    • Benjamin Andrus had a scary day up there I was the guy wading up in the red jacket early on... looked across the river and saw 2 guys floating down stream struggling to make it back to shore across the river....Life jackets may have saved them today
    • Catch the Drift I saw them walk up there. Pretty crazy walking around with all the ice right now.
    • Benjamin Andrus I spent like 15 mins and said enough... They were way up top and fell in and drifted a good 500 ft shoulder deep! And continued to fish after... I though I was going to witness a death
    • Michael Andrews Damn Kev you are the man, and those guys who fell in are lucky they didn't drown! Matthew Andrews and I stopped there Sat caught a couple Browns. Thanks again for showing us the ropes! You're a helluva guide!
