Actually its called bobbing because there isn't usually much ice out by the apostle islands and you are "bobbing" on a thin sheet of ice over 250+ feet of water. Luckily the cold winter has blessed us with 18 inches through most of the islands this year. Scary stuff!
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
