Nothing better than a big smile on a big boy with a big fish.
Things are taking shape around Crane Lake in preparations for the 2016 season. With an early ice out and normal water levels should be good for the spring fish spawn.
Even with the days getting longer and the snow cover dropping we haven’t starting putting boats into the lake. There is still some ice fishing going on, but it only will be a couple of weeks and lake travel will be over until ice out.
The snowbirds have all headed south for the winter. However, a few have stayed to enjoy the new year.
Fall fishing was fun and beautiful colors.
July fishing has been good. Walleyes, northern pike, bass, and pan fish have all been on the bite. With summer weather settling in the water has warmed up and stabilized. The May Fly hatch is past us and all the little fellers are getting hungry.
Fishing season is open and things are looking good. The early out led to a good spawn and the water is approaching its normal level. Memorial Weekend is approaching with a great weather forecast.
