Our son, Brian and his girlfriend Missy were up visiting for a couple of days. They love to take the canoe out and fish area lakes. They shared some of the wildlife photos they took while fishing, along with some of the fishing success they had.
I apologize that it has been so long since I have blogged anything. November and December seemed to just fly by! Our oldest son, Brian was here on vacation January 1-9. His friend Jim joined him and they had a fantastic week of ice fishing. There may not be a lot of snow up here, but the ice is in great shape. John even managed to get out for a few days to enjoy the fishing. We have had many great meals of fish this last week. Brian, who is a chef, even made us walleye for breakfast one morning! Enjoy all the photos.
Never tried ice fishing? Maybe this winter can be your first. We’d love to have you come stay with us and enjoy some ice fishing.
A musky was hanging around the beach dock all last week. One night there was a fishing pole in the water at each pier slip with everyone fighting to be the first one to catch the musky. Mr. Musky eluded them all. It was a sight to see. The kids were so excited about it. they kept coming to me giving me a minute to minute report.
One of our 30th Anniversary celebration activities is a night fishing with John. Names can be submitted for a raffle drawing at our weekly picnic. As John says: “I am not a guide, we will just go out for a fun night of fishing.” Depending on interest he will either go out on White Birch Lake or take his canoe to a carry in lake.
Last night John and Curtis went to a carry in lake and had great success catching walleyes. guess what’s for dinner tonight? 🙂
John and our two sons, Brian and Chris, went crappie fishing last night. They each got their limit and we know have 75 more fish to eat. Yum! John’s fishing report: Crappies are spawned out and the Bluegills are now on the beds.
This past weekend we had a few people up for ice fishing. It was a slow weekend, but everyone hung in there and this morning proved to be a little different.
John went ice fishing tonight and caught his limit of 25 bluegills. Our guests who stayed in Red Oaks over the holidays had a successful 5 days ice fishing. The largest being a 23 inch walleye!
