Somebody went through- Moore Lake

7 posts in this topic

in Fridley. Went to check it out during my lunch break. Apparently, somebody has been missing for 5 days, and some gloves, hat, fishing license was found on the ice. There is a chopper, news crew, rescue workers everywhere.

Thats too bad. Ice is never safe, be careful out there everybody.

I just talked to a guy at work and he said the news this morning was saying it was a possible suicide.

Always a horrible story when someone looses their life on the ice. Correct me if I'm wrong, but but I think Moore Lake usually has an area of thin or no ice due to an aerator. All the more reason to be careful out there...

There is an aerator and its clearly marked with thin ice signs. When they fish out there they try to get as close to the open water as possible and its really dangerous when they do that.

My grandma's brother passed away in that lake when they were swimming out there 55 years ago. It happened in the summer though, just became overwhelmed or something.

Never a good story when someone loses a life on the ice.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
