This week’s frigid temperatures are expected to improve conditions for ice fishing across region.
Luke Soboleski and two friends dragged their equipment-laden sled onto the Misery Bay ice on a recent sunny afternoon, joining about 25 other huts dotting the popular Presque Isle State Park ice-fishing spot.
Soboleski, 19, of McKean, and his friends drilled three holes — one for each fisherman — and then used their auger to carve an additional hole in the ice.
Soboleski lowered an underwater camera into it, and the three men, including Edinboro University of Pennsylvania students Tyler Waltenbaugh, 22, and Hunter Klobucar, 20, settled into a hut to watch the underwater activity on a monitor.
