crash on 72

6 posts in this topic

I was the passenger in a single-vehicle rollover crash north of blackduck on 72 thursday morning around 9am. mercury mountaineer rolled at least 3 times and landed upright. both of us walked away in-tact (thank god for seatbelts).

a woman stopped and helped us out - talked to 911 operator and drove us into the clinic in blackduck. I just wanted to see if anyone knows who she is so I could thank her by phone or something. also, the EMT who took us from blackduck to bemidji was great - her name was molly. the driver was good also but i didnt catch his name. anyone have any contact info for any of those?

we had been on our way to red lake. some of our fishing junk was strewn across the ditch. we saw the cops on the way to the scene a few minutes after we left with the woman. the cops picked up all the stuff and put it in the vehicle- but when we were released and got back to the vehicle, at the lot to which it had been towed, a marcum flasher and strikemaster lazer auger (minus gas tank) were missing. apparently somebody decided to grab some "free" stuff. obviously, that wasn't real high on our list of concerns, but somewhat irritating nonetheless.

anyhow, we both made it out OK - sore backs and a few minor cuts, but that seems to be the worst of it. if anyone has any info on any of the great people who helped us out, or happens to see a newer black strikemaster lazer (2hp 8inch, 2 blades) without a gas tank, shoot me a message!

thanks,

Joe

Hey Joe, glad to hear you guys are alright. I been in a couple roll overs and they ain't fun.

Check out the Leech Lake forum, someone found an auger on the highway down by Leech. You never know, maybe it's yours.

Goodluck !

      Sorry for the late response.  I was on the ice Friday-Monday fishing with our pro staff group.  We fished each morning for tuilibees and fished a few lakes and wow can you see a difference between lakes!  5 miles away and you go from average size of 19" to 13".  My buddy Scott who produced the video and the skinny guy is using I think a Wicked 13 Long stem reel which a spring broke in the bail this weekend.  I am using either a 13 FreeFall or a 13 Black Betty 6061 inline reel.  I like the in line reels better then the spinning reels and I wont be switching back for my ice fishing gear.  When its warmer out I like the FreeFall because I can drop the line with just one hand and not have to worry about hitting the button to drop it and then reel in some to get it to lock into place.  Scott I think is using a 32" St Croix rod, he switches between a light and a medium rod depending on his mood lol and I'm using a Yogi Custom Rod 32" Medium Light (Blue) and my other rod is a 32" medium rod (Black) I switch between them so its hard to keep them straight.  If your looking for a good rod he does 100% custom rods so you pick action tip eyelets colors string handles its pretty awesome and if your looking at the top end ones you get off the shelf you are paying about the same for a custom rod from him.     Fish were very hit and miss this weekend.  We caught a few in a few different holes but nothing great but yesterday we tried a new hole and instantly started getting them on top of the ice.  Will be trying that spot this weekend if I can get out on the ice.  I hate fishing solo just in case something happens out there and my fishing partner is heading Devils Lake for a week.  We had a ton of guys come by and see what we were doing that were "Seasoned Tuilibee Fisherman" that were using the 3" daredevil and told us what we were using wasn't going to be working get frustrated and leave because we were putting fish topside and they were only getting sniffers.  Our rig that has worked great for us is a 1/8 oz Kastmaster (Gold, Silver, or Rainbow Trout) with about 14-16" of line drop to a 4 or 5 mm tungstun jig (White, Pink, or Silver) loaded with wax worms.

      Go to Fleet or the Cabala's and look at all their small tackle, hunting or shooting cases.
