Warm Weekend: Are You Taking Advantage?

This weekend has brought some beautiful weather to Otter Tail Country - and we're hoping you're taking advantage of the high temperature and low wind combination that is so rare for February!

No, the snow won't have that nice powdery feel that we like on our snowmobiles, but on the plus side, you won't have to wear as many layers! You can get some nice speed on that hard packed snow as well - just be safe and be sure to wear your helmets. Snowmobile accidents in Minnesota are far too common.

Ice fishing would have been wonderful the last couple of days - great for the angler with a pop up portable ice house or even someone who wants to go sit on the ice and enjoy the weather - 30+ degrees are an ice fisherman's dream! I've been hearing tons of great reports that people are catching fish in places that weren't hot just a few weeks ago. Friends of mine fished a spot on Otter Tail Lake that we tried about a month ago and caught some really nice walleyes (when I was along, of course we got skunked!).

Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and just enjoying a nice walk would all be great ways to enjoy some time in Otter Tail Country while the weather is warm - you never know when the next cold snap will take over.

So let us know - how are you taking advantage of this heat wave? Let us know in the comments.
