. . . for a day, at least. Sunday February 12th was a bitterly cold day, but that did not seem to deter the ice fishermen who came to compete in the annual Lake Fairlee Ice Fishing Derby.
Bob houses populated the lake over the weekend. The competition technically begins at one minute after midnight, and some intrepid souls were hard at work at east by 2:30am. According to the Valley News (LINK), over 200 people participated.
There were multiple winners in each of several categories. See the article above for details.
