I choose to come to work by the “back door”. I take County Rd 51 to County Rd 159 and drive past Lake Sagatagan.  This morning it was like a Currier & Ives print.  Hoar frost on all the trees.   

Tonight is the first night of music, food and beer at the third annual Otter Tail County on Ice.  This year my son Erik and his crew moved the tent to the parking lot of Thumper Pond in Otter Tail.  Too much snow created bad ice. You can still get tickets by going to  

If you want to participate in a fishing tournament, simply download a free app,  “Fishdonkey” , search for the tournament OTC ON ICE and register.  I just did it and if I can master it, so can you.  What is special about this tournament is you can fish on any body of water in Otter Tail County. There are prizes for largest Blue Gill, Crappie, Walleye and Northern.  My grandson, Walleye Willie is in third place for Crappie.   The Outdoor Report will be giving a $500 check to someone.  Everyone that catches and registers a walleye on any lake in Otter Tail County will have their name put into a hat and there will be a drawing.  An 8 inch Walleye could win $500.

The headliner is Tigirlily.  They are from North Dakota and they are an awesome act.  Enjoy.

Live from Here this weekend is a rebroadcast.  Next Saturday the show will be live from Town Hall in New York City.
