Ice Fishing In April…


There is a lot of interesting things to look at when you’re ice fishing. See the darker ice in this picture? If you just walk across it you’d think it’s just regular ice and if you walk the way you normally walk you’d leave no tracks. However, if you twist your foot a little as you walk, you make the tracks that you see above.


Look at those tracks a little closer and they are so cool!


Look even closer and you see that the ice broke into little tubes! Weird and fascinating!!!


Then as I was walking I saw this…it looks like it came from another world…


See how each stalk had it’s own tunnel in the ice? Cool!

It was the same with all the flotsam and jetsam on the lake.


You look at a scene like this and think there isn’t much to see…well, look closer! We had a great time ice fishing. It was a balmy 50 degrees and the wind was calm. It is really peaceful…(and there was still a good foot of ice on the lake…)

I didn’t get any crafting done this weekend, and I’m not sad. I spent a lot of time with family and friends instead.

Happy Crafting!!!

Those pictures are so cool. It's not something I'll see since even though I live up here, ice fishing is NOT my favorite past time, heck it's not even on my list of 1000 to do. But I love your pictures Kim. Thank you for sharing.
I'll talk to you shortly. Just got breakfast done and dishes going. Enjoy your quiet since tomorrow your world will be different. :o)
God bless you my friend.
