The Week in Photos for Jan. 9: Winter has gotten off to a slow start, but good ice fishing can still be had on small lakes and ponds, as well as many shallow, protected embayments on Lake Champlain. Craig Smith of Burlington iced this huge pike Jan. 7 while fishing outer Mallets Bay. It was 41-1/2 inches long, had a 21-inch girth and weighed 22.53 pounds, making it the third heaviest pike from Lake Champlain in the Vermont trophy fish records program, which goes back to 1969. Smith caught the big pike on a large shiner in less than two feet of water. (Photo courtesy of Dale Parker)
