If you will look really close, you can see my fishing line going into the water where the ice has been broken away. My husband loves fishing so much, that he has to go even if the lake is frozen over. The ice was thicker on the other side but I refused to go out on it to fish. So we settled for fishing close to the bank on the side that had melted some......I refused to go back with him after that......I will wait until the ice is thawed. He caught five trout yesterday while fishing out on the ice. Guess you know what we're having for supper......fried trout!
