First truck on the ice...N. Metro

16 posts in this topic

We put the big house out on the lake today. Pulled it out with the ATV on the snowmobile trailer. Looked out on the lake and right smack dab in the middle is a pick-up truck! ooo.gifWhen I drilled for the house we had 10 solid inches. I was surprised to see that much ice. There was 8 last weekend in the same spot. And even more suprised to see that truck out there. Sorry, not me. Next weekend for sure. wink.gif

unreal, i bet those guys pet stray pitbulls too. the ice is always safe until. "i hit the one spot on the lake where the ice was thin, there was a good 18 inches everywhere else." or "someone should have told me there was a spring there." maybe "the carp were in shallow and fanning the ice with their tails, who would have known."

#1 breed for reported bites is actually the Golden Retriever. Go figure huh?

You almost wish they'd go through just so they'd learn their lesson... I'd much rather walk and live to fish another day... smile.gif

BigStevie, that's terrible. I too would like to live another day to fish, but wishing that someone would go under? I'm not going to risk driving out until I see tracks on the ice, but I'll have my kids with me. I'll probably give it another couple weeks, unitl then, I'll be getting some exercise. lol. Dave

Not a surprise, given that labs and golden retrievers are number 1 and 2 for popularity in the US, and even hold a bigger lead in households with children.

Stereotyping might not be the best thing to do...but he was only trying to be funny. I actually chuckled. Remember, he did say "stray" pitbulls.

It's obvious that on any individual dog, the way it's raised has more to do with its behavior than what breed it is. But if for some reason you want paint a breed with a broad brush, you will have a hard time with your argument that a golden retriever is a more dangerous breed than a pitbull.

If you're honest with yourself (pitbull owner or not), you will come to the conclusion that, all things being equal, the pitbull breed has a demeaner and strength that neither a lab or a retriever have. I think there's a reason dog fighting doesn't showcase labs or golden retrievers.

What is the topic of this thread anyways!

I think these guys are keeping the chatter up and keeping the post at the top of the forum, untill Ron has a chance to respond back on what lake he is talking about.

Unless he does not want us to know the name of the lake. grin.gif

      If there was a wind on Sunday there would have been waves in some areas.  We drove our trucks through 6" of water or more in some spots (many spots were dry) and had water gushing up out of some holes in some areas.  Fishing was OK for us but nothing to brag about.  We had a good fish fry and brought a meal or two home, depending on the side dishes.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas.
