Just off the ice from “Fishing with Vets”

Just off the ice and writing this article on a Sunday evening, as early Monday morning will find me back in the Big Winnie area for the “Fishing with Vets” outing. Based out of High Banks Resort, two dozen veterans will be sampling the waters of Big Winnie, Cut Foot, Round Lake, and then some. It all depends on just where the best bite is happening and a full report will be given next week.

Lake travel varies from lake to lake since our most recent snowfall. A prime example is Burntside Lake, where we drove pickup trucks all over in search of lake trout, is almost to the point where truck travel will be no more until it melts down sometime in March.

Mike Lindgren earns vintage Best of Show

TAMARACK/LAWLER, Minn.—With so little snow this year there was a low turn-out for the 26th Annual Vintage Run held January 31. Registration started out at 9:00 a.m. and, by the time for the ride to leave Tamarack, 48 vintage machines were registered. Thirty-five riders left Tamarack and rode their machines to Lawler. The others trailered their machines.

The morning started out sunny and 21 degrees; the only thing missing was snow. Jackson’s Hole, in Lawler, had their hot chicken noodle soup and hot dogs waiting for the participants to enjoy. The Sno-Flyers want to thank everyone that participated in this year’s event; also all the volunteers that helped out with the vintage run.

An order has been placed for more snow in 2016. The Tarmarack Vintage Run will be on January 30, 2016.

The following participants were awarded trophies.
