A VERY strange sight

7 posts in this topic

I was out sledding on Saturday and I was on the trail near rural Lake Park when I came up on a man city in a very nice Chevy pickup near a set of railroad tracks. I thought it was strange -- he was smiling and waived at me to say he was fine and sitting on the road about five feet away from him was a propane tank.

I thought that was strange too.

Thought about telling somebody (cops) but forgot by the time I got to Lake Park.

Said on the Forum website that the guy was killed by a train Saturday. He was also the guy that owned a business that burned down in Perham just a week ago.

Strange.

I read that story in the Forum today too. Are you sure it's the same guy??

What's the deal with the propane tank??? If you are planning on parking your truck on the tracks when an east bound coal train is coming, what do you need the propane for??

That guy was a sponser here at FM for a while, with his cactus resort.

100 percent sure. I knew him -- sorta from Perham where the in-laws are from.

Talked to the police -- We missed it by 10 minutes -- not kidding.

They do not know where the propane tank is.

Strange.

I just want to say If anybody thinks of doing something like this please,please talk to somebody. life is

short enough. Family ,Friends and if nothing else a nice sunrise on a frozen lake can cure anything. I'm not sure why or how people get to this point but it is not something loved ones can always recognize. So please, if you ever feel like life is to much, ask for help. YOU WILL GET HELP IF YOU ASK FOR IT ,and there is no shame in asking for it.Everybody gets down every now and then.We are here for a reason and that reason is not known to us until God takes us home. My thought's and prayers are with the family.I'm sorry for your lose and you are not alone..........

I agree with you guys 100 percent.

I also feel very bad for the Train conductors. They are away from their families for many days at a time. Can be very tough, i would think. Then you have somebody that does this...

I talked to a guy that knew the train driver -- said he saw his eyes staring at him the entire time ... that would be tough.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
