Drill a hole in the ice for some frozen fish

By Larry Dablemont
    In days of yore I went ice-fishing in February, with a couple of Wisconsin friends who had access to an ice-fishing shack out on a frozen lake. It was a little city of a dozen shanty’s that looked a bit like Ozark storage sheds. Most had pickups parked behind them… a little scary to someone who was accustomed to weak ice at the best, back in the Ozarks. Inside was a good-sized hole in the ice and chairs and a heat stove up off the ice. All around the hole there were rugs and chairs and the fishing rods were only about two- or three-feet long.
