Twice a year, the State of Maine holds a free fishing weekend where anyone can fish on Maine waterways without needing a fishing license. Grab your gear, because the first of those weekends for 2017 is here.
I went ice fishing yesterday with family and friends, including my 9-year-old son who would fish all day if I let him. It got me wondering as we walked out on Keoka Lake in Waterford, just how thick does ice have to be to be safe? I found the answer.
