Take it or leave it! William Bergman and Alfred Crawley were on a timber cruising trip north of Mine Center when they decided to camp out for the night. Crawley declared that a lake trout would taste mighty good for supper. Before long he caught a 5 pounder and started to clean the fish. All of a sudden a big great northern pike shot out of the weeds and grabbed the trout right away from Crawley. Good-by supper!
