Fish House Friday

Macy’s Schmacy’s. Black Friday. Crack Friday. In these parts, the after-holiday tradition is the Aitkin Fish House Parade, held every Friday after Thanksgiving. This year, of course, was no different.

The event, theoretically, marks the beginning of the ice-fishing season, though there’s very little ice on Mille Lacs Lake and environs.

  • Thanks, Bob.

    Far more civilized than “Black Friday”

    Last year was far colder and snowier. This season seems delayed, but I am not so foolish as to think it will never come

    Do you know who won the soup contest?

    “TO many fish in the pail? YOUR going to jail?”

    Please, tell me that isn’t actually affiliated with the Minnesota DNR. /facepalm

    Great stuff.

    Hopefully, the float makers justifiable pride in their great creativity overrides any silly spelling oops embarrassment.

    I’ll trade good spellers for creative fishermen any day of the week.
