sweet first pike man!

Do the leaves of trees stay greener, in the autumn, does the colour of the sun, turn crimson white? Does a shadow come between us, in the winter?

That's one big pike. Are you going to put it in the tourney?
if anybody from michigan will help me out with the lakes and stuff up here I'd really appreciate it since I'm new to the area.
