Wildlife managers count the days when snow depth equals or exceeds 15 inches, and the number of days when the temperature drops below zero. The two numbers—days with 15 or more inches or snow, and days below zero—are added together. If the total does not exceed 100, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources considers it a mild winter.

It is to ice fishing what the backpacking tent camper is to the Winnebago. It is, of course, the collapsible tent-like—often called "pop-up"—angling shelter. These styles are constructed of lightweight fabric with a collapsible supporting frame. Many models stow in their own attached sled. Many have integral seating. There are models for the solo angler, for duos, even models that could accommodate 4-6 anglers. Photo Illustration
