February 9, 2010 Wolf Sightings!

10 02 2010

Our neighbor spotted 4  TIMBERWOLVES yesterday walking along the shoreline on the north side of the lake.  Another neighbor reported fresh wolf tracks (two sets) just down the road yesterday as well.  It is that time of year, when wolves become active, hunting in packs for food.  What a sight!

I went ice fishing Sunday.  I was on the east end of the lake in about 15′ of water between 1:00 and 5:00 PM.  I didn’t get a bite.  Apparently, even the fishkies were watching the Super Bowl!

Norhtern Minnesota is great this tme of year.  Winter brings about a whole new vision of nature at its best.  I expect fishing to pick up in the next couple of weeks as the weather mellows to 0-30f above zero consistenly.  The snow is perfect for skiing, snowmobiling and fun!

Pelican Lake is quiet now.  We seldom see people on the lake.  It’s peaceful and serene.  When the moon is bright late night skiing is fantastic!

The ice is between 24″-36″ thick.  Last year, we had 36″-48″ of ice at the end of the season.  I don’t think it will get that thick this year.  That will lead to an earlier “ice out”.  I’ll keep you posted.

Stay tuned for updates now on a daily or weekly basis from here to the opener!…just 95 days away!!!!!
