I went ice fishing today beside Ouno Island in front of The Rosseau, and took several precautionary measures to get there. I wore a pfd vest beneath and a set of ice picks readily accessible in the event I broke through, with all my gear stowed in a sled, its dragging sound a welcome distraction from the terrifying noises the ice was making.
My sled served a double function as a shelter against the cold wind, making my outing a comfortable and pleasant one and even though the fish didn't cooperate the weather did. I didn't catch a lake trout that I hoped to but caught a tan instead. Looming in the background is one of the three sailboathouses that are located on Lake Rosseau.
