When passion trumps common sense

A week ago folks were still ice-fishing on Colpoy's Bay.

A week later, the ice is gone but folks are still fishing. Just off the Old Mill Road I saw four guys in what couldn't have been more than a twelve foot aluminum boat. Full size guys.

That twelve footer was riding low in the water. Couldn't have been more than four inches of freeboard between those fishermen and an emergency response team. Not a life-jacket in sight.

I know it's great to be first on the water after a long hard winter, but this was a headline waiting to happen.
