January 5, 2019 – Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!!!
Firstly we would like to wish everyone who stayed with us in 2018 and their families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Weather up here has been sporadic at best. The trend has been warm anywhere from 15-30 degrees F. We have had the occasional dip to the more normal temperatures of -25 but they have been short lived. We don’t have a lot of snow yet but got close to a foot about 2 weeks ago and that helped. Hopefully we get some more before the end of the year so we have good run off to bring the lake levels back up.
I have been doing a little bit of ice fishing. Two of us went for walleye before Christmas and got our 8 and threw back probably 6 or so. Lake trout season just opened on the 1st and I have been out twice so far. Caught 4 opening day and 2 two days later. A bit of a slow start but we had a radical temp swing in there and I think that’s why.
Mom and I are off to Mexico on the 7th for a week to Celebrate Tyler’s wedding with him and his family. We are all very excited for it. If you need to reach us, send an email and I will reply as soon as I get home!
Otherwise not too much is new in the North. Mom has been keeping busy with volunteering and cutting meat at the store two days a week again. I have stayed busy with fishing and catching up with friends after being gone for the summer. I will hopefully be back to work doing water treatment in the far North when we get back from the trip to Mexico. In my downtime I plan on spending lots of time on the ice now that trout season is open.
More posts to follow after the trip with some pics! And hopefully more frequent ice fishing updates and pics as well.
