Five days a week, a couple of guys get paid to gill net lake trout out of Quartz Lake . . .
The skull and crossbones hanging from the light pole on the back of the 18-foot fishing boat has worn to tatters.
So has the population of lake trout in Quartz Lake.
Twice a day, Kevin Perkins and Carter Fredenberg string 1,800 feet of gill net through the waters of Juvi Bay – their name for the most productive summertime corner of this 869-acre Glacier National Park lake where juvenile lake trout linger. They come to pillage. The name of their pirate boat is unprintable.
