Some people say ice fishing is the best fishing.
No sunburns, no live well, fish as long as you want and just drive away. You can even take the comforts of home with you: tv anyone?
Ironically some of the comforts may be better, but so is the fishing itself. Fish with more lines, see the fish better on the view finder, and have access to hot spots to fish without a boat. Anyone can ice fish. You don’t need expensive equipment like a boat. Though, some like to go all out with their shanties.
