Ice Fishing!

This past weekend, my hubby and I were fortunate to have a day off together and we decided to go ice fishing for this first time this season.  While not a huge success, we each caught a fish and had enough for a yummy supper of fresh trout!

Ben drilled the holes for us.  The ice was about 6" thick, but he was able to punch through to the water without any trouble.

I caught the first fish!!  I nice little rainbow trout.

About 90 seconds after I pulled my trout out of the water, Ben was able to pull out an awesome 20" rainbow.  I don't know which is better, first or biggest?

We had a delicious dinner that night! I just added a little butter and lemon with a few herbs and spices and oven roasted the fish.  Couldn't have been easier and they were oh sooo good!

  1. Fresh fish sounds amazing! I am stopping by from "You Like me Friday" blog hop! You can visit me at

  2. Way to go! I would love to have you join me on Thursdays for The HomeAcre Hop!

  3. That sounds awesome! Good for you!!!!

  4. That looks like a lot of fun. I would like to spend some time outdoors like that right now. Need a break from work. I don't have to fish or do anything in particular, just a bit of hiking and some time spent watching the water would work wonders.

    I am sure that you went back home feeling recharged after that- plus you had some fresh fish to eat.

  5. There are many online outlets that sell fresh worms for fishing, and they are delivered as fast as possible so that their freshness can be retained for longer. You just need to store them in some cool place until you go out for fishing.

  6. Perhaps I'm most curious about ice fishing: how do fishes survive under the ice? But among all the bodies of water, I think it has the freshest fishes around. And it's easier to set baits since you just need a hole. Now I'm looking forward for the winter season!
