Pat Shingleton: "A Hole in the Ice!"
With warmer weather hopefully you'll be returning to the coast for fishing. Great Lakes locations have enjoyed a great season for ice fishing. On Lake Mille Lacs in Northern Minnesota, anglers drag fully-equipped, four ton houses onto the lake. Resting on two-foot thick ice, these generator powered $20,000 homes include carpet, parquet floors, microwaves, surround-sound, and satellite hook-ups. After drilling the hole, underwater cameras spot fish. Before technology, random "house-drops" couldn't guarantee a good catch, however, as noted in a previous column, computers are now complimenting ice fishing. Computers target reefs where fish feed and tapping a global positioning satellite also targets the best spot to hook-em in the cold.
