STAFF BLOG NORTHLAND OUTDOORS Young swimmers report biting fish at Indiana lake
The good news is that the fish are really biting at Hardy Lake near Scottsburg in southern Indiana. The bad news is they're chomping the little kids swimming in the roped-off recreation area there. Wh... Posted on 6/4/10 at 2:48 AM
NORTH DAKOTA OUTDOORS AND BEYOND it's not just 'sea weed'
Your boat, trailer, jet ski, live wells and anything that goes into and comes back out of the waterway's just might be moving the next zebra mussels. And while I understand nobody would intentionally ... Posted on 5/27/10 at 6:15 AM
DULUTH, Minn. -- Snow and ice cover Lake Superior.
It’s a bitter February day on the big expanse of frozen water, and the wind is cold and the air has a bite to it.
Two figures trudge across the lake, bundled up and supplies in hand. Upon first glance, one might think these two men are heading out for an ice fishing trip. And they will be chipping away at the ice, but for a very different reason.
DULUTH — A potential ice fishing world-record lake trout caught by a northern Minnesota man earlier this month has been confiscated from a Duluth taxidermist by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
I've always enjoyed my own little internal debates, like would I rather have a 12-ounce hamburger steak for a little less price than an 8-ounce ribeye? And the same concept applies to the outdoors. Would you rather catch 15 decent perch or three big pike during a few hours of ice fishing?
ELY — Night had settled over the Wingnut encampment on Snowbank Lake. The big wall tent radiated lantern light from within. Moonlight illuminated the surface of the lake. A row of tiki torches, orange flames dancing in the night, lit the path from a campfire on shore to the tent pitched on the ice.
She’ll be in just her second sled dog race and Elizabeth Nelson will be far younger and less seasoned than most of her competitors in the mid-distance event of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon that begins today.
CORNUCOPIA — An occasional deep rumble rises from beneath frozen Lake Superior. The wind rustles through vegetation high atop vertical bluffs covered in jagged daggers of ice. Dripping water plinks deep within a cave in the rust-orange sandstone.
In the end, it was a race against the ice. For nearly 7,500 miles, Daniel Alvarez had paddled his kayak, and now he couldn’t feel his hands and his feet. He labored up the western shore of Lake of the Woods, willing himself to go on, stopping to run on empty beaches to drive feeling back into his extremities.
Planning the trip to Montana had started months earlier in the dead of a North Dakota winter. While sitting at the fly-tying vise, I pondered what it would be like crossing the Continental Divide in my old 1956 Cessna 180 en route to some of the best rainbow trout rivers in the world. The flight itself would be an adventure, the fishing for rainbows and browns on the Missouri River, a lifetime experience.
