    Not Just a Drum

    Don’t tell my six year-old the fish he had just caught was “just a Drum”. It was way more than that. It was bragging rights. It was his trophy. It was….a fish. Listen, usually I’m the guy that has to get drug in off of the water. Generally I have to be constantly reminded that it’s time to come in. I usually could fish from sun up to sun down, but not on this outing. Last Sat...

I was resistant, at first, to admit that ice-fishing season had come (sort of) and gone. The warm sun on my arms and legs had done enough to convince me though. I had come to the realization that I had...
