Steve Carney: An ice season recap, and a word on the Winter Severity Index

For Carney, the end of the ice-fishing season brings to a close a chapter in his ice-fishing career that was less than stellar. Many other ice anglers would concur. He’s now ready to fish the open border waters in western Minnesota. (Photo courtesy of Steve Carney)

What a weird ice-fishing season this year!
