Buddy of mine received some nasty hail damage. His garage windows were all busted up, and every tree in his yard was striped of its leaves. There were even a few dead birds laying in the yard! Shows what damage baseball size hail can do!

I know another guy lost the majority of his shingles.

Am I missing something here? I was playing softball in Corcoran last night at 7:30 and got home to Monticello at 9:30. Never a drop of rain in Corcoran or in Monticello. I have not watched the news or anything, where in Wright County did the storm go through? My house seems to miss all the hail storms, it would be nice to get a new roof and siding, although a pain to deal with insurance company I'm sure.

The storm came in through Annandale, passed just south of Buffalo (might have hit buffalo lake) and knocked up Montrose head on.

Trust me, you don't want to deal w/ the insurance company on it. I was hit pretty hard in Big Lake about 2 years ago, and the insurance company tried to cut every corner in the book to keep their cost down. I was unlucky enough to have the insurance company be able to find my old siding, so they would only replace the 2 walls that were damaged. After 7 years of sun-fading and weathering, I wasn't going for that, so I ended up footing the bill to do the rest of the house.

There are still 100's of houses in Big Lake with no work done yet because insurance companies want to play badmitton and use you as the birdie.

We got our house fixed after 13 months of dicker and dagger.

They ONLY want to replace whats bad, regardless if it would be functionable, reasonable, or look decent.

We started with hearing, "2 squares of shingles, 1 window, and 1 wall of siding, or $2,400; whichever you choose".

It ended with an entire new roof, all new soffits, all new facia, complete new siding, new windows all around, a new sliding patio door, and a can of beer.

$32,000 check from insurance later, and a couple contractors, and the house is as good as new.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.
