Ice Fishing with the Fish Nerds

Finn and I went ice fishing last weekend. When a free day of no work or hockey presented itself, I asked Finn what he wanted to do (skiing, indoor golf, Dave and Busters….). His answer, no surprise, was fishing. 7 Degrees or not. So, I sent a message to the “Fish Nerds.” We’ve ice fished with Clay and Vinnie four times in the past. They immediately fit him in early the next morning and we made the really easy two-hour drive to Danforth Bay Camp Site to meet them on the lake. While it was definitely cold, they provide the tent with heaters for breaks from the elements…and it really wasn’t that bad. Finn and his buddy caught a total of about 12 fish…including the Crappie that Finn was hoping for. If you want to try ice fishing, but would like some guidance and gear….check these guys out. They actually have a podcast by the same name. They are super patient and spend much of their day helping their charters read the sonar to know exactly how to handle the line and look for fish below the surface. Good stuff….good guys.

Reminiscences From Cape Ann Breeze

The dreary days we have been experiencing led to my sorting through some papers and what-not around here. I came across this souvenir special edition of the Cape Ann Breeze from January 22 1901. It seemed like a good idea to share some of the information and photos included in that edition. This copy was likely purchased in a local antique store (most probably Main St Antiques run by our friend David Cox) and is sprinkled with handwritten notes throughout. These notes lend a few clues to the history of some of the establishments noted within. You may see a few of these notes in the images below. Included are Butman & French’s Department Store on Main & Elm St; John P. Hale & Co.’s Plumbing at 15 Maplewood Ave; J.F. Patten’s Fruit Store at 74 Main St and Bolger & Regan cooking/heating/plumbing store at 153 Main St. I believe this edition may be nearly a final publication as the Cape Ann Breeze became part of today’s Gloucester Daily Times. More info can be found at this link. What a wonderful way to spend a rainy afternoon!
