DULUTH -- Chris Johnson had his hands full. Sitting alone in his fishing shelter Tuesday afternoon on Lake Superior, his fishing rod was bent in a serious arc. His rod tip was pointed straight at the bottom of Lake Superior 100 feet below. “I’ve got a big one on,” said Johnson, of Milaca. “I’ve had him on for 10 minutes.”
DULUTH - The large, white owl sits like a statue on the snow. Occasionally, he rotates his head, but you have to watch closely to catch the movement. He’s sitting on a gentle rise that slopes to the south, catching the sun on this 20-below-zero morning. If you were just driving by, you’d never notice him. He would be one more lump of white on a broad field of snow.
