Ice fishing at East Harbor

Though the lake is not yet ready for ice fishing and though prospects do not look good with the warming trend this week, on Saturday there were ice fishermen at East Harbor State Park.  Several had portable ice shanties and some braved the cold and sat on buckets.  Some of the fishermen brought families and dogs, making the best of this window of opportunity for ice-fishing.

Redskin Bowlers defeat Huron

The Redskin Boys nosed out Huron by 13 pins, 2973-2960. Sean Black's 254-258 games and 512 series led the Redskins who rolled games of 981-1042 and added 950 in Baker. Huron rolled games of 946-990 and added 1024 in Baker.

"Wow! What a match," said PC Coach Bob Black. "We were up, down, back up, and almost lost it with 4 opens the last Baker games. Huron has a nice team and it's hard to beat them there.  I give our players credit for coming back. Jacob Reed subbed the first game and finished with 5 consecutive strikes which made a difference for us. Sean struck 23 out of 40 shots which we needed."
