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.

      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.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      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?
    • HugeHogChaser
      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.
