She is using her new jigging rod tipped with silver and gold spoons with wax worms.

  • Here is a photo of Tom Telesky of Bloomsburg PA ice fishing on the lake near his cabin in Tioga county. A generous soul stopped by and offered to drill some holes with his gas powered auger to save Tom and his son Nick the work of drilling them by hand as the ice was 18 inches thick this day in February. While the fishing was uneventful, it sure was good to get out and experience nature during the winter hibernation in the North.

I snapped the photo with my phone.
