LOST BOAT

11 posts in this topic

I went up to the lake friday and much to my surprise my duck boat floated away. I leaned it against the pontoon lift on dry ground but the lake rose at least 2 ft. and floated it away.

It is 14" aluminum plain duck boat, peeling brown paint. My neighbor is a pilot and he brought me up in is plane to search but we did not see it. Hopefully someone grabbed it and is holding it.

Anybody see a boat on Lawerence lake north of Grand Rapids or hear of anyone finding one please get a hold of me. As of right now my season is over.

Hi Mike,

I believe my father has your boat. One washed up on his property and he called the sheriff, was waiting for someone to claim it.

I am having problems with your mail so email me at vikeswinthebowl@hotmail.com

Bottomdweller,

I sent you an e-mail.

That would be great if your Dad has it.

Kinda ruined my weekend of Duck hunting. I can describe some of the characteristics that nobody else would know to identify it.

Thanks,

Mike

Bottemdweller,

I called your father and it sounds like he has my boat.

Thanks so much for stepping up.

The POWER of this sight is amazing.

Mike

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
