Itching to fish, visited Menahga, Mn instead

Got a call from Urho on Thursday with an invite to go to Isle Royale for a weekend of fishing the best waters on the lake, but I passed it up. Sometimes NORMAL life plans get in the way and I have to spend time with the family. Instead our family spent last weekend in […]

Fishing near Horseshoe Harbor, Copper Harbor

This past Wednesday was too windy to fish in Bete Grise and most of the lakers have moved out, so we went around the point to fish the north shore instead. The ride out started in Lac La Belle as very calm… it was like glass and we were the only ones disturbing the surface. […]
