Ice Out Update #7 … Trout Fishing???

We’ve had some open water out in front of the lodge which inspired a couple of short trolling passes in search of a trout…

Gull Rock seems a bit icy!
The ice pack seems thin, but very interesting for Stella and Lilly.
A gratuitous shot of cabin 3 awaiting opening day!
A few ice shards on the small island by camp.

Unfortunately no trout have found us yet but the plan is some smoked trout for the first fish fry…

On another subject…cabin renovation of cabin 6.  Things are progressing.  Part of the process is recycling materials from the demolition to be incorporated into the new look.  Of course some of this material has historical significance, illustrated by this piece of what was once pine paneling that is now baseboard material.  I hope F.G. and S. G. are still happy!  Where is Jeff K. now?  Many unanswered questions that are still present in our cabins…

I’m thinking we are getting very close to ice out….and catching a trout!  Stay tuned.
