I grew up fishing for cats in MD and Flounder in DE. I didn't fish much in my middle/high school years, but a few years after getting stationed ...more in Minot, ND I picked fishing back up. I absolutely LOVE ice fishing and the availability of fishing spots in and around Minot were amazing. I got out and moved to North Texas, and now fish a couple of the lakes here. It's a different fishing world here, but I'm learning.
