An Ice-Cold Weather Fan


Ice fisherman Nelson Shotts of Ft. Loudon, formerly of northern Fulton County, uses his auger to drill through the 8.5 inches of ice covering Cowans Gap Lake. Quite a few fishermen have been taking advantage of the arctic like weather to fish for trout and blue gills below the ice. Although snow covers most of the ice, a portion has been cleared for ice skaters. Ice fisherman Nelson Shotts of Ft.
