Cross: Happy (ice-fishing) days are here already


Elsewhere, anglers are reporting limited success on Baker’s Bay on Lake Washington and on Duck Lake for panfish.

With continued cold weather predicted, it won’t be long — possibly this weekend — when area lakes will be sufficiently frozen to safely support vehicle traffic.

Just keep in mind that when it comes to driving a car where just a month ago, boats were floating, safe is a relative term.
