Saturday fun!


Do you like to fish?

Well then come on up to Minnesota!

Today is the big
Fishing Extravaganza
in Brainerd, MN!

We don't fish but this is a BIG thing
around here with all the lakes.

People don't care that it is winter.
They go out on the lake,
yep, walk or drive on the water....
it's frozen of course....
I mean didn't you see my
weather report from yesterday.
Then they drill, yes, drill a hole
in the ice, put the fishing line in
 and sit and wait for the fish!

Look at all the people that do this!


They give away lots of prizes and everyone has fun!

Click below and check it out....


We plan to drive over there
today to see all the fun!

Maybe I'll see you there!

Later -- Remington --
not a fisherman but
like to dress up like one....
-- out!

Let us know how it goes! That looks like a LOT of two-leggers on ice. Don't two-leggers do the silliest things sometimes?

I used to do the ice fishing thing, but now days I prefer the warmth of the house. But it sure bought back some memories! Thanks for sharing.

Ginny said...

Well Rem, you are well dressed for any occasion! At least this is better than the Polar Bear Club people, who go into the icy water and SWIM!! I guess any fish they catch are all flash frozen!! Have fun, stay warm, and come back with this years' pictures!

Sweet Praline said...

Brrrrrrrrr! All that white stuff makes me cold.

jen said...

That looks pretty fun...but COLD:)

Maggie and Mitch said...

All of those hoomans are going to be eating fresh fishie dindins tonight! How cool this is!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Trixie, Lily, and Sammy-Joe said...

Wow, we bet that is surprising to all the fish! Just when they thought they were safe because of the ice... people start drilling! Good luck, fishies! ;)

Sagira said...

WOW...you were not kidding. That is a lot of people!

Suka said...

hey Remington,

Hope you are warmer today! You are in my kind of weather! Being a Malamute I don't like water, and I am very nervous around ice-covered water, so I think I will pass on the ice fishing, but thanks for asking! ;-> Hope you all have a fun time, and win a prize or two!

Suka

p.s. My human, K, sends a big "Thank You" for the info on your camera. Good to know! It takes great photos, and she is very impressed!

Mr Koda MD said...

Too cold on my feetyfeets however it does look very intriguing!

Have fun!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Mom says she will go without her fish before she would go out in that cold:) But it sure looks like a lot of people find it to be a fun time.

Hope you came home with some fish to fry.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Elyse and Riley said...

SquirrelQueen said...

You look so handsome in your fishing outfit Remington.

If ALL of those folks are drilling holes in the ice wouldn't that weaken the ice just a bit? Just wondering!

Cooper and Lola said...

Fishing on the ice...No thank you!! It's way to cold for me! :)
