|Hand Carved Birthday Present from my Cousin Paul|
Friday my brother Steve and I head to meet Mark Applen, Russ Praught, and his brothers to fish the Johnson Portside Perch Extravaganza. It's a perch contest but rally it turns into a button drawing and they have some really nice prizes. This is usually the last time I get out my wheel house as it's suppose to be 50 on Saturday. I really love staying on the ice and my brother Steve enjoys going with me. Too bad his son Kevin isn't around as I know he'd be with us. Either way with the relatively warm winter and the unusually thin ice, ice out should be quite early this year and provide a fantastic opener.
