We are getting settled in at the base in Red Lake. It feels great to be back, the only thing missing is the big yellow school bus parked at the dock. I hope to go and get the Otter later this week if Mother Nature will allow.

Saturday it rained all day, which ate up the ice. Sunday it snowed off and on, but we never accumulated any more than a skiff of snow. Today and for the rest of the week the forecast is for warm temperatures with sunshine! The water level is slightly low in Red Lake but we will not know how the levels are anywhere else until we get moving and open up the camps.

I hope you are ready to catch some fish this summer!!
