    Not only has TONTO adopted him, from the reports I am getting he knows how to cook em as well.
    He cooked the catfish for his Mrs & in-laws and the reviews were impressive!
    TONTO is so proud of his "kid"!
    p.s. He also shows up to check on bank poles!

    congratulations, I am also new to this site and find it to be a great place to spend some time (when I can't get out fishing). There is a wealth of info on this site and a lot of good folks who seem to enjoy sharing this great pastime.
