FISHING REPORT

Five years ago I purchased a 75 gallon fish tank from someone selling it on Craigslist. I got a really good deal on it, my son was five at the time, and what kid doesn't want a fish tank!

There was a time when that spot was the only place that I would fish on the lake, but as my boats have gotten bigger and more reliable, I've since ventured out. After fishing a while, my son ...
