Let the fish stories be told. Let the pictures be shared. Let the fun, random, exciting and unique experiences of our guests, families and friends be shared.
We love having our new caretakers/managers Ken and Deb here. Folks have commented on how friendly and helpful they are. They have been doing a Saturday afternoon cookout and cinnamon rolls on Sunday morning. Thank you Ken and Deb!
We had a slow start mid May with the late ice-out, but that didn't discourage our "Cabanna Boys in the AARP" cabin!
Pete pushed the ice away from the dock so the others could get a line in out about 4'. Actually caught some fish! Then on Thursday, Mike L., and Tommy D. from Buhl, and Johnny R. from Hibbing area caught quite a few! There is a photo in the gallery.
Our second week of the season found the Engbrethe folks catching a lot! We have pictures on our Face Book of some. The other folks in camp did well too, and weather held up nicely. Over the Memorial Day week, the regular folks who
return every year, had a blast with the catching/fish fry/catching, repeat. Thanks to all of you for returning.
Moving on, we had folks from Iowa and Indiana here and they faired very well, but the cutest animal story was from Marlene. She was fishing off the dock and landed a Northern. She got it on the dock as Mark was in the cabin for a minute. Up the steps comes an Otter, looking for a free meal! Marlene shooed it away from her flopping fish because she was afraid of the Otter getting the hook and all the line. That was a brazen, hungry Otter! It swam under the dock and got the minnow on the line.
The next few weeks were good fishing and stable weather for the most part. Cody B. caught a BIG fish and was so
excited! I told him to hold out his hands as to the size of the fish. Mom will send a picture she took, but this is all we have
