So the first question that comes to mind is… Can I catch one more Northern and have a limit? Or can I catch two more?
There’s been some controversy in a few local circles about the authenticity of this fish (or fishes). Is this an actual catch from the natural world? Or is it some web-based photo-manipulated hoax?
Go here for the exciting (web-based) answer.

I was here.
Today, we have plenty of tools, devices, and gadgets to help us determine where we are. (Maybe what we need is a gizmo to enhance our sense of where we have been and where we are going.)
In real estate, especially real estate in “out-state-type” areas, monuments placed in the land are significant in establishing ownership boundaries. In fact, nothing brings more pleasure in this business than finding a property marker. Markers come in all sizes and shapes, but typically, they are rod-shaped, i.e. a pipe, a post, a pin. And finding one can make the day.
I found this Section marker a few days ago. At that point in time I might have said to myself, “I now know where I am”.
This adds credence to the time-worn saying of “Where ever you go, there you are”.

Muskie vs. Northern Pike
Apparently, when it comes to pitting the Muskie against the Northern Pike in the natural world of survival, the Northern Pike is the better man. The DNR offers this recent report.
Oh, and Muskie season opens tomorrow!
