  1. Clear Lake is a terrific year round destination, ice included. Lake Mille Lacs is a well known Minnesota Lake and I’m sure you have fond memories.

  2. The love and miss the look of frozen lakes. Since moving to UK I don’t see much of it that reminds me of home in Minnesota 🙁 I miss ice fishing and snowmobiling on Lake Mille Lacs! Clear Lake looks like a blast in summer or Winter, I think you have to be a good old Midwesterner to appreciate these things, everyone else thinks were nuts for loving the ice 🙂
