In the interest of full disclosure, I was not the one ice fishing on this cold Sunday morning. But others heartier than me were on Pewaukee Lake over the weekend to do just that. I was in the area for brunch with friends and took my camera since it is always such a pretty scene, and I knew I could get some good photos. You can see what the lake looks like below:
I was not expecting to see ice fishermen, not knowing if the lake was frozen enough to be stable. But as I was standing on the shore I saw two men in an all-terrain vehicle riding across the river and park on the bank closer to me. I guess the lake was definitely stable enough since one of the men needed a drill to break through the ice:
Unfortunately (or fortunately since my fingers were starting to freeze), I had to go inside for brunch so I didn't see if they caught anything. But if an endurance test was what these fishermen were going for, I'm sure they had a great time!
