Do you really believe that Groundhog that much?  We have to think positive...more ice!

Caught some nice gills yesterday. Open water berks co. Hardly worth driving to tusk or chunk to  Stand on sketchy ice & catch nada

 Been walleye hunting the past 2 weeks or so..... got bit-off by a musky or two(haven't seen them since), hooked up with some cats and a few suckers. Finally got a walleye yesterday.... Sadly he was hooked in the tail so had to let him go.


The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
