Food Field Trips » Ice Fishing
Share a beautiful day on Lake Rico in East Taunton, MA, with Dick and Sue Viera for catch-and-release ice fishing. These recreational fishermen demonstrate their process of drilling through layers of ice, baiting and setting traps, cooking on a hockey-puck supported grill, and waiting patiently for flags to wave, signaling a catch. Perch and pickerel showed up for the filming that day and we were as excited as Dick and Sue to run like crazy when anyone yelled "FLAG!"
Dick & Sue Viera
Dick and Sue Viera are avid recreational fishermen. When we say avid, we're not kidding. They go quahogging on Cape Cod year-round. Yes, that includes the winter. But we're not complaining because we get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Dick is the real deal - a little rough around the edges but warm as a summer day inside. Sue will bait a hook, filet a fish or band lobster claws like a pro. Any time spent by an ocean, lake, stream, any type of water, together, is their idea of heaven.
