Vehicle In The Drink

Every year, same area. If you are venturing down near Hunters Point on the south end of Gull, be careful. Clarence told me last night that someone from St. Cloud put one through and he was trying to figure out how to get it out.

Be safe,

Just curious, but if it happens in the same spot every year, why doesn't the sheriff put up some signs in that area like they do for lakes with aerators?

The problem area isn't hidden. It is all heaved up along the mouth of the bay. It is the same every year. The truck that went down was off track and ended up with the front end on the bottom of the channel. Sounds like Clarence is trying to figure out how to get cables to it to pull it out. I think it is more about just respecting the ice. It is unfortunate but we all need to use caution out there.

Tippman,

People are driving out of Ernies...mainly to the first break. Where I fish the was a truck 200 feet away, he came over and asked me how things were going. I asked him how much ice was over there, he said 15 inches, and I told him to look in our holes, to his surpise we were on 8-9 inches. I'm still taken my sled. this was 1-12-08

Oh. Man, people were driving that last weekend. I have always heard that spot is iffy. I'm still running the sled back and forth. Wilson Bay has always been great and I have always wanted to go in there but ice freaks me out....

Thanks Dan.

Is that spot safe to traverse by snow machine/atv?

I learned about Hunters Point the hard way, and I'm definitely not the only one. I wouldn't mind seeing a thin ice sign placed there, since it's a trouble spot every single year. Darwin has had enough fun with that spot. I'm sure Clarence doesn't mind the business though.
