Ice fishermen have returned to some Chicago harbors, even though it might be a little early to be standing on the not-so-thick ice.
Subzero is tough for most except for those willing to wait out the fish on Northern Illinois’ Chain O’Lakes.

They came for the ice, and the fish. What some fishermen found was fire, and a sleeping family.
