Oh Karen, the snow does look so cold...but I think the hope of catching a fish keeps them warm. Your photos are very good, I love the way you use them to tell the story. Thank you for visiting Margie's Crafts and leaving your lovely comment. I would love if you lived closer and would be honoured to have you come over and use my work space. hugs Margie.

I was going to enlighten you if you weren't sure how those fishermen were staying warm. LOL!

I've never been out on the ice for long...way too cold for me. But I do remember taking "shortcuts" across frozen lakes thereby cutting off many miles...in a vehicle. It scares me to think of that now.

Hi Karen, it's snowing here in Maine too! Yup, those guys drag a house out there on the lake, bring a snak, build a fire, have a drink, talk, ...uh, why are we out here? Uh that's right, we're fishing!

Best pictures i have seen in a while!!!

We have a moderate climate so snow and ice are not that common in winter here and I guess no one would make a fire on the ice, but I think the way that those people stay warm would appeal to some people here too! Beautiful photos!

Hi Karen, And here in the south we think that it is cold when it reaches the low 40's. lol. I love your photos of the snow, it is so beautiful. We haven't had snow in years now, but we are always hoping.

Take care and stay warm.

I have fond memories of ice fishing with my dad when I was a kid in Wisconsin. We get a bit of ice here in the mountains of California, but nothing thick enough to walk out on like back east.
