Bismarck, North Dakota, Winter Solstice Fishing


The recent Winter Solstice found my family and I headed east toward my parents’ home in Chicago.

On the way into Bismarck, we spied the frozen Sweetbriar Lake, upon which several people were standing hunched expectantly over holes in the ice.

I went back to the lake at about sunset and met these guys who had made plans to fish well into one of the longest nights of the year, hoping to hook walleyes.

I hope they had fun. I headed back to the hotel.
