    Thats one tough dude...standing in the snow with nothing on but a tee shirt. Nice fish too.

    That hole of water has some huge gills along the far side too.

    there are some nice blues there too, last year we seen a 22#er caught and he was taking it home too. only thing i hate a bout powerton is the scum that fill the banks at the hot water discharge with dead fish they feel they can toss on the banks. they need an under cover conservation with a fat ticket book stationed there. and wait till they leave and hit them with a seperate fine for each one they tossed out.:angry:
