Check out my fishing hole!!!
Here is the beautifully shaped fishing hole that I managed to create using an auger. It took me quite a while to finally break through the ice (a whole five inches - heehee). What was really great was that I could actually see the bottom of the harbour through the hole - it was so clear I could actually see fish. I was trying out a beautiful hand carved fishing tool traditionally used throughout Cape Breton. I braved the wind and freezing cold temps for about 1 1/2 hours before deciding that I simply couldn't take the cold climate any longer.
