Opening Words: Women go forward. Men go fishing.

Plot: It is the first day of trout season, and the men at the lodge immediately hit the lake. However, many of the lodge members are arrested, one by one, for using illegal methods to catch the fish. Even Red finds himself in trouble; a government agent confiscates his own fishing gear, which, apparently, was actually owned by the agent. Eventually, Red clarifies that fish finders are not illegal, so the men search every inch of Possum Lake for the fish. This leads them to the assumption that the government was jamming them, because not one fish was actually spotted in the lake.
