The Start to the Winter 2008
A New Year is upon us and so too is another ice fishing season. My first trip of the season was in late December on the hard waters of Cook's Bay where yellow perch would be the target species. As I arrived shortly after sunup I was surprised to see hundreds of anxious ice anglers already there before me. Most were within a kilometer from shore and huddled over their holes carefully watching their rods, set in holders, for any sign of a strike.
