Joseph Gonzalez writes: Here are my three friends,(Jared Scheler, Kanwit "Pocky" Tamnee, Nuttawat "Pup" Tamnee) the middle and the one on the right are my friends that moved here from Thailand and they have never seen a lake frozen over or caught a fish. We went to Boysen on December 15 and was a scary but fun time. The ice wasn't even 3 inches thick but they tested their luck and they all ended up catching their first fish ice fishing.

Here is a couple of pic's of a 20 pound catfish caught this spring.
