Here are some videos taken on a recent ice fishing overnight. We sledded about a mile from the trucks.

Well, that was the best entertainment I've had all day! You should take Janice more often...looks like she brought you some luck. /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Looks like a fun time was had by all. Can beat fish for food either! WOW, livin' large Kifaru style.

Singleshot : You sure did eat them and a couple were pretty good sized. A great outing indeed.

How did the stove mods work?? This winter here makes me think I could use a 16 or 20 man ice house.

Herb, the test began very satisfactorily. But turned into "inconclusive". We had pitched the tipi close to the bank...mostly for easy access to firewood. Turned out to be too close. Rotten ice. Result was poor pitch (perhaps you saw the gaps around the perimeter in the videos), and a crack developing in the ice right through the tipi. The crack allowed seepage into the tipi from below. So. We're going to do another outing next weekend. Pitch out onto good ice. Better test.

I'm happy for all that there will be more testing, such a labor of love. Good to see some of the Staff getting some time out of the shop too.
