Anyone brave the wind today?

7 posts in this topic

I was going to meet delta this afternoon. And was on my way to the lake pulling my 6.5' x 10' v front. Got out of the valley and took a shot of wind so hard I nealy ended up in the ditch. Infact I was in the ditch with 2 wheels(3 if you count the houses). Got lucky and pulled it out! Got spooked, after I cleaned out my pants crazy.gif I turned around and took a slow drive back home. Scared the ....... well you know what out of me.

I braved it in a portable yesterday. It sucked! Fishing was ok. A lot of people driving on the lake, we walked out with the portable. We fished Clear lake in Waseca.

I also was on clear yesterday with a portie, well i used the truck as a wind break and it wasnt to bad. There was a few times I thought that the wind may blow us away but we were good. Marked just a ton of fish anywhere from the bottom to 5' off of the bottom. Also had the camera down and saw all types of fish, sunnies, gills, perch, bass and pike. Caught a few nice gills and of course a ton of minnie gills and sunfish. Hope it starts to pick up out there. Ice I was on was 12" and I was off of the north shore. Last Monday I was off of the west side and had 13" so there is for sure differnt depths all over, be carefull out there.

Don't feel too bad; it was nasty up north yesterday too. I didn't punch a hole.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      Is the Vermilion egg capture complete?

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.

      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
