Robin Batenchuk, one of only two women from the Poplar River First Nation who skipper their own boats in the commerical walleye fishery. Twenty-three years old, Robin is also the youngest skipper in the Poplar River fleet. Here she's dressing fish she caught earlier the same day. She's also removing and setting aside cheeks--a delicacy--for her grandfather. June 15, 2011.
