Done Safely, Ice Fishing Excellent Now
Ice fishing this time of year isn't without risk. A fellow found that out yesterday when he fell through near Goose Island. Turns out he just got a little wet and cold. Owner of Bob's Bait and Tackle, Scott Gardner says he likes to avoid going for a dip this time of year. So, he stays close to shore, tests the ice with his spud and is smart about where he makes a hole in the first place
It's worth going out, says Gardner; plenty of fish to catch close to shore.
