    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I am trying to figure out just how desperate for food I would have to be to subject myself to ice fishing.

    I have actually done it. I wasn't wrapped in a plasic bag and I doubt it was 22 below either. I didn't catch a darn thing and I didn't have one of those cool wooden port-a-pot looking shelters like in Grumpy Old Men. I shivered, bitched, got my glove caught in the reel, bitched some more and sat there wishing my buddy would call it quits so I didn't look like the wimp. The beer did stay cold though, so I had that going for me.

    Ahhhh. I understand now. Perhaps if I spent the time meditating with the Rev. Jack D. while ice fishing it would make more sense.

    At the risk of fulfilling a Canadian stereotype, I enjoy ice fishing- as long as the fish are biting and my fingers and toes don't get cold. I'll admit it takes some getting used to though.

    Some of the best fishing I've ever had was at a lake where a warm water infllow kept the ice off a small bay. Apparently this made the water just the right temperature for pike- really big ones. We put whole sardines on the hook and caught some absolute monsters on a regular basis.
