    lazy picks having pre-drilled holes. How it is supposed to work from my experience is;

    1. lug a sled with a shit load of kit into the middle of the lake
    2. hand drill a hole through a meter of ice & drop in a line
    3. have a beer cos you got so hot with the drilling
    4. shovel snow to build a snow wall to keep the wind off cos it is getting a bit cold
    5. have a beer cos you got hot with the snow shoveling
    6. build the snow wall higher
    7. repeat for 7 hours

    ps if a fish comes along it is a complete shock to everybody
