5 posts in this topic

I heard through the grape vine that there was a drug bust out on the lake in the past week or so, and that a big icecastle house and a couple trucks were confiscated, anyone else hear about this? or have any specific details?

If true that pretty sad, probably cooking meth or something dumb like that.

Sadly enough, this has gone on for years. Back in the mid-80's we (Sheriff's Dept.) cracked down on "party houses" on the metro lakes, including an operation on one of the major bodies in the area that netted 36 arrests in one evening. It involved several metro departments in order to monitor all the known entrances and egresses from the lake, our narc unit (with a van on the ice) and a bevy of patrol sleds. Even the Civil Air Patrol had some wings in the sky, since the drug and booze (for minors) were being transported/delivered occasionally by private planes landing on the lake. Didn't happen this particular evening, but the narc guys monitored and ID'ed the party houses and between the deps on sleds and a handful of unmarks from the local municipalities, simultaneous "knock & enters" brought the activity to a halt.

If this is going on out at Pearl, I'm tickled someone is being proactive; we don't need these nutjobs jeapodizing our families (and property). And they ultimately do.

That's great news. I was on jury duty in Stearns Co. last week and a quasi-illegal was convicted of selling meth to a stoolie in Melrose. Funny that the stoolie clammed up when it was his turn to testify. We later found out that the pusher had made a plea agreement but it was overturned and he had to go on trial. Guess that's why he didn't seem too surprised by the verdict although it was a pretty clearcut case.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
