January 12th, 2005: The shows are well under way with three down and 12 more to go. It’s going to be a whirlwind for the next few weeks moving from show to show for relatively short stays in cities like St. Charles, IL followed by Grand Rapids, MI then Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, St. Louis and finally Omaha. We’ll be through all those cities in just over a month. Then later in March we’ll be back in Milwaukee and Cleveland and finish up in Minneapolis where I expect we’ll be selling mostly for 2006 since we’re very close to being sold out of June dates at the lodge and our first opening at the outpost is July 10th, 2005. Of coarse Aswap is sold out for the season, as per usual and we have only a few weeks to sell in Kitchi and Joint Lake. There’s not much point in listing them since at this time of year things tend to change daily. Please give us a call or send us an email to check for availability, there’s always a few groups that we think are set in stone, but issues come up and space becomes available.

The dates for the Bolton TV show have been set. On The Outdoor Channel ¬†our show will air on Monday, January 31st at 9:30 p.m. then again on Friday, February 4th at 4:30 p.m. and on Sunday, February 6th at 11:30 p.m. I’m pretty sure those are Eastern times.

It’s been way too cold to get out and fish around here lately so I have not fished for nearly a month. On the bright side, the winter roads should open on schedule this year and we should have no trouble getting the new motors, fuel and other supplies to the lodge this winter.
