Ice fishing Henrys Lake

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving week - I did.  All of our family was home for five days and we had a ball.  Between all the festivities and food, we ice fished Henrys Lake three times.  We were successful every day and saw some beautiful sunsets and sunrises. 
Here is Lion's Head Mountain just northeast of Henrys Lake.



Here is the sunrise on Friday while we were catching fish like mad - just had to take time for the picture.



Results of the fishing was great and we had great times together.



Darn those slippery fish - even below freezing, they are hard to hold on to.



Just three more wild days in Idaho.

Gorgeous mountain shots! But I am not a winter girl (love the snow, but for about 5 minutes...I could never handle ice fishing!).

I'm with Caroline. I'd rather just enjoy your photos.

I wouldn't be too enthusiastic about the ice fishing, but the views were amazing. Great photos, and I'm sure a wonderful time with family.

Beautiful mountain shot! Looks like a nice size catch, but somehow ice fishing just sounds too cold for me.

Bill: Looks like a rainbow trout. As long as they don't hit the hole it is okay to drop them. Great photos.

Wow! The mountains are really beautiful. I keep reading posts about fishing recently and, although I've never been fishing before, I've got a feeling this is something Sunnyboy and I are going to enjoy doing in future...
