Ice fishing is alive and well in 2022; nearly the perfect sport for the times! It’s outdoors, you can set up a private shelter and socialize with people whose vaccine status match yours.* Drink your favorite beverages and eat salty snacks as you wait for the fish to bite.
*Irony, because we have friends and family on both sides of the issue.
Where we live in Madison, Wisconsin, the end of December and beginning of January the weather is constantly below 0*C. The top layer of the lakes freeze solid enough that people walk, skate, ski and fish on them. Some people even drive on them…
Right next to the ice fishing scene of the earlier photos is a building that looks sadly underutilized this afternoon. Madison Boats is where a friend and I went to rent a canoe last summer. The shutters were closed today. Maybe they should sell bait and snacks this time of year?
Canoe anyone? Sorry, nowhere to paddle at the moment.
Tell you a secret, maybe you won’t believe it…we Midwesterners walk on water. (Ok, just in winter.) ¡Olé! –Rebecca
