Winter on Lake Erie
I thought it was time to get everyone in a wintery mood so I am posting old page from Collier's Magazine, dated March 3, 1896. Okay, its a little bit early for ice fishing, but still, it does have get one one in the mood for winter on Lake Erie.
We have indeed had a hodgepodge of winter weather so far, with snow, blustery winds, thawing, a few really cold days. For those longing for some ice fishing, so long as winds blow across the lake there's not much chance of a decent layer of ice forming. However, winter is still young. And for those ice fishing aficionados out there, I'll leave you with this old pic of a still-popular sport.
