Well it is that time of year when the ice is a little unstable and the open water is a few weeks away.
It is time to start turkey hunting. If you have not tried it yet I would suggest giving it a shot.
Well, it looks like even though we thought winter would never end, it is going quick.
There was over 3 feet of ice on Gull Lake last week but now it is melting fast and the shorelines are eroding quickly.
After spending a few days at the Northwest Sportshow last week, seeing all the people getting excited and checking out all the new boats and camping gear, I figured that I should share a few tips on storing all your winter gear so you will be ready next fall.
First, storing and winterizing your auge...
Sometimes those last minute trips can be unorganized and not very successful but not this time.
On 12 hours notice I was invited on a last minute trip to Lake Superior for lake trout by good friend Jesse Sanders.
Most people like to go south for spring break. Not me. I don't want to miss out on this great late ice fishing. And even though the snow has just begun to melt and we have more than 3 feet of ice, the bite is on.
Since the weatherman was saying we were supposed to break the freezing mark this week I decided it would be a good time to head north to beat the heat.
On Tuesday we headed to Lake of the Woods to do some fishing with the Up North crew.
This winter two phrases have been overused, polar vortex and global warming. That's all everyone talks about is the horrible weather. Yes, the cold is getting to be a bit much but there is nothing we can do about it so you might as well embrace it.
I guess time fly's when your having fun, or just trying to get through this winter without frostbite.
You are really seeing a lot less fisherman on the lake compared to a normal year, at least it seems like it to me.
