If you dress warm ,it ain't too bad. I strap a five gallon bucket and hand auger onto a sled along with my ice poles which are very small fishing rods and head off across the ice assuming it's thick enough.
No shanty or shelter ,just the five gallon bucket to sit on and the great outdoors all around.(oh.and beef jerkey) kept warm under my shirt.
Usually drill anywhere from 15 to 20 holes while searching for the fish.
most of the lakes or ponds I fish ,I am quite familar with where the fish should be.If after three or four hours I have no luck, I beat feet back to the house.

Ice fishing? So today, I got home from work and got stuck in my driveway because it's snowing again...got unstuck, came inside and lay on the floor watching my fish from a different angle dreaming that I'm on a tropical island. I have to agree with Calmwaters. Anything from 7-10 degrees Celsius and sunny is beautiful!

Was actually warm today considering it hit a little over 30*F. This morning was pretty awesome it was foggy all day here. Really foggy in the morning though. Was hoping to get some cool pictures, but nothing amazing. I shot one of my best winter pictures ever on this weekend last year and was hoping it would give me some luck. Will have to see what tomorrow brings. Hot Air Affair this weekend, unfortunately the fog made for no balloon launches today. I'm thinking it will be the same tomorrow as well =/. These are from work.

I forgot this one from last weekend. My dad showing of one of the best places ever to shovel snow. I of course provided no support of this. I was just an observer in case something interesting happened.

I drill a series of holes on my way accross the ice and check for thickness as I go.Anything less than six inches,is not suitable .
I'm afraid I would be a popsicle long before help could arrive,hence my six inch minimum depth which has served me well.
Didn't catch anything this weekend but the weather was a pleasant 35 degrees F which is much warmer than the single digits we have been having and that are due to return this week.
