I went on a wild finch chase today, and the early morning fog produced those odd-looking light pillars from the artificial lighting (e.g. street lights, buildings). Unfortunately, the finch never showed! Yet, I redeemed the day by crossing something off my bucket list: ice fishing! I went to the Otter on the Water, which is a bar in an ice fishing shack. You drive out to the middle of frozen Otter Tail lake, and in the shack is a stocked bar with holes drilled through the ice. So, I got myself a margarita and babysat a line on a reel attached to the wall. While I was there, there was a nibble on the line, but no fish caught this time.
