Watching kstp over the weekend and they ran a story about a cabin cruiser that beached on the St. Croix. It was just below the Stillwater bridge on the WI side. Report said that it happened at night and "most likely alcohol was involved". Gee you think? That boat must have been about 15 to 20 yards up on dry land. WOW!

KSTP website had the story and the picture if anyone is interested. Had to laugh at this fool! And fisherman are always the problem right, LOL! NO drunken (Contact Us Please) with to much money! That should cost him a pretty penny to first get the boat off the rocks then second to repair his giant boat.

Got a good chuckle, at least no one was hurt, so it is ok to laugh. I was just curious if anyone saw the boat on Sunday and got a good laugh?

I just looked at it on KSTP's website. It was a 41 foot boat. It must have been going pretty fast.

WHAT AN .....!!!

Out of nine people on board, only 5 were there when investigators arrived.

I think there will be one hefty fine given out to the owner as soon as they find him.

That has got to help out the re-sale value of the boat!! blush.gif

I'm glad everyones alright.

They said there was at least 9 people on board and the owner and or driver fled the scene. How no one was hurt is amazing.

Fleeing the scene is a lot cheaper than a BWI. At least they made one right decision!!!

I was fishing the Hudson channel area late Friday night when a police boat goes flying by, lights on, siren howling... he was booking fast up towards Stillwater. Guess that's why!

What a maroon (in Bugs Bunny speak!)...

When is the last time you've been to the south? tongue.gif

Judging by his shirt, I'd say it's in St Louis.

What ever it is, it has my 1800 Fisherman beat all to heck. I would feel pretty bad if I grounded out with my Lund and I can imagine how dumb he feels by now if he has enough living braincells to feel anything. shocked.gif

      South Shore.  A good bite was reported for last week with the warmer temperatures in 24-32'. In addition to traditional daytime bite, some anglers getting into some good fish after dark on structure which is not typical. Morning evening bite in 15-17' for walleyes continues to be good.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape as warm weather moving around ice. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink UV.  Small rippin raps in bright and gold colors. Auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained hot. Good walleyes in 18-28' with saugers and perch in deeper water. Set dead stick a bit higher than jigging line.  Resorts guiding for crappies on the Ontario side of lake, best bite in 30' or deeper, morning best. Crappie mortality rate high when releasing in 25' or deeper thus move on to walleyes or another species when you have your fish.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Jerkin, you are absolutely onto something. Back when I used to put a permanent out in the south metro, I made sure to fish as many weekdays as possible. Weekends were always worthless, no matter the conditions. Luckily vermilion is big enough to get away from it all!

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.
