Great Outdoors: An Ice-Fishing Blast
By John Campbell, Reporter
KEOKUK COUNTY, Iowa -- "My wife says ice fishing is just another disease," Tom Monroe of Sigourney said. "And I have it."
Tom and some equally sick buddies were having a great time on some Keokuk County ponds over the weekend. Travis Krousie of Fairfax caught a nice blue gill, and Jim Standiford of Laporte City also did well.
The good bites seemed to start when Southwest winds seemed to change to Northwest. A front was moving through.
Some might call the ice fishers crazy, but for these gentleman, their annual ice fishing blast was just that: A blast.
