I went out to Teal lake today.I looked out from the parking lot and saw a sight i didn't expect! ICE!I went down to investigate and saw that it was about a half inch thick and only out about 25yrds from shore.I sat and thought "is it worth it"?I told myself that it was and whats the differance between fishing and duck hunting.Ive broke lots and lots of ice while duck hunting,why not fishing? Went to the truck and got one of my oars and made a path as far as i could from the dock.Got all my gear and went for it!I had to use one of my oars to pull my self a foot a t a time the last 20 feet breaking the ice as i drug my toon up on the ice to break it! You ask" was it all worth it"? Yes it was! I had 2 fish to hand in about an hour and the sun was shining bright!All in all a great day! Any of you done this before?
