Greece, N.Y. – People in our area are braving the cold for a number of reasons. A few individuals we caught up with were venturing out into the bitter temperatures…for the love of ice fishing!

We caught up with the brave fishers on Cranberry Pond in Greece Thursday. They say they’re happy to be back on the ice.

“The last few years, we haven’t had very good ice to even get out on the ice and do any fishing,” said Brian Howell. “So this year, being how cold it is right now, having the ice we have right now, we can get out here and enjoy it.”

Brian told us prime catches from the icy waters this time of year include pike and perch.
