A floating bog, measuring about 50 yards wide, nearly stretches across a channel on Gilbert Lake near Brainerd Wednesday, April 24. The channel connects the main lake with a small shallow bay known as a hotbed for pan fish angling early in the season. Presently all boat traffic except for canoes and kayaks are blocked from accessing the bay. Jim Stafford / Brainerd Dispatch  Video  play button
