Looks like ice fishing transportation but the twine around the headlight suggests the thing is used to spread bales of hay or straw, but for what. Not many livestock on a lake and then I see bales on the lake. If you've ever had horses or cattle you'll note that there were a lot of bales by the amount of twine. Next question is whats that contraption on the back? A self mounted augering system which leads back to ice transportation but again why the twine? Snowmobiles in the background. Hmm, bales for a snowmobile race track, but you'd leave the twine on.

I'm going to guess and say the thing on the back is for loading or cutting ice blocks and the bales are for putting the ice up as an insulator.

I found this pic and just fell in love with it.. my grandpa had almost the same thing, and i remember spending lots of time in it, sleeping cooking and even a portable potty too..I was lucky enough to see so much cause each year my grandpa would pick a new place.. He used to work for Pabst in milw.. so we been places like yellow knife, white horse, nome, prince Edward island, Churchill, all over alasaka and Ca and the us.. Then my grandpa opa as we called him being we are from Germany, went into Fishing shows on TV and did the pro circuit all over.. Thats it... So i thought i would share the photo with you that i found. All it said with the pic is...

Ice Fishing shacks and people (Contact Us Please) the landscape of the frozen water on Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg. Come on out and throw in your hook. Brave the cold or stay cozy warm in a friends fishing shack. A bombadier like this can often be seen on the southern shores of Lake Manitoba as they are still used in commercial fishing operations.

Spent some duck seasons at Delta Marsh on the south end of Lake Manitoba and saw these sitting in many yards. Also saw one on display at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
