Sarah and I went Ice fishing on Eloika Lake, Saturday. We caught some bass and perch.
Beautiful sunny skies.
The ice was interesting in spots - thin with slush underneath and then thicker below. Probably about 7 inches when it all froze up later in the day.
A bald eagle soared on past our fishing spot. A Fish and wildlife officer told us there is a quarry nearby where they dump roadkill. The eagles eat so much they can't fly. Sounds like an Elk, WA version of Coeur d'alene.
A guy was doing touch and gos on Eloika, in an airplane sporting skis. Not something you see too much of around here.
I am going to get out on the ice as much as possible this winter. Yes sir.
