish.......

Finished putting the boats away up north and rearranged the shed so that the portable and snowmobiles were in front. That got me excited and daydreaming about orange and red flags going up. If you don't ice fish...

Went to the local sporting goods store last night. I'm not sure who was more excited to see all the brightly colored ice fishing jigs on display. My 1 year old daughter or me ... If you don't ice fish, you wouldn't understand.

Casting - That same exact thing happened to me. That's funny.

Here's one. When the kids basketball coach lays out a few buckets for an activity on the gym floor and they are those 5 gallon Menards buckets. You know what I'm thinking....
