He’s Jigging! Season’s First Ice Fisherman

Taken today from the state boat ramp in Sutton, we sighted a first ice fisherman of the season on Manchaug Pond!

Also a report came in this morning of 0 degree F temperatures over on the Ledgestone side of the lake. Good for ice-making!

As the ice forms, the lake is also making its loud “whale” sounds!
