A peachy piscatorial start to 2020

 Writer Dave Mull poses with the biggest pike he ever caught. The fish came from Lake of the Woods near Decatur on Monday.  

The fickle winter weather has made ice fishing impossible on area lakes, but that hasn’t kept some of us from fishing. In the first six days of 2020, I got on the water in my kayak three times. If I fish 180 more days this year, I’ll have been on the water in half of this leap year’s 366 days.

It’s good to have goals.
