It is getting hard to wait

Ice has been out for two weeks already. The earliest ever. We still have another 5 weeks or so until our first fishermen begin to show up. I am already looking forward to the first plate of fresh walleye in mid May.


Fishing walleye in the spring seems like it can be easy but in reality is challenging more.

Early last week, I was chatting with my buddy Donnie about his job.  Donnie used to own Castle Baits in Ignace and many of our long time guests know him and have purchased minnows from him in the past.  Donnie no longer retails bait but he still wholesales to other retailers. Amazingly minnows and leeches don’t just appear in those more.

3 days til opener

Posted by on Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at 10:17 am

We are only three days away from walleye opener and already we are having weather delays.  Since yesterday around noon we haven’t been flying.  At least it isn’t snow.  That is coming for the weekend.  Hopefully by tomorrow  – the forecast isn’t good for the rest of the day – we will be able to get more work done at more.
