Ice Fishing on Lake George

by Mathew Weitman

All at once, the fish erupts
from the augur’s hole
& lies panting, and kicking
as it reddens the snow;
nearby, a group of gulls
watches with open mouths.
This is not the reason
that seagulls believe in the paranormal:
an uncanny ability that a fish has
to bring itself back from death
by flapping. It is however,
the reason that seagulls fly.

  1. Offshore fishing charters is amazing year-round, so just choose your favorite month and you’re good to go. However, there are some fish considered to be more prominent during certain times of the year. For starters, there’s the amazing scenery, we’ll get to the fish in just a second. When you go offshore fishing with us, we’ll take you to see beautiful, scenic areas along. Relax as we can make everything through calming inlets and pass stunning beaches along the way.
