Photos from atop 30 inches of ice

I'm back home now from Grand Rapids, Minnesota.  It was a good trip.

I've never fished through 30 inches of ice before.  This was quite an experience.  Drilling holes with a power auger and digging down until the motor just about its the surface of the ice is incredible.

I fished Bow String Lake with Jim DaRosa of the Fishing and Outdoor Radio Show and guide Tom Neustrom on one day.   We fished out of a Frabill ice shelter and was extremely comfortable as it kept us out of some heavy winds.  On the next Jim and I were with Rod and Nik Dimich.  Rod and Nik have a hard sided ice house that we fished from.  It was a wild time being on the ice and catching some nice fish.  We also had some cooked for us at the Gosh Dam Place in Grand Rapids.

One thing that I really enjoyed was watching the fish move around with a MarCum underwater camera.  I got to use an MarCum flasher too.  It’s really neat to see a fish come up off the bottom to take your bait.  I feel very comfortable saying that without quality tools like this, ice fishing would never be the same.  It makes no sense to fish blind.

Quite a few photos were taken and I’d like to share them with you in this blog.  Check them out and enjoy.
