Fishing on Thin Ice

Some innovative fellas from Pueblo/CSprings did not let the 1.5 inches of ice stop them from catching a few rainbows. I ventured to the lake to do a conditions report and found these fellas having fun with Mount Blanca in the scenic background. They had hunted waterfowl at first and then went fishing by using their kayaks to scoot along the thin ice. They punched holes with a shovel. If they broke thru, which they did not, it would still be an easy out as they were not far from shore and had a young fella that could toss them a rope. Sure made my day and way to go fellas.
