Ice Fishing Safety
People who live in the far northern suburbs know how to keep busy during the winter months, moreso than most of us closer to the city who just bundle up, stay inside and complain about the cold. On my journey yesterday up around Illinois Beach State Park, I saw several groups of ice fisherman, some runners (yikes!), and even a group of bird-watchers checking out the gulls in Winthrop Harbor. (Those shots will be posted tomorrow.)
The one thing I almost never see are skiers, but then I remember there aren't any mountains around here! Whoops.
