LEECH LAKE: THE HARD WATER KING
Leech Lake is a lake for all seasons. Beginning with the famed Minnesota Walleye opener, Leech Lake is a joy for hardcore anglers and families for putting fish in the boat or on the ice. While Leech is well known for it’s summer fishing, ice fishing on Leech is underutilized and offers a chance to fish with minimal pressure and competition. While the big four get more attention and deservedly so, give Leech Lake a shot, she won’t disappoint! Leech Lake is 111,527 acres of lake that offers plenty of options when it comes to ice fishing and other outdoor activities. The lake itself has numerous resorts that are spread out throughout from Steamboat Bay to Bear Island. Read more...

SEARCH AND DESTROY... THE QUEST FOR THE PIG PERCH
Perch are one of the tastiest freshwater fish and are a favorite amongst ice anglers everywhere. Catching them through the ice is becoming more difficult but your odds will improve with a solid game plan.  You can’t catch em if you don’t know where they live; the search will turn to destroy more often if the “when and where” is understood. A quick study of a detailed contour map or handheld GPS, and consideration of these areas; shallow bays, mudflats and deep basins, will put you on top of the “feed trough”.  Hammering into a school of perch is exhilarating, especially when you get into the “Pigs”; those of the 10-14 inch size.

geocaching
Geocaching is a treasure hunt! It’s an outdoor activity that combines hiking and exploring using a handheld Global Positioning System (GPS) to locate either virtual or actual treasure caches. Hidden treasure chests lie unprotected waiting to be found by the few who know they exist. One might be in a hollowed out log, another magnetically attached to the underside of a downtown bench. The trinkets within aren’t anything extraordinary, because the real treasure is the hunt itself. “After my first find, I was hooked” said Walter Secore, who has been Geocaching for six years.

IS YOUR PROPERTY, YOUR PROPERTY?
Owner’s Title insurance is extremely important when purchasing a house or other real estate property. Yet many consumers are unsure about what title insurance is and what it protects against. The purpose of this white paper is to help the purchaser of real estate property understand how titles can become defective and decide whether Owner’s Title Insurance is the right choice for them. The job of searching the public records to identify existing rights and interests is not an easy task. Title Companies search public land records for matters that may affect the title, but even the most exhaustive search may not uncover all of the title defects. Owner’s Title Insurance protects the purchaser against hidden title defects. Read more...

BIKE TRAILS

TIME FOR A FINANCIAL CHECKUP?
For most people, checkups are a regular part of life. Dental visits, auto maintenance appointments and even glances in the bathroom mirror all help people monitor performance, catch potential problems and assure that all is – or will be – well. What’s true of teeth, engines and grooming is also true of finances: regular checkups are required. Why? Changes both great and small affect the strategies people have developed to achieve their financial goals. Unfortunately, too many people act as though once their financial program is in place their work is done. This isn’t so.! Read more...

A Very Solid Foundation for a Very Real Recovery
In case you haven’t noticed… the housing market is making a recovery. House prices are cheap right now. At an average 30-plus percent below their peak, buying a home is a bargain in just about any area of the country. In fact, in many cities, it’s even more affordable to buy – taxes and all included – than to rent. Better yet, borrowing costs hit an all-time low in February. Read more...
