Ice out update…May 8, 2013 “Damn the ice, full steam ahead!”


Just because the ice is slow to go doesn’t mean things aren’t getting done.  A new deck going up in the vicinity of cabin #2 will give folks a nice spot to grill a steak, view the lake, and tell tall tales of a “trout-o-rama” frenzy (feel free to substitute walleye, bull perch, or whatever species tickles your fancy) with a cold brew in hand.


Bryce is hard at it, raking the hill and wishing he had a few northern pike to practice his filleting skills on.  Soon enough Bryce….soon enough.


For those of you intensely interested in how the ice is fairing, on a bi-hourly basis, Ron Harris emailed me this link to a web cam just west of Vermilion Bay.  thanks Ron!

  1. Good idea, the new deck. Stop being so hard on Bryce. I’ve almost got the final bone from last season’s pike through the system….almost.
