That is the reason I sold my clam and quit icefishing, A permanent house on a lake I can see a fee. I can't see why on a portable so I said "keep your icefishing, i'll keep my money," that way we both are happy. Now I head south with my boat when I want to fish.
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
