HOUGHTON LAKE FISHING TRIP


Four of 10 youths from the Nokomis Challenge Center at Houghton Lake check out a tip-up during an ice fishing trip to Houghton Lake Friday. The youths, who had been taught fishing skills through a Michigan State University Extension program called "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" were invited by Lyman Foster of Lyman's on the Lake bait shop, who provided ice shanties, heaters and transportation onto the lake. The students had already practiced their fishing skills on Pup Lake, located on the Nokomis grounds, and spent the morning chasing tip-up flags and catching northern pike. Also pictured are Nokomis teachers Robert Lockhart (holding ice skimmer) and Mike Bolen (right) and Foster, who said he hopes the activity will become an annual event.
