Full Moon Fishing

"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."
- Henry David Thoreau

Sometimes... well, most times a good fishing trip can be had without actually catching that many fish. And this is what brings us together a lot of times for ice fishing. Typically, people don't understand why we spend hours and hours on the frozen waters. Yes, we are fishing. But there is so much more to it than that. It's a time for us. For us to be together, unwind and pass the coldest months of the year with what we call "fishing."

Photo Notes: Most photos were taken during the middle of the night with little or no light. Long shutter speeds were used to capture the ambient light provided from the moon.


  1. Finally you admit that it is a weekly mancation!

  2. Nice pics. Now can you help me get my truck off the beach?
