The contest kicked off this morning. Northern Pike caught on any lake can be entered.
The usual suspects are already out on Loon Lake, across Molasses Bay from me. Looks like Ollie will be putting the fisherman to work, as well– a hug pine dropped on the ice in front of his camp.
My participation is to observe and support; I will take them pizza when when we make it this afternoon. My Stabyhouns love ice fishermen; they will supervise the activities on the ice. The following picture of my friend Dick Brazell ice fishing on Loon Lake pretty much sums up why I prefer to watch.
