RA Ice Fishing Trips

Another first at RA was two one-day ice fishing trips to Lockport.  Mr. Tauber, Mr. Schinkel and Mr. Strang provided 22 students with an experiential learning opportunity that allowed students to independently prepare, catch fish, and survive the elements during ice fishing.  Each day was drastically different in temperature where on March 20 it was 5 above and on March 25 it was 26 below.  What was similar is that on both days every student caught at least one fish.  On the first day, there were 17 students and we arrived around 9:30 am during an ice fog, which limited our vision in the morning.  Brad K, Eric S and his dad worked hard drilling 17+ holes that were around 3 1/2  to 4 feet deep.  Before the fifth hole was drilled Brock N caught the first Sauger of the day and would catch 7 more to lead the way.  Prior to our lunch break we had 20 keepers already and Mr. Schinkel and Mr. Tauber began filleting a few for a lunch appetizer.   Tayler R. persisted right to the end of the day when she finally caught her first fish and the second soon followed after that.  A great day of experiential learning was had by all as the group caught around 40 Sauger.

The second day only saw five students out in the bitter cold, but they were dressed for the weather and able to convince the fish to start biting as Layal H. caught the first fish with Riley H. persisting to the end and finally catching the last one of the day.  In total, this group caught approximately 15 Sauger.

The ice fishing participants included the following students:

Cayden S, Logan B, Riley H, Ben G, Layal H, Brock N, Eric S, Brad K, Joey S, Cora P, Logan M, Eden N, Zach K, Braeden B, Candace K, Brittany L, Tayler R, Kyle G, Kiera S, Lauryn P
