January 11, 2015 - Lake Pelham

Went over to Lake Pelham to see what the fishing prospects might be.  They were nonexistant; the lake was frozen over with 1.5-2 inch thick ice,, measured at the floating dock off of Virginia Avenue.

When I was younger, there was a winter when part of South Holston Lake froze over, and I remember that we threw rocks out onto the ice, out of curiosity to see what would happen, and the impact of a rock onto the ice makes a strange noise, sort of a mix of a rubber ball "boing" and ray gun "pew." In the event that you've never heard the noise and are wondering what hallucination this is, I recorded a video:

Since I've got nothing going on until it thaws, maybe I'll make good on my promise to myself to get around to servicing my tackle.
