John Jackson keeps us updated on all aspects of fishing as our outdoor expert. At this time of year, Johnny wants to head north for fishing. On Lake Mille Lacs on Northern Minnesota, anglers drag fully-equipped, four ton houses onto the lake. Resting on two-foot thick ice, these generated powered $25,000 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 computers are now complimenting ice-fishing. Computers target reefs where fish feed and tapping a global positioning satellite also assists in locating the perfect spot. John will thaw-out upon his return.
