Re: Logistics of helicopter work on IR

On my trip on the island from the 17-24th, twice I came upon a pretty squirrely section of boardwalk, after hiking past it and thinking that would be a good boardwalk for the trail crews to replace, a trail crew of 4 to 6 people came from the opposite way I was hiking and then within twenty minutes,...

The day started out with calm and fog on the bay, then it was partly cloudy to mostly cloudy and breezy a...

Re: Fishing Potential Questions

Moskey has produced some lake trout and northern. We casted to any weeds or structure or dark spots we could find. back of the bay and shoreline areas were better than out in the open bay.
