Hi Mike... Beautiful photos.
I, too, enjoy the camradery of fishing with the guys and have had some great times.
I felt better when you described that you did not spend the night out there, but returned to civilization.
I have got to tell you though as a southerner those pictures looked like my definition of " Hell of Earth "... Too cold !!!!!!
I have a buddy that lives in St Paul and he has described to me some very elaborate ice houses and even said some of the " Ladies of the Evening " frequent some spots.
