That crack reminds me of about 15 years back when the back end of our Dodge Aries broke through Lake Simcoe. One of the back wheels froze to the axle and it took almost 50 km of highway driving before it broke loose again.

Funny thing about that trip. A number of people said you'll get stuck, the Ford Escape wont make it. Guess what, I made it in and out.
As far as catching fish, we were fishing for Perch and did catch em. And they tasted great.
That was Lake Manitoba we went to.

This weekend we are going to Lake Winnipeg for big Walleyes. We will be be going 3 or 4 KM out on the lake providing we can get over the pressure ridge. I will post pics again.

OK embarresed now, took the kids to a small pond with stocked trout and couldn't catch a thing, even tho they were jumping all over the place! and you can pull frozen fish sticks out of a lake! :blush:

I guess an Escape ON ice is better than one IN ice!

I enjoy ice fishing too. Although I haven't driven onto the lake in years. I just have a buddy drag my shanty out on to the ice with his snowmobile. Nothing beats Perch in the winter. Especially if they are big enough to fillet.
