Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
It is that time of year again and the main lake ice is forming. Yesterday there was ice as far as we could see from our place, but with this warmer weather coming the next few days I doubt if it will stay.
We are busy at the place going thru trucks and equipment, checking the rentals and making improvements, and waiting for ice.
Another project we are working on this year is restoring the old barn, (the one you see when you came in our driveway), when you see it again you will be surprised to see the changes. The downstairs part by next year will be our Ice Fishing office, with bathrooms and showers for our customers if all goes as planned. The upstairs,(haymow), will be restored to it’s original condition and alot of the downstairs will have a restored look also. You will have to see it when you get here.
Alot has happened on the fishing front this past summer with the DNR. The lake is approaching the “almost recovered” stage according to them. But “politics” between the Bands and the State is affecting our harvest. I’m not getting into it now. But you will hear more from me on that as we continue thru the year.
The TWP Fishing Contest will be held again this year on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. So those that want to plan ahead, there is the date. Rules, entry fee, etc will be similar to last year, but I provide more as we go.
Hope everyone had a nice summer and let’s all look forward to a fun winter on the ice!!
Keep a Tight Line!!
