Not if you build a toasty, warm ice shack, with a half floor. You just sit on the bench with your freinds, drink your favorite beverage (and yes, that would be milk for me.), tell tall tales, and wait for the fish to bite, then pull them up through the holes. You only have to take the ice off of the outside holes when you go out to check your tip-ups.

I use the egg shell halves to separate egg whites. I used to ice-fish, but quit when I went out to fish at the impoundment on Bald Eagle Creek in Pennsylvania one evening. It created a very large lake. Cut a hole in the ice and looked in...the ice was about five feet above the water. They had drawn water off to break the ice and relieve pressure on the dam. It just hadn't dropped...yet.

at the end of your stories, I generally laugh and want to say 'gadzooks'!

I would have loved to see the look on your face when you discovered that the ice was suspended 5 feet above the water. I know that I would have been very nervous on that ice, and probably would have belly crawled back to the shore. It just sounds like a spooky situation to me.

How thick was the ice, and, does it really matter?

I can blow and thump a bass groove with a milk jug. BT & FZ, the boingo section's yours if you want to join. Anyone else is welcome, just name the kitchen implement that's your instrument. I can get us some gigs at several youtube channels. The band splits payment in chocolate chip cookies. I also need suggestions for naming the band.

Ice was about a foot thick, maybe. Maybe a little less. It began to break up and drop two or three days later.

I think one person mentioned the old way, the chef like skills that I thought we all learned. You crack the shell in half over a bowl, let the white drain out of half while holding the yolk in the other half (along with some white), then you pour the yolk into the empty half and dump the white in the dish, then back and forth a few more times until an empty shell holds the unbroken yolk.

I can't imagine I was the only person to learn this. You all know this, right?

Yes, but I find that the shell sometimes pokes a hole in the yolk. I like use my fingers.
