Searching for treasure

By Larry Dablemont
            I am a beachcomber, I reckon. Didn’t know what that was until I saw it in a magazine the other day. About 4 or 5 years ago I was in Canada on Lake of the Woods fishing for Walleye, Bass, Pike, Crappie and Yellow Perch. I’m like that in Canada; the fishing is up and down beneath the boat… no casting. You just find 25 to 30 feet of water and bob a jig or a minnow up and down off the bottom until something grabs it and then you put whatever you can net into the live well and put on a new minnow.

Great gift ideas for the outdoorsman in your life

            I admit it. The recent snow that blanketed the Ozarks, turning it into a winter wonderland, prompted a burst of inspiration about the upcoming Christmas holidays. I do hope we have a white Christmas, too.
