Eskimo Ice Fishing Nome, Alaska

Eskimo Ice Fishing Nome, Alaska between 1900 and 1930

It’s ice fishing season here in Michigan and I thought I would see what interesting old photos there were of ice fishing. This Eskimo’s setup is crude, but appears effective judging by the catch chilling on the ice. I won an ice fishing rod last winter (after the ice had gone out of course) and am itching to try it out.
