personally, I dont ice fish.. but lots do around here....


A friend built an ice shack frame totally out of PVC... Then he just attached insulating styrofoam sheets to the sides using 'pull ties', added a plywood floor and a troff on the floor where he's cutting a trench into the pond - w/chainsaw... Add a little door and its done..

Looked like a decent low cost setup...
It was cheap to make and easy to put together...


he's using it to fish smelts...

anybody ice fish out there? What are you fishing for?

It hasn't stayed cold enough around here yet. We need temps in the 20's for about a month to get good ice. Whe the ice is good the fishings generally good too.

I dont know Johnyray, Yes they go out in freezing temps.. but ice fishing consists of basically using a drop line... not much sport in that...

I've never understood that!:confused: Why would anyone fish for ice when you can make it in most icemakers or cut some out of the lake.:lmao:

Does this count as Ice Fishing??

I've been Salmon fishing here in Puget Sound when it was so cold, windy and snowing that ice formed on the eyes of my fishing rod, my reel, my beard, gloves...Brrrrrrr. But we got a few!
