RC, I know this is a little off the topic or totally off the topic, but why aren't you interested in the essay contest to win an icefishing trip with someone from your family? I think you would have a lot of fun doing that, you should really think about it. Just a thought.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
