Since we've had so much cold weather in this area, the ice on Tawas Lake has become extremely thick. Now, we have ice fishermen who are putting up their own personal ice shanties and some of them even drive their vehicles out to where they've chosen to fish. First they use an auger to bore a nice sized hole through the ice and then drop their lines down into the icy waters of Tawas Lake, to catch some fish. I spoke with a fisherman, who was finally calling it quits for the day. I asked him if they were having any luck and his reply was, 'No, we're not catching any today, but tomorrow I will be back to get 'em!' With that kind of determination, he will surely be able to fill those buckets, tomorrow

@kobesbuddy I always thought it was very unique to go ice fishing. I watched a fishing show one time, what their little shacks look like on the inside, and they were cooking in there. The whole thing is kind of strange and amazing.

What a bunch of idiots! LOL It's one thing to drive a 3,000 pound vehicle out onto ice but to park that much weight so close together in one area is just asking for trouble.
