My buddy Ryan and I packed up the truck and headed North up to Upper Red Lake the Saturday after Thanksgiving since we didn't have much or any fishable ice in the Twin Cities Metro. We stayed on shore and walked out in the morning to the 2nd break. We setup our shack in about 10fow. It didn't take long for us to catch our 8 keeper fish and then the fun started! Catching these fish in shallow water (10fow and under) is an absolute riot!
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
