White swan winter wonderland
A group of swans in the water can be called a bank, due to the way they crowd along the bank of a river or lake.

At least two large "banks" of swans were seen congregating near the shoreline on Sanborn Lake outside of Backus on Monday morning, Nov. 22, 2021.

DNR extends spottail shiner trapping on Upper Red, 3 other lakes – 2 days after gear had to be out of water
Spottail shiners are the go-to baitfish for many Minnesota walleye anglers from the fishing opener through late May into early June, but supplies have been tight this spring.
It’s best to find out in advance what’s missing and won’t work. The time for such discoveries is not when you start to pitch a tent upon your arrival at the campground right at dusk on a Friday night.
Conservationists have spent years trying to stave off a national decline in hunting and fishing, but the 2020 pandemic appears to have righted a sinking ship.
