Only the Cool Kids Do It!

Those of us who ice-fish have always known it.  Others are just beginning to figure it out. . . .

Don’t believe me?  This commercial has been running on TV lately:


I know this, they do not come any “cooler” than Matthew McCounghey!

And he’s ice-fishing!

I thought it looked like he could have used more bait on that massive treble hook he was using.

Oh, and he is way too casual when a tipup flag pops.  We all know the proper etiquette is to holler “FLAAAAGGGGG!!!!!!!” at the top of your lungs and then take off running!
