The Cheater. This contraption tells where the fish are.
First catch. Not an auspicious beginning.
Willing the fish to take the bait.

The final result. I have no idea what kind of fish these are, but presumably someone took them home for dinner.
Personally, I think I'd wait for warmer weather. There is absolutely nothing about sitting in an ice shack all day that appeals to me, even if the fish came out broiled and with a side of new potatoes.
