Ice fishing isn't my favorite winter activity. I much prefer downhill skiing, xc skiing, snow shoeing, winter camping, and not least: hot drinks by the fire followed by warm romps in the bed.
I don't always go ice fishing, but when I do, I rarely remember it.
It's basically an excuse to have a winter excursion with lots of gear and lots of beer. Drill some holes, set some tip-ups, drop some bait, and start chugging.
I also do it w/ the fam (we have two young kids) once or twice a winter. That's a completely different type of ice fishing - usually with many families. The kid mayhem on top of the ice often ensures we catch no fish.
