Default Making lemonade from lemons

While many are complaining about the cold, we take advantage of it. I went ice fishing with my son in law yesterday at Echo Lake. He caught a pan fry size rainbow, I only got a few nibbles. But a bad day fishing is still better than a good day working. It was right around the freezing mark so not a bad day.

I've been going to this lake for decades but the snow highlighted something I hadn't noticed before. The prominence to the left of center in two of the photos looks very much like a lava dome and the slightly more than 180* rim around it looks like the rim of a caldera. I think there is a good chance that this is a dormant volcano that blew one side out much like Mt Ranier did. Only a few kms away is Canel's Hump and it's reported to be an extinct volcano too although I would call it more of a lava dome so it is a possibility. https://www.kelownanow.com/columns/h...Hump_in_Lumby/

I use to go fishing two to three times a week. I lived less than five miles form two lakes so it was easy to come home from work hook up the boat and fish to 10:00 or 11:00. Ahhh those were the good ole days. I have not been ice fishing but have fished when it was cold cold enough to freeze water on the line.

You need a fish shanty. That or a portable fishing shelter, to break the wind at least, but preferably with a heater. Wind chill on a lake is horrible. Been a really long time since I was ice fishing.

My son in law has an ice fishing shelter and a small heater for it Theo but it wasn't cold enough to need it.

Chuck, the Texas Parks and Wildlife has banned fishing in a few spots along the Texas Gulf Coast. The reason being, there aren't that many deep holes and the fish congregate in those holes to stay warm. Sorta like shooting fish in a barrel.

And, I still recall the deep freeze in 1983. It killed a lot of Redfish (Red Drum). They got caught off guard and the freeze killed them.

I remember 1983 as well, Mike, because the Red River froze bank to bank between Shreveport and Bossier City. People were walking out on it, tripods and cameras firmly planted, not sure if anyone walked across bank to bank, though. It wasn't as scenic as Chuck's shots in Canada, either. To my best recollection, nobody was ice fishing on it.
