Robert Halsey and Scott Rush enjoy fishing through the ice on Brest Bay, Lake Erie. Fisherman walk or drive ATVs nearly 1.5 miles on the ice to set up their shanties in the walleye-rich region. "Last February we took out boat out on the lake right here. We didn't have any ice," says Rush. "Lake Erie went from nearly ice-free around Christmas to almost completely ice covered in about two weeks. This was thanks to the coldest late-December to early-January stretch on record in many Great Lakes locations. Great Lakes ice cover is already more extensive than the peak from last winter."
