Cold catch


Alex Yeutushok, from Portland, Oregon, pulls a whitefish from a hole in the ice while fishing on Banks Lake with his friends Thursday afternoon. Using salad shrimp as bait, he used a fishfinder and a very thin line almost invisible in the water, noting that the fish are very skeptical if they see the line. The ice is about a foot thick and sings an eerie song as it shifts on the water. Ice fishermen drill holes in the ice, about six inches in diameter, with a large ice auger. Yeutushok learned from felow fishermen that this area was a great place to ice fish, so he and his friends decided to make a weekend of it. - Jacob Wagner photo
