Whizz to the Rescue

Last month at Sabattus the day started off with light air. The ice fishermen didn’t feel the need to tie down their tent, and all was fine until the wind began to build. As we were leaving the pits after lunch Jim Gagnon noticed the Red Eskimo doing what Eskimos do, running across the ice downwind. He managed to outrace it before it made the far shore and get his plank around behind it. Boat and tent coasted to a quiet stop.

That was then, but just the day before yesterday at Green Bay, Wisconsin, this amazing section of Lake Michigan was discovered and sailed by a few Nites and a Lockley. Pending snow precluded bigger plans.

They’ve had a tough year so far, so this ice must have felt great. Thanks to Mike Peters for the photo.
