I really LOVE fishing. It relaxes me, brings me to lovely settings at dawn and recharges my soul.

That said I was never able to equate ice fishing with normal fishing. My lake would become a small city of ice fishing huts during St. Paul Winter Carnival. The Blue Angels even landed on skis one year. It was an EVENT.

It was also darn cold in the chill of a pre-Thinsulate, GoreTex, & Goosedown Minnesota morning. Out of all the things I've done on that lake ice fishing was the only disappointment.

In retrospect I've concluded that ice fishing is the frozen man cave of the North where men can bond with little concern about female witnesses.

Heard about the Pro Ice Fishing League? You have got to check out the Minnesota Fighting Ticks, a team in the IPIFL (Indoor Professional Ice Fishing League). The "Ticks" were the 1998 League Champions. Way to go Ticks!!!

When you visit the Ticks page, be sure to listen to the exciting "sudden death fish out", during which they won the 1998 season championship.

It was built in the late 1920's by the family that built Vikingsholm which is a state park now and just a few hundred yards from where I was taking the picture of the bay.

Heres another shot of the island that you can better see the tea house.

A bit difficult for sailboats to enter this bay depending on the level of the lake. The mouth of the bay is very shallow. Only several feet deep in most places. I've been there in a power boat and you definately need to stay between the marker bouys to keep from striking the prop. Once you get through the mouth of the bay it does get deep again. I've seen sail boats in this bay but with sails down, keel up, and powered by motor until they get back into the lake.

Could you tell what sort of fabric is stretched over the dome frame?
