Winter is back, life of a dog, and some inspirational fishing photos…

Did we seem to think that because the ice was gone that Spring was around the corner?  Wrong……..two shots from today, several hours apart.

It’s bad enough that the highway is closed in both directions.  Terrible if you are a traveler, but not so bad if you are a dog.  Here’s some examples of the cheap entertainment Stella and Lily get to experience every day…..”it’s squirrel time!”

The squirrels want the bird seed, the dogs want the squirrel.  Patience does pay off.  A number of the less agile squirrels have become saliva covered lawn ornaments……

Fishing Opener is coming……

Time to pull out the gear and prepare.  Phase one is Early Spring.  We’re talking prime time for shallow water lake trout, big pike and some chunky walleye.  Let’s see some results from the past….

A beauty of a fish!

The size and depth of Eagle Lake is ideal for Lake Trout

…I guess Mike is!

  1. Thank you so much for posting that stunning picture of you and Jeremey Wade coming out of the sauna. I really didn’t need to see that again . It took a long time to forget it the first time.
