The only ice in the lake that day was at the east end where Red Lake was located. It broke up entirely two days later on May 14.
The weather immediately turned cold, windy and wet.
On Friday, May 15, we received 12 inches of snow. It was one of the largest single-day snowfalls of the winter!
Desite the snow staffer Joe Cox and I took a fishing boat to town on Saturday, May 16, and got our big boat Lickety Split.
Temperatures were very cold, far below freezing at night and not much warmer in the day.
However, when our first guests arrived May 22 they must have brought the warm weather with them because it has been quite seasonal since then. Other than a little rain yesterday our fishermen have not had any inclement weather.
