Park it, don't drive! Please!

3 posts in this topic

I have been out on Buffalo the last few nights, and well on Saturday, no spots at the NE to park, so I parked on the edge of the ice, and felt "kind of" alright with it. Shallow atleast. Comming in though, found a few trucks by mine and I "should've known". Not complaining...there was no parking available. However, on Sunday there was a man in his Suburban that asked how the ice was and I told him "a good 8" with a couple inches of re-freeze." and he said "so there is enough to drive this thing across". I told him NO! Ice varies this year quite a bit. So his respones was "but I live on the lake!" OKAY THEN!!

Please don't think like that people, I wouldn't even take another guys word right now as far as having enough ice to drive across. Find out for yourself first before you head out there. I could have said "oh yeah, no problem" and wathched this guy go down. Good for him I am not like that.

Not to worry. As someone who passes time watching Buffalo Lake from my dining room, I call the act of the first trucks heading onto the ice "natural selection", grin.gif becuase the first people are always too early! Some get lucky, some don't! But then again I know people who's auto policy covers dunking, and they don't seem very afraid... shocked.gif

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
