In Wisconsin ice fishing is a common winter sport. As soon as the ice freezes over ice fishermen can be found out on the ice. As the ice thickens and can support vehicles the fishermen drag ice shacks out on the lake. In the winter a small village can be found on the ice of Lake Menomin. I usually take at least one opportunity to wall through the village taking photos. This year it was particularly challenging to walk on the ice. Normally the ice is covered with snow but this year rained so the ice was very smooth and slippery. You will note that some of the ice houses are jacked up or placed on boards. This is done so the ice houses don’t freeze to the ice on the lake. If they do it makes it very difficult to remove them in the spring.
