by Doug Leier In 1988 I was a sophomore in high school. I was more than happy to catch a few perch, walleye or northern pike, and sometimes even bullheads. It seems I never had a problem finding the yellow-bellied, numerous-yet-undesirable fish, even when the number of fishing waters was half what it is now. […]

Don’t Forget the Sunscreen!
