I already posted of the mishap we had a week ago and the rescue that ensued from our first trip out.

On Sunday the boys and I and a buddy and his wife went to another lake south of here in Saratoga, WY. We had a solid 10-12” of clear ice with a 1” snow cover. We managed 3 trout between 6 of us. Slow fishing for sure but the weather was awesome….inside the ice hut anyway. It was -17 with the windchill outside lol.

Here’s a few pics from the ice ice fishing baby!

That looks fun but cold!
Inside a shelter you literally loose grasp of the outside world around you. Get a few buddies and some brews and it may be a week before you’re found lol.
Like I said it was -17 Sunday with the wind chill. Inside it was low/ mid 50’s. Use a buddy heater and all is well. We had to open the doors to let air in to cool it off it was so warm.
If the winds calm I’ll just set up on the ice with no shelter and back to the wind. I can’t use my underwater camera in the open air as it’s too bright out to see the screen. You can see it on the left in the 2nd to last pic. It’s old school but cool to see the fish swimming around (when you see them swimming around). Really nice to see how your lures action is.

Very cool. I’ve ice fished once but I’ve read enough to know it’s a cool thing to do in the winter barring the almost disaster you recently experienced.
Probably wont drive up to Rawlings for an ice fishing trip though.

Lots of other reasons to drive up this way. Still have late season elk hunts going on!

Winter in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona is my current choice. (y)
That’s good because the freeways have been shut down for 2 days now and don’t look like they will open anytime soon.

I’ll have to check out the dates.
Been putting in for draw hunts since the 70’s for elk in the Wichita Mountains with zero success.
Not sure if I need to put in for more disappointments in another state.

You can get a general tag even.

Today it was a big fat zero. Saw some trout and walleye on the underwater camera but nothing wanted to bite for me anyway. Some of the others had bites but still no fish through the ice for any of us. That’s fishing. At least it was a nice weather day.
