Update 2/26/2010

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Well, February is almost gone. The Twain is still pretty frozen with the exception of under the bridges and up at the dam. The ice is looking pretty shaky though, so it won’t take many nice days to clear it off. No change in the plans for the Christmas tree drop scheduled for March 20 or 27. I will keep you posted as I hear more. It sounds like we will most likely be dropping mostly cedar trees on this end of the lake. — Thank you to all who have been calling to confirm your reservations and getting your deposits in. It helps us through these long winter months, plus Mary gets to chat a bit. — We are looking forward to some nice weather!!

Update 2/14/2010

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

Here we are…Valentines Day already. It seems like it’s been a long winter, but that just means spring is on it’s way. It looks like we will have lot’s of help for the Christmas tree drop this year. That’s great!! We will likely be dropping a lot of cedars as well. The tentative date is still March 20, but it might be March 27. I will keep you all posted on that.—- I will be at the boat show up in Moline, Illinois this coming weekend. It was a great show last year and I expect it will be this year as well. Come on out and enjoy all the booths and seminars.—- Today is the last day for small game hunting. After that it will be coyotes and soon the snow geese should be showing up.—- I hear the walleye fishing over on the Mississippi River has been doing pretty good. Give Lynn Tharp a call if you want to hire a guide and get some good fishing in to break that cabin fever. His contact information is in the contacts area of this website. He can also take you up to Thomas Hill for a day of crappie fishing. I have heard of some good catches coming from there this winter.— The Twain is still frozen solid with the exception of a bit of open water under the bridges. I guess one could fish there or below the dam, but I haven’t heard of anyone doing that. I did hear of a lot of eagles up near the dam so that in itself would be worth a trip. If anyone is thinking about doing that call us first or post on here so I can find out if they are still there before you come.—- We are working hard around here trying to get some projects done to make the resort a bit better than last year for all of our guests. See you all soon
