‘You should see the one that got away!’
Don’t be fooled by the modest size of these ice-fishing shanties near the village of L’Anse-Saint-Jean, Quebec. Modern-day ice huts are often tricked out with big-screen TVs, underwater cameras, sonar fish-finders, and even bathrooms with hot showers. Some fishermen and women spend entire weekends out on the lake, warm and dry. Here in the Saguenay region of Quebec, they may be fishing for walleye, redfish, cod, or black turbot, which they reel in after drilling a hole in the ice and casting a line in the frigid waters. Brrrr!
