Saturday morning i set out early and headed to our local bait shop to pick up some minnows, i got me bout 5 dozen. I made it back to the house and rigged up the boat and took off. I got to the lake and found that it was covered in ice, , about 1'' of it. I thought well maybe after i get on down to the big opening in the middle of the lake it would'nt be so bad. But no i had to brake a trail of ice all the way out to the center of the lake just to find that the intire lake was frozen.
