    I gotta get a portable ice house, I still cant feel my pinkie finger dammit..

    That is all

    Well, old Chad, there is not sense going ice fishing unless you have a shanty. Stick your picky in ice water and the feeling will come back. Been there done that.

    I gotta tell this..
    Years back during the Viet-Nam conflict, I was contracted to the Air Force to help in developing the Robert Fulton Recovery system, to rescue downed pilots..
    The method uses a C-130 with a 30 foot Cow-Catcher boom that catches, ties off and cuts a line that goes up to a large balloon and down to the pilot...
    The project went well and every time we got the system working, the Air Force added another task to it...
    Ground pick-up...Whupped it..
    Nite Pick-up...Noooo' problem Just light the lift line and package a 5000 Volt Mallory battery and the pilot can see...Whupped it...
    Water Pick-Up...Go to Point Magu in Cal. and get some Navy seal types to put the dummy in the Lil' raft....Whupped it.
    Water Pick-up at might....Found out real damn quick that the connector Mallory put on the 5000 Volt battery...Not working reaaaaaaal' good in the salt water..Seal team refused to....mess with battery...But..We Whupped it..
    Ice Pick up....Nooo...problem...Fly to Miniot North Dakota and use a frozen Lake....
    As we located the lake in question and made a couple of passes the Ice fisherman were all along the edges in Lil' houses like things...They all were waving and being nice...Till we turned on base leg and started final, Gear down, Full Flaps and Full Reverse on all 4 of the 6000 Horsepower Allisons at the moment of touchdown...Since once the engines were reversed at that power, their was Noooo' visiblity and nose wheel steering was naught, steering was done with assymetrical power of the props..
    After we had stopped, and outboard engines were secured, we could see the damage... We hesitated unloading our IH-Scout with the Recovery packages inside....Most of the .....less secure fishing huts were...not on the lake any longer...Most were now somewhere amongst the tree line...In Little pieces...
    It was amazing to me that once the individuals found out what we were doing...There was absolutely no hard feelings at all.. That's true American spirit...
    After 3 weeks testing on the lake...We Whupped it...
    Ain't "None" of us as smart as "All" of us..

    Why would anyone want to go fishing in the winter and catch what you throw back in the summer? To each his own
    Not what it use to be
