Rogers man passed on

9 posts in this topic

I heard a story on the news last night regarding a individual from Rogers that had his truck falls through the ice on Leech lake over the weekend. He made it out of the water, but died walking back in the cold.

Keep his family in your prayers.

I always tell myself if I fall in there is no way im not making it out and back home, but I think your body just shuts down. No matter how strong of a will you have you can't defy nature. May the Lord be with him and his family.

Scared me for a minute when I read that. My friends Dad was going ice fishing on Leech last weekend. Found the story and the names don't match up. Very unfortunate for the family that lost him

Please keep him and his family in all your prayers. Look at every time we all go out on the ice and come home safe. Life is very fragile and it can be gone in a second without any notice. God be with his family.

Something I do EVERY time I am out. Soon after I get settled into my portable, with the heat on, and all in place. I find a moment (usualy while having my cig.) to thank god for the opertunity to be here taking in all that mother nature has to offer. I am glad to be able to be there, and I know that there are so many that are not as fortunate. I pray for god to help that family to overcome their loss. I pray nobody else will find the same fate. Be carefull everyone.

Fishsystem, you nailed that one. I will take a moment to thank the man for it all myself. R.I.P fisherman.

Just an idea, what would all you FM'ers think of getting a little fishing contest together and all proceeds going to this man's family. Again, just an idea, but we could probably get some local businesses to donate a few prizes to raffel off, charge a small fee, and see if we can get something together for the family?????? Again, just an idea, if anyone wants to get this together please let me know, this would be fishing which we do anyway, but doing it for a good reason?????? Let me know, it probably wouldnt be hard to do this.

      Good reports guys.   We were up Wednesday to Sunday.   I second you on the weather, rain and wind got old.  Not to mention bugs were terrible.  No see ums bothered us the most.      For us luckily the fishing was great.   Limited on bows and Lakers.   Had several stellar meals too.

      Hi, I'm looking for a fresh report from the North end.  Thanks!

      Refresh my memory... If we just go into Trout Lake for the day, we are not required to get a permit in advance. We just fill out the form at the portage. Is that correct?
    • Avid Angler
      Yeah that is the one.

      Thanks for the information!  Whenever I'm moving, I use a ram mount to secure my bow mount. I just got the Ulterra this spring.  I had a Terova on my last boat. I was going across the lake in 3 footers and the locking mechanism failed and the motor deployed. Ever since then, I secure it for a piece of mind.

      One of my trolling motor batteries decided to take a crap on me so it didn't have enough power to go into the wind so  that made it tough...we tried a few drifts in areas that looked good for eyes, but didn't pan out....We went to a different spot and started catching nice sized gills on the rigs so we decided to just say screw walleyes and go for gills (I could tell the gf wasn't digging the 20mph wind in the face lol). So we went to a spot I've fished in the winter and ended up catching a 20,24"...We caught them not to long before we left right in the same area.... I've never fished it in the summer before so I wasn't expecting much...The look on my gfs face when she caught the 24 was priceless though so I was happy.

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.
