    "Ice Fishing Study" Fishing on King Island's winter ice was always a great and rewarding women's sport.  Babies were carried along to take in the brisk air and young children played nearby on the ice.  When a Tomcod or Bullhead was caught (every few minutes), they would be laid out to form a circle.  When the circle was closed the woman would pack up and go home...unless she wanted to fish some more, then she'd simply make the circle bigger.   Rie Muņoz
