Ice fishermen finally get 'iced'


It's taken a while longer than normal, but we finally have sufficient ice on most local waters to fish them safely. I generally wait until there's a solid six inches of the frozen water before venturing out. This way I don't have to worry about hitting a thin spot created by underwater spring holes or inlet currents when nearer shore. With today's ice augers, it doesn't take long to bore a hole, even in ice twice that thick.
