The parents and I are now stationed at Eagle Lake, Ontario waiting on the ice to disappear from the waters. Weather has been moderately warm(high 40's/low 50's), with some rain showers doing some major damage to the ice. The ice here on Eagle pulled away from the shores yesterday and is thinning.
Everyone is anxious to arrive at Big Hook and get the season underway. I have several projects that I would like to complete before the walleye opener kicks off. We all are patiently waiting for the phone to ring and hear from Sandy Lake that the ice is breaking up. Hopefully the waters will soon look like the photo.
On a side note, we received news that out pilot Andre will be returning for his second season at Big Hook.
