The ice………she lingers……….

…….like the aroma of a wet dog on your truck seat………it takes a while to dissipate. So too with the ice. With a switch in wind direction the ice has moved back towards the lodge……….that’s the black area on the photo.

Susanne and I hiked down the walking trail to a point past the government dock…..McColl’s Island and Strawberry Island in the background, with some ice off to the right.

What’s left of the ice looks like this……just a bunch of ice shards packed together. I would be surprised to see what’s left last another day. Some rain for tomorrow should finish it off…..stay tuned!

    I can see those lake trout roaming the shores of Vermilion Bay in those pics, you might want to get out for an hour and troll those hot spots and hook into a 20lb trout for the blog…
