I've been up and down Collinwood and have never graphed or snagged on anything such as a threshing machine. Maybe some old wives tales? The stories you hear about "whats down there" get pretty humorous at times. I think when the fish aren't biting people's mind get real creative. wink.gif

Those stories are always funny. I remember hearing there was an old combine in Silver Lake. I suppose it was a "Gleaner", hence the lake name?

Never graphed anything on Winsted or Collinwood. But who knows? How many years went by before they found that airplane in Green lake?

Check out the Luce Line Winsted page and you will find this:

(it is still in there)

By Tuesday, Oct. 27, the new track was complete and freight service was resumed. Workers continued to labor, dismantling the trestle and removing much of the wreckage with the exception of a wooden "Soo Line" boxcar and a few of the freight car wheels and tracks, which still remain in the lake to this day.

I remember as a kid talking with a old timer and he said the same thing about the threasher. Dont know if its true are not though. One time back in the early 90's on collinwood me and my buddy chopped a spear hole in 6fow and there was a 1987 twins world series bumper sticker on a car that had been in there a while. Talk about weird. The dnr ended up pulling it out.

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....
