the above is a picture of mcdill pond. it has been drained in an attempt to use the winter to kill the non-native aquatic plants that have taken it over. i understand why it is being done but driving by it still make me a little sad. it will be even worse this winter because whenever you drove by mcdill you could always count on seeing people ice fishing. that want be happening this winter because when you ice fish immediately over dry dirt the results are always abysmal.
