    Saw this on FB yesterday, looks like it was taken on a lake about an hour and a half north of us here. Every year, there has to be one of these guys.

    Maybe he was trying to make a boat house out of it lmao.
    I don’t know what people are thinking about sometimes.
    Crazy. Good luck trying to get insurance involved I would imagine

    I’m thinking ice fishing driven by inebriation.

    Normally, we don’t venture out onto the ice until early to mid January when there is a foot or more of ice on the lakes. By the end of winter the ice will be 3 feet or more thick.

    How would one cut a hole in three feet thick ice to fish? Are there special tools for that?

    @Miamicuse, you don’t cut a hole into the ice, you drill it.
    With an ice auger.

    @miamicuse Think gas powered post hole digger with a very sharp bit. There is one in the pic on the ice just in front on the shack.

    Thanks guys. I have no idea having never experienced ice fishing.

    I thought you use some sort of a handheld Bosch laser beam and carve a circle on the ice or sink a heated pipe into it so it melts as you lower it lol.

    Lol but I don’t understand you drill a hole and sink your line in, the hole is small right? Like two inches? So what if a large fish took the bait it won’t fit through the small hole, what then? Or you have to make a pretty big hole like 10″+?

    Not to be gross if you have to go in the middle of the ice do you … Ummm … piss into the hole you are fishing out of? Or they have facilities all over the lake? thanks

    You can go up to 8″ hole.
    Which is kind of big for a fish.
    We don’t fish great white sharks here 😀

    People use ice augers to drill a hole thru the ice. Most common ice augers are manual and gas powered augers. I believe the augers are 6 to 8 inches size.

    I think it might be time to repost this video just to clarify a couple of points.

    That’s crazy…but that hole is very big to fit a human, that wasn’t drilled with an auger lol.

    Yeah, that was staged for sure but it’s good for a laugh.

    Actually, I have fished on the St’Lawrence, too. Very different culture there compared to Northern Ontario. They generally have a large central hole in the centre of the shack; about 2 feet square and no windows at all. Amazing how bright it is under the ice, you can watch your bait easily and see a strike as it happens.

    Fishing up north is in larger huts with small (8 – 10″) holes and lots of windows. Better for socializing with others on the ice but not as good IMO for fishing. The social aspect is probably the best part of ice fishing. Communities of 100 or more shacks can develop in the couple of month ice fishing season. Raodways are maintained on the ice for the fishermen usually from a boat launch or other access. Party!
