Hoping I can feel safe to go fishing this coming weekend. I have new gear that needs to get used! I a good number of folks ice fishing Camp Lake between Becker and St. Cloud. I also saw a couple houses on Big Lake in Big Lake MN. I don't see any reason that small lakes wouldn't be safe, but it is still kinda freaky.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
