Ice Fishing 2, originally uploaded by scootersbabygirl.

I was driving around yesterday running errands and I was glad that I had my camera in the car. A few times I’ve seen ice fishers out on the large lake that’s near us – here’s the thing: it’s too early! The ice hasn’t had enough time to freeze yet! in many places, there is still water showing through the ice!

These guys, however, don’t care. They walk out, tiptoeing in many cases, hoping that the ice is strong enough to hold them. Yesterday Babygirl and I caught two of them out on the ice – and this is why I love the telephoto lens! I was able to sit in the car and to get some shots of the crazy ice fishers who are risking their lives to get a bite.

And they say that those guys who are on Deadliest Catch are doing dangerous things. These guys, however, are absolutely stupid.

    That’s whacked. I always thought ice fishing was a little nuts anyway – walk out on the ice and then DRILL A HOLE right below where you’re standing. Uh? But, that is completely crazy to do it now.

    It’s like the way that every winter at least one snowmobiler falls through the ice because they try to cross a river too early or too late in the season ,or right after a freakish warm spell.
