Photos: Taft Lake Ice Fishing Bowl 2013

Nick Thompson, a supervisor for Richfield Recreation, lifts an auger from the ice after drilling a hole for the second-annual Taft Lake Ice Fishing Bowl Saturday, Feb. 2. Richfield started the free event last year in conjunction with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Fishing in the Neighborhood program to promote Taft Lake as a fishery. Volunteers were on hand to teach ice fishing to children and all the necessary equipment was provided. Employees from a nearby Home Depot also helped stage the event. (Sun staff photo by Andrew Wig)
