    Who is this Billy K guy?

    At least he was nice enough to buy a black boat so everyone who can’t catch fish can find him and fish next to him, which I have been guilty of more than once. Other than that, hard to talk shit on someone just cause he outfishes just about everyone on here and cashed in while of us just sat...
