Quite a storm...

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

My dad was up at the lake home this past weekend and he said that there was a major storm that rolled through the Marcell area. We lost a couple of big old trees from the front yard. Sad. Some local kids even reported a tornado. Can anyone confirm that?

Just talked to the relatives that live on Graves near Marcell. They have a bunch of trees down, but thankfully no damage to any buildings or people. They could not verify any tornado, but said winds were easily 50 mph. Lots of work to do now in the woods to get ready for deer season. They also said 1 1/2" of rain in a very short time. I need to find some tine to get up that way as I have not been up there this year. Sunnies should be biting soon.

I was on duty last Saturyday night in Deer River and had to wear the "weather spotter" hat for about an hour from 7pm to 8pm. According to the Nat'l Weather Service there was a Tornado Warning and Severe T-Storm Warning. I did see alot of rotation in the clouds, but no funnel clouds or tornados seen by me. 1 person did call our dispatch to report a funnel cloud north of Deer River, but that's where I was and I didn't see anything. We got very little rain in town, but NE of town got pounded all the way up to Marcell. I heard lots of trees down in that area and winds estimated at 40mph +. The storm came in fast and left just as fast. Definitely a tense hour or so with those rotating clouds!

We have a place between Moose and Deer lake and we lost a big white pine and a couple of old trees. I was outside trying to save my screen house but it got a little to crazy so I gave up and now it is trashed. My antenna that is on a mast also blew over and is in need of repair.It seemed that there was a narrow area that sustained the super high winds. My guess it was straight line winds but the weird part was that it lasted for 20 min. and with how strong the winds were I still had 3/4 of a inch of rain in my gauge. This weekend the work will start cleaning and burning.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
