The boats are running

The boats started to run! However there is still ice around. Some guys from Middle Bass were bucket fishing yesterday on the ice near Rattle and just a few feet away from them was a boat fishing. That would have made a cool photo.

On short final to runway 10 at Middla Bass, I didn't see a boat, but I did see a person ice fishing on that same area your talking about. I couldn't believe he was out there!

That area is the Middle Bass ice fishing hole. The ice gets locked in the "circle" of PIB, MB, Rattle and Green so normally people can fish late into the season.
A lot of the people on the upper islands have hovercrafts so they can still fish and get around while the ice is in the between stage of too thick to boat, not safe enough to 4-wheel on. Some times they ride around in a group...Hells Angels the island way. In the summer you see the dingy beach full of rafts and wave runners and then in the early spring you see it full of hovercrafts. Kind of a funny thing to see.
