rollover crash on 72

5 posts in this topic

I posted this in the blackduck forum, figured i'd post it here too:

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

Good to hear that you didn't wind up as statistic. Your stuff..there are some real vultures out there.

I know Jim Vandekamp from Northome used to drive the ambulance from Blackduck - don't know if he still does, but he would probably know who is - 218-897-5610.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
