Ice fishing -- the thing to do over the Minnesota winter
Ice fishing is the thing to do in a Minnesota winter. It is at its peak right now, in January, and it will continue for many weeks. The thickness of the ice was a concern for a short time, but night time temps at ten below zero soon made more than enough, at first for walking, then snowmobiles appeared, and then the convenience of driving the pick up truck right up to the door of the fish house. The numbers soon passed a hundred shanties, and we'll probably see 250 or so out there.
