RE: Ice fishing alone?
I usually go alone, but go places where others are fishing. Sometimes everyone else leaves, and I stay. Other times I arrive, no one else around and I stay and fish anyway. I think it's foolhardy, but do it anyway. My advice would be, don't fish alone. I heard a story about a fellow fishing alone, falling and being injured while fishing at Glendale last year. He laid there for a quite some time before someone came to his rescue.
How did the person who made the first clock know what time it was??
