It’s that time of year. Warm days and cool nights makes for a great week to ride. After all the snow last week, we have an excellent base and groomers are out. The trails are still in great shape and should continue for the rest of the week. Checking with riders, they are finding excellent riding and are enjoying the warmer temps. It looks like more snow for the weekend, so another chance to have some fun riding here in Voyageur country.

Rainy Lake.... Still a secret fishing spot?
People often ask me what my favorite fishing lake is. And every time I have to think about the dozens of favorites I have and quickly process why I covet my choices so I can give a straight answer. Typically, I first begin to think of the various areas of the state which I fish on a weekly basis. These areas consist of the Gull Lake area, the Leech Lake/ Park Rapids area, the Ottertail Lake area and of course the St. Cloud/ Alexandria Lakes area. Yes--I do get around, about 20,000 miles worth pulling a boat each summer. Anyone wanna buy a GMC suburban? Anyway, all of these areas employ my skills in order to help others create "fishing memories" or "trips of a life time". But there is another lake/area that is dear to my heart-- Rainy Lake. And I can't get there enough...
