This poor guy…he is out on the ice in temperatures around 10 but with wind gusts up to about 25mph so the chill factor has to be well below zero.
I saw him make one hole to ice fish, set up his trap, then moved to make another. He tried and pulled on that puppy for about 5 minutes and the auger would not start. 🙁
Right after I took this shot, he “threw” down the auger. Kudos to him for even being out there. Hope he catches something ❗
By the way, even though there is about 2 feet of ice out there, our guys fishing off our shoreline have done very well for Brookies.
