Dean: Grumpy Old Men did not give a very accurate representation of Minnesota ice fishing. In my almost 50 years, I have never heard of a fish or ice house called an "ice shanty". It may be a term used in other parts of the country but not around here.


I have fished in Hawaii, Canada, Alaska, Mexico and in many parts of the U.S. I have a ten foot Pacific Blue Marlin on the wall in my family room. My wife would love to get rid of "The Fish" but it will go when I do.

Take care,
