Ice-Fishing in Washington
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.

“After many unsuccessful ice fishing expeditions, I was asking myself a lot
of questions. It seemed unusual at the time, but I one day wondered if the
rules for hunting would somehow help with ice Fishing. The rules were obvious

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…”
