Things I’ve learned about ice fishing!

* a pink rod is a must….you might not catch more fish but you will look super cute

*a lot of women and children ice fish…..more than i see during the summer

* sharp blades and the correct size blades on an auger make drilling a hole much easier…..also let the boys do that because their shoulders burn the next day 😂

*you must be willing to pee in a bucket

*you are sitting for long periods of time, so bring some snacks!

Ice fishing

Today i tried ice fishing. John has been ice fishing many times, but this was a new adventure for me. Wow it was really fun. When he asked me if i wanted to go i said “yes but I’m scared!” That feeling didn’t change until i was walking up to the ice. I couldn’t believe how many people were on the ice. There were men, woman and children everywhere. I immediately felt so much better. I also felt so much better when i looked in the hole and saw just how thick the ice actually was. Overall it was an amazing adventure and i knew i was in good hands. I look forward to doing it again. Honestly this is my idea of a fun weekend and i truly enjoy doing outdoor activities with my husband! ‘
