Ice Fishing in North Bay

The previous weekend we managed to make the expedition from Toronto to North Bay (a distance of about  350 km north) to do some ice fishing.  Compared to the balmy winter conditions in Toronto it actually felt like a normal Canadian winter in North Bay.  There was about 10cm of snow on the ground and the ice on lake Nipissing was about 70cm thick.

What follows are a few photos I was able to snap during our Ice Fishing expedition.

Lots of snow at our destination - notice the snowcat behind the office.

Down to the work at hand - ice fishing!

Patiently waiting for a bite..........
