For those lucky enough to have fished back in Caribou Lake I thought these pictures from today (Monday, March 2) would be of some interest. I did my usual run to tuck some full gas cans at the portage boats. This beats "humping" them over the trail in the summer. As far as this trip went, I had to break the trail........good thing I had a long track and a chain saw! As far as I could tell all the small-mouth bass are still slumbering in their beds under a thick layer of snow and ice. I wonder if they are thinking of the spring spawn?
