Bad River ice

4 posts in this topic

I took the dogs for a walk to check out the ice on the rum in anoka at fair grounds. I have caught decent crappies in the summer and wanted to see how the ice was in a place that I thought would hold them. I know River ice is really sketchy so I stuck in the 3ft water depths. Snow mobiles have been running up and down the river. Anyways my Choc Lab took a plunge 10ft or so ahead of me, luckily he came back up the same hole. After making sure that my 7mo old choc didn't take the same plunge I concentrated on not going in myself and hooked both leashes together and was tossing them at my little buddy hoping that he would grab on. He was struggling so hard to get out by himself that he wouldn't grab my rope. Finally he fell back in and while swimming in his hole grabbed the leash and pulled him out. Moral of the story you all no it, there is know such thing as safe ice, and protect your dogs. I was kinda mad at myself the dog loves water frozen or not he will go in but the suprise startled him, I am glad he just came back up and didn't get caught under the sheet.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
