Some of my family and friends have been going to Lake of The Woods near Baudette, MN for several years now on ice fishing trips.  I've been invited in the past, but due to conflicting schedules it hadn't worked out for me to go until this last weekend.   So I was a "first timer" and had never been up there before.  I didn't know what to expect, and it's pretty crazy!
