New Project
 
While I know it's very early, I just figured out what my winter ice fishing project is going to be to pass the time. Looks like the only tools required are a chainsaw, small outboard and probably a little vodka! I figure my bob house can sit right in the middle of this...Too funny!!

Do you have to register the ice circle?
And... Do you need a fire extinguisher :D

Here's a natural one:

<div id="fb-root"></div><script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script><div class="fb-video" data-allowfullscreen="1" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/WDAZNews/videos/552468648169459/"><div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore"><blockquote cite="https://www.facebook.com/WDAZNews/videos/552468648169459/"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/WDAZNews/videos/552468648169459/">Ice Circles</a><p>This is an ice circle and it is entirely natural and quite rare. It formed over the weekend on the Sheyenne River about ten miles southwest of Leonard, ND. It is the result of an eddy in the slowly moving river. As the river began to freeze, the eddy froze as a perfect circle. Ice circles are rare because it requires just the right conditions. The river must be at the point of freezing. An eddy must be present. And the current must be slow. If the water is too fast, there is too much turbulence and the eddy is disrupted. If the eddy swirls too slowly, the river just freezes over without the circle.The movies were made by George Loegering of Casselton, ND.John Wheeler</p>Posted by <a href="https://www.facebook.com/WDAZNews">WDAZ News</a> on Monday, November 25, 2013</blockquote></div></div>

You need to 1-up them. Cut a 30' diameter circle, and then another 15' diameter one in the middle of that. Have them rotate in opposite directions.
Call me if you need a hand :)

Add another dimension.

Once you do that, and have the two contra-rotating masses, then drill holes for tip-ups, bait 'em up, and go trolling. :)

Don't worry, if that happens we'll setup a GoFundMe page to raise bail money. We'd have you out in 6 days. 8 tops. Unless it's during derby weekend, then maybe 10 days. Either way, well before spring. Probably.

I can't believe I've never thought of that.
