This is a first of sorts for me, my first catch in a Belisle 280 body grip. I bought the traps when they were on sale, and just haven't needed them yet.
Looking at the picture, you're looking downstream, that's the main channel of the river behind the log. There's a little point, just to the left, and beyond the edge of the ice behind me. An otter has been crapping on the point.
I only had 3 traps set, but the water went up, then it got cold and snowed and the river froze over. (I could walk on it.) I didn't catch the otter! But I did end up with a nice mink, on my final check.
A while back Hal asked me to post an avatar, so folks know who I am. This is me.
