Judging from the above picture, Mrs. Haines doesn't relish the job. Mr. Haines caught the pike in Whitmore Lake yesterday morning, as the inland fishing season opened.

MINNOWS FOR BAIT: Charlevoix is a supply center for fishermen who want bait for ice fishing. This picture was taken on the end of a dock, but most of the minnows are caught at feeding houses. These stand over the ice, and the minnows are attracted by food which is placed in the water.
