The first fisherman of the 2009-10 Winter Season were spotted by Wayne County Life on the ice of Great Sodus Bay on Wednesday, 30 December 2009. The ice is currently very wind-blown with many bare spots--a pretty inviting scene perhaps for any local ice skaters.

In the photograph can be seen some items typical of the sport of ice fishing, including ice augers, tip-ups, gear sled, and plastic buckets.

    I think it's fun to do an "ice hike" across a section of the Bay and sort of wander over and observe what the Ice People do.

    I'd like to try ice fishing myself, someday.

    Our nephew, Charles, and I tried it once in the early 1980's. I seem to remember getting bait that resembled grubs where Skipper's Landing is located. Of course, it was cold and we didn't catch anything. We haven't tried it again. I guess I prefer to keep moving at these temperatures, although, if I could go along with someone who really knew what to do, it might be different.
