URL plow in action

13 posts in this topic

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

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.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
