They are ice fishing in Madison on Lake Monona in a bay. A friend has been going there daily up to last Monday at least.
Most of that Lake is open water however.
Sorry, no pics.

Also, I saw two robins this morning. That was a surprise.  :o

I don't fish but plenty of people have been ice fishing around here for a month or more. Has been a crazy winter so far though.

I'm hoping to get out with neighbor Joe this winter. These guys go about it different than I do.

Just call me the midget doctor.

No ice fishing here, the water is all open still.

Ice diving is a sport I never had the courage to try. While I love to scuba dive, I just could not bring myself to cut a hole in the ice and go under....it would be beautiful though if that video is any indication.

Yes, there's usually great visibility under the ice. A nice time to dive on some of our shipwrecks.
