I heard from local sources that it's going to be closed the rest of the year! Only a minor inconvenience, eh.

I drove over the bridge this afternoon and they were rolling the sediment barrier on the west side of the bridge up onto a boat, only to drive over again a couple hours later and it had been put it out on the East side. I'm tempted to try to jump it, like the Duke Boys.....YEEEHAWWW!!

I heard that it wasn't supposed to open for a week or two, but there was a boat jumping the floats and yelling so loudly, they opened it a few days early. smile.gif

The silt fences were open yesterday...Took the family out for a little boat ride and went under the bridge for the first time.

Hey Stick, have you seen the pretty art work on the new bridge. They appear to be a series of symbols of some kind. Maybe MNDOT marks there 'turf' with graffitti? Nothing highlights the beauty of cultured stone like blue spraypaint.

No I hadn't...that's terrible. Everything from the top side looks so nice, and I haven't been by the causeway by boat lately to see how nice it looks from the water. Day by day, I get depressed more and more by what people are capable of. Hopefully it'll get covered up and look good.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
