|Our own fishing show!|
With the snow depths on the lakes what it is, I doubt the wheel house will see any more action this year unless Lake of the Woods opens up. It's been plain brutal this week with low temperatures below zero since last Friday's storm. It's hard to believe that the daily high for this time of year is now up to 32 degrees and the 10 day forecast shows no real return to normal. This should be an interesting spring for sure, heck in about 2 weeks we go back to daylight savings time, uffda. My John Deere 47 inch Snowblower has seen it's use this year and on Sunday I broke the main drive chain while cleaning up last Thursday's mess. Hats off the Pete who let me use his heated garage to repair it in 65 degree comfort. Sometimes when you work in below zero conditions you take shortcuts so working in the warm I was able to reset the sprocket alignment, the main cause of my problems in the first place. The John Deere is ready for the next snow event, I'm glad because I'm not! Looks like it will occur on Friday. All inland walleye and pike fishing has closed as of Sunday so it's either on the border waters or panfishing from now till May. Winter obviously isn't done.
