Wayne Sheridan reports: Is this polar vortex ever going to end? We have enough of this winter already. Some friends went fishing on Lake Simcoe last weekend, along with a couple of thousand people, but the fishing was very slow. During cold snaps, like we have, the fish head deep and shut down. Their metabolism is greatly reduced. In these cold temperatures, remember to dress appropriately for the weather and always check projected weather conditions before heading out. Stay warm!
