Winter brings good biz for local stores

On the phone, Ken Neely sounded so busy it might have been hard for him to talk for a few minutes. Neely and his family own K.D. Outdoors in Waterford.
It's pretty much THE spot to head to for fishing and hunting questions along with information about what is happening on the local scene.
'This winter has been one of top three seasons we have had," he said. "It's a far cry from three years ago when there wasn't any ice."
The hot lure this year is a locally made jig called a Laser Minnow and Neely stocks them. "They're being used on Maceday Lake for lake trout," Neely said.
"i can tell you the colors that are working for just about all species of fish. Purple and pink seem to be doing it for everything," he said.
Neely says he sold out of ice shacks and augers."I can't even order anymore," he said. Lakes in the area that are producing include Union Lake for gills and perch, Lake Oakland for gills.
