FISHY PHOTOS: Good day on the ice!

Hunter Hallee, 14, of Rome, had a successful day ice fishing a few weeks ago. Here, he shows off the smallmouth bass he caught while fishing with his maternal grandfather.

Hunter displays a rather large yellow perch he also caught that day, at some undisclosed location in Belgrade. His father, Ryan Hallee, of Rome, exclaimed, “that is the biggest tiger trout I’ve ever seen. Even his trash fish are big.”

FISHY PHOTO: First fish through the ice

Tyler White, son of Nathan and Alison, caught his first fish through the ice on February 14, during the China Four Seasons Club fishing derby. He was hoping to get a big one to enter but, hey, a little one (a pickerel) is just as good. (contributed photo)

While not likely an Erskine Academy student, this guy(?) showed up on the school’s front lawn last week. Apparently, he didn’t get the memo that the snow sculpture contest at Winter Carnival was canceled this year. (photo by Bob Bennett)
