Spring Returns to Bayfield, Wisconsin

 

My good friend and client in Bayfield, Bob Durfey, sent me a delightful email about fishing tugboats firing up their engines and making a first run to Grant's Point (on nearby Madeline Island) yesterday morning. Bob wrote,

 

"A follow up to yesterday...
 
We went to the dock and listened to all the banter. four fishing boats gave their all, three making it to Grant's Point on the southwest side of Madeline Island, one turning back halfway there. Ferry made its inaugural run at 11 am. We spent the day working in the yard, spreading black dirt, repairing some rotten wood on one of the raised garden beds, adding manure...and all the time listening to the roar of the diesels pounding through the ice on Lake Superior. Our thermometer read 51 degrees by mid-afternoon. This morning we found an inch of snow in the yard. A little snow in the air now and all the boats are at the docks.
 
Here are some pix to let you know the ice will be gone and there will be fresh fish in the market soon."
 
 

I'll be in Bayfield next week, and am looking forward to my first visit to Madeline Island in several weeks. The Madeline Island Ferry Line has resumed it's scheduled trips between Bayfield and La Pointe, Wisconsin.  Life is good and, as my friend Bob wrote, "there will be fresh fish in the market soon".

Barbara Todaro - I'm in Minneapolis today, at my metro area office, wishing a bit that I was up north in Bayfield.  It's not quite as warm here as in New England (about 36 degrees), but we are climbing out of winter in the Midwest at last!

Eric, lately I've found myself reminiscing about fishing quite a bit. Makes me think I better teach my kids to fish soon as they are already 13 and 14.

Good idea, Bob!  Those memories of fishing with the kids will be long-remembered.

I tried to get my HVAC guy to come over yesterday to check out my AC before hot weather hits, and he couldn't do it because it wasn't warm enough. It was at least in the 70s here. But Thursday it will hit the 80s in Sacramento. It's a dry heat, they say. 80 feels like 70.

Good morning Eric. Spring is working hard to show up in the Northeast and we are getting some snow today. It will get here for sure.

Make it a great weekend!
