Brook Trout, Coyotes, Deer and lot's of snow removal have filled in my time since I last posted. There will be lots of action to come in the near future as well, with sun filled afternoons finally starting to make a dent in the four feet of snow currently on the ground and Open Water fishing is officially open if you can find any. For those of you looking to wet a line I can confirm that the Mud to Cross Lake thoroughfare is flowing freely, but I would expect it to need a rise in water levels to get fish moving. If you are really itching to wet a line that might be your only option for another week or two! I have muskie on the brain and will let you know as soon as there is a fishable locale! I have also put a really nice pair of Chippewa boots through their paces during one of the harshest winters we have had lately and they have perfumed beautifully. I will be writing to tell you about them shortly!
A weekend on Madawaska Lake produced some frying pan brookies, but no monsters were iced. A real nice fish made a big run out to deep water, but managed to spit the hook before we could put eyes on him. It was a nice day despite trudging through the knee deep fluff and bottoming out the auger with 3' of ice!
Tim Cyr did his part to help the deer herd by taking out this big male coyote.
Lot's of action planned in the near future as we start catching fish and chasing long beards!
