Sports Center Saturday: Fishing

Elizabeth Massmann Pape & Paul Robert Pape, Sept. 1952
My paternal grandfather, Paul Robert Pape (1896-1970), above right, loved to fish, so his family members got to fish, too.  He and his wife, my grandmother Elizabeth Florence Massmann Pape (1908-2000), even planned to fish on their honeymoon in Woodruff, Wisconsin, but, unfortunately, it rained hard the whole time, so they went back to Chicago early.

Above left is my dad, Frederick Henry Pape, at age 10 or 12, around 1939-1941, with the bass and pike he caught over several days at Big Lake, just west of Dairymen's Country Club in north central Wisconsin.
