    Re: sunrise observation.

    Antoine, I got -9' using Geoffreys LTA (old table with log-cos log-sin at 1' resolution), Quite OK in my opinion considering sunrise over ice...

    The fish was what we call "Sik" (pronounsed almost like seek), sci-name is Coregonus maxillari.
    That particular fish was not large, but enough to require my attention for a few moments, weighed in at something like 0.7kg.
    And yes it will feed us today.
    I only catch what we can eat next few days, catching more just kills of long term catches and force me to eat "old" fish, if care is taken to hold population strong catching fresh is more rewarding in several ways.
    Actually sitting on the ice just watching sun rise over ice would be quite an experience in it self, quiet enough to hear flight of a raven 100m away and the white snow tinged by sun, first greenish blue of first twilight then slowly migrating to red... let us just say it was well worth getting up at 05:15.
