Ice Fishing - Washington Style

It has been a busy week...taking care of Christmas (like finishing a big quilt that was a gift), visiting family, getting things done around the house while I am home in Washington and just relaxing for a change. No blogging.

While out taking care of some to-do things on my list, the dog needed a quick potty break. Lo and behold, I came across some ice fishermen. Yep, here in Washington they ice fish, too. But you can tell it is a different climate here - no fish houses required like in Minnesota. Hope the fishermen were successful this day!

We don't need no stinkin' fish house!

Good-bye to 2013 today. Let's hope 2014 is a good year for all.


  1. pretty neat that they can be 'open-air' fishing.

  2. Hubby used to ice fish with his friends in VT...brrrrr...too cold, happy New Year!...:)JP

  3. I didn't know it even got that cold in Washington. Well maybe it does in Eastern Washington.
    Glad you are enjoying being at home and missing all the cold and snow here.

  4. It still doesn't look warm enough for me.
    Happy New Year!

  5. Had no idea they did this in my native state. Huh! Happy New Year (I took a holiday break too).

  6. Tough way to catch a fish. I say they're all nuts.

  7. Ice house or not, that looks darn cold! Nice photo of it though...
