Crane Lake nice can have some interesting twists and turns throughout the year. As I found out ice fishing with my Granddaughter. You can take the girl out of California, but you can’t take the California out of the girl. Well guess what, we almost did. Old Gramps was undone by the new ice fisher person. After multiple trips and multiple fish there was no beginners luck to it. I think we found a natural. When Grandma asked how her day was she replied,” I spent the day with a bunch of ice holes!” Grandma pondered that comment for a moment and I thought that was appropriate given the state of confusion I was in. Life is good.
