For many areas of the country, it has been a strange winter. Many lakes and rivers had begun opening up several weeks ago due to warmer weather and then have iced up again with colder temperatures. Please take extra precautions when going out on the ice anymore this winter season. Pay very close attention to any subtle sounds of ice cracking.
Now granted there are many lakes that are still very much frozen and haven't yet thawed at all. Go out and enjoy the ice! If you have any pictures of you ice-fishing trip, we would love to see them!
