Anyone Wanna Go Ice Fishing?

It sounded like a good idea at the time. I accompanied Richard to the ice fishing derby in Alexandria on the weekend. He was covering it for his paper.


 There were tons of people there, all having a good time, competing for big prizes.



Richard spoke to a couple of fellows from Quebec who were waiting for their big catch.


 Some folks had more than one hole, waiting for a bite.


And somehow, I found a snow-covered hole and stepped right in, up to my thigh. Ick. Ice-water filled boot and freezing pants. And a bruise the size of a dinner plate above my knee. Maybe next winter I'll take up curling...less chance of falling in!

most of those ice holes are just big enough for a smallish foot hard to imagine a whole kid falling in, never heard of someone stepping in though :)
