Dead Lake Report

3 posts in this topic

I spent Monday thru Wednesday on the far east bay of Dead Lake. There was easily a foot of light fluffy snow. Lots of slush near shore with about 5 inches of questionable ice, but a good 7 inches of solid ice in the middle. The flooding was pretty bad after we drilled the holes, but we sopped up the water with some snow and made it work okay. There has been some ATV travel beyond the little bay, but we didn't go out to the main lake, so no information on ice condidtions off the Public Landing in the central basin. The fishing pretty much sucked, a few little pike.

Did you by chance get a good look at west lost or Drive Star?

No, I came up through Perham and only drove past Marion. The east shore of Marion looked pretty good, but I could only see one house out on the south point.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
