URL plow in action

When the new road was punched into the Crappie Highway I got some shots of the URL plows rolling on Hillmans road. This is why they ask you to stay away from the road bank and give them the right of way, and this was throwing against a good wind.

Bet those chunks would raise heck on the wax job or portable canvas. \:o

I see a new backround in my future.

A may be getting a bit older and little "rounder" every year but I can still run like the wind. \:\)

Its fun for the first five minutes then you realize it is just a sick and twisted way to torture trucks and your body.

I think you took that the wrong way. I used that pics as my desktop. I'd hate to imagine what really happens to those trucks.

Great photo. In order to enhance the intensity of the next photo, the plow truck driver should be wearing a "Jason" mask.

how far are those ice chunks flying 50ft.? the shape my portable material is in right now those chunks would have no problem making skylights, seeing that i can see right through my tent. I finally broke down the other night and ordered a new voyager tent from clam, cant wait to get that put on in this weather.

You look at that and then realize........Maybe that access fee is not so bad after all ;\) It could be your truck trying to run over all that snow ;\)

With that plow the big chunks will land up to 70 feet away. Some plows are shaped to throw the snow high so the wind catch's the snow and carries it away and some like this one are shaped to throw for distance. Your portable wouldn't just have holes, it would be flattened. At 40 feet another vehicle will have it's windows broken, mirrors, windshield wipers and grill torn off and the body panels caved in.

No but I am.

This truck even though it was not very pretty had:

A full grill

crack free windshield

no major dents or dings just a little rust.

Afterwards the window went, both mirrors blew out, the dash busted, hood would not open, grill destroyed, raditior leaked, passnger door knocked out of alignment and that was from a plow making a corner where they have little power and don't throw the snow very far. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. My fault because I didn't communicate with the other drivers about who was going where.

10 bucks is very a reasonable fee. If only for the peace of mind an established road gives a fisher person.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
