Mr. SPVR Bear says Spring is near


Mr. SPVR Bear has come out of hibernation and is saying the end of winter is over for Crane Lake. He watches as the snow continues to melt and the water flowing into the lake. After a walk on the  ice in the warm sun he senses that open water is just around the corner. The quote of the day from him was ” I may not be a ground hog, but I know the sights and sounds of spring. It is here to stay”.

California Girl To Crane Lake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACrane 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.
