Surprised by thick, dense ice atop our TOAS1 pool three day ago, we discovered that this location behaves more like a lake than a spring by freezing over rather than remaining liquid overwinter. This non-subtle difference made seining the water for last summer’s tagged fish impossible, leaving us standing dumbstruck in waders with dip nets on the solidly frozen surface. Not to be deterred, however, we devised our first-ever vertical fish antenna! Before deploying this beauty, upon reaching our site I fastened my waterproofed iPhone to a weight, set “video” rolling and sent it down the ice hole to see if we could surprise some fish. Although we didn’t see any fish on our video expedition through the ice hole, we did get some interesting shots under ice. Check out the YouTube link below! I can’t wait for tomorrow to return to the TOAS1 pool and download our data! Go Fish!
