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.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
