Aside from numerous fallen trees at Central and one malfunctioning windmill, everything weathered the winter rather well. I have spent most days hauling considerable amounts of necessary freight back and forth from Sandy Lake. Last Thursday, with the help of Showalters Beech 18 we moved around 8,800 pounds of goods to Central Lake.

The water is a bit on the low side for this time of year and conditions are dry here in the north woods. Only about 1/4 inch of rain has fallen in the days since our arrival. Please be diligent when having shore lunch during these dry conditions and make sure your fire is completely out when finished.
We have a new pilot working with us this summer. Luke hails from Brighton in the United Kingdom and is hoping to learn all about the boreal forest here in NW Ontario. During his first fishing outing he managed to pick up the technique rather quickly and out fished everyone in the boat.

Looking forward to seeing everyone for the 2017 season and good luck on the water!
