Yesterday Far Guy, Chance and I tagged along with my brother, Jody ( the one that lives next door) down to his dark house. He was opening up the hole..in preparation for our brother Carey's arrival from Oregon. Carey and his wife arrived safely..he was here maybe five minutes before he was off to the fish house for some late afternoon fishing.
My brother Jody fishing...we were hoping that something would come into the hole while I was sitting there with the camera..no luck.
I hope you enjoyed your glimpse into a Spearing House in Minnesota in the winter. Since I grew up Dark House spearing ..I think that there is no better way to fish. Somehow the danger and the view down into the water has mesmerised me since I was just a little girl. I find it very relaxing. I love listening to the lake "talk" ..it moans and groans within it's icy depths..and to me that is relaxing and entertaining. Dark house fishing is all about patience..and that adrenalin rush when a big ole Northern comes through the hole:)
