Last week, a friend of mine wanted to get his kids out ice fishing on Fish Lake, so I lent him my auger. Although I offered my sled, rods and reels, etc., but he assured me he had everything he needed. His son and daughter are ardent anglers and don’t even blink about the prospect of going out on a frozen lake to catch fish. I was very interested in how they did catching perch, and even more interested in how the ice was holding up. Fish Lake is a very popular spot in the winter, and I know some folks will push the safety of the ice, they are so eager to get a mess of perch. Turns out they had a great time fishing, and I got a good update on the thickness of the ice on Fish Lake. He reported that there was eight inches of solid ice, covered with about six inches of slush, due to the warm days we had last week. He said it looks like we’re set for good ice fishing at Fish Lake through February, as long as we continue to have sub-freezing temperatures at night. I might have to get up there. Nothing like a fresh perch dinner.
