      Being Sasquatch size has its advantages. Chris gets to wear the life vest and safety line to test the ice thickness. I hold the rope and follow his foot steps.

      way to close the season!
    2. not a good trait for a fisherman imo
    3. i think its pride arty... he'd rather catch less or smaller fish in his own spot in his own way than take some advice or try someone else's idea and maybe ...more catch more or bigger
    4. we both know the answer to that robert!
    5. Definitely a cool looking one! 鳶鳶鳶鳶 Wait a second..... where is your pinky hiding!?????不不不不不
    6. Nice catch Chris. Nothing like a homemade lure
    7. Calico Tog. We would have had the boat limit if he wasn't so hard headed. We passed over some nice bottom and I think he is afraid of losing his anchor. I guess ...more he forgot I am a certified scuba diver as well as an excellent welder. Keep your fingers crossed maybe I can get my boat for next season.
