    What is Ice Fishing?

    Ice fishing is a sport whereby people catch fish with lines and fish hooks (or spears) from an opening in the frozen ice.  It is usually on a lake or pond.  Ice fishermen often sit on stools in the open or in a heated cabin on the ice.

    increase my chances of success. Being a fairly studious type of person, it
    didn’t take me long to devour every book I could get my hands on from the local
    bookstore and the library. Within a week I knew more about Pike than 99.9% of
    the world’s population. And guess what happened on the next fishing trip…”
