My Uncle lives on Stuart and lost a big tree as well. sounds like the narrows bewteen the two lakes got hit hard as well.

I think the brunt of the storm was from the OT Campground to BalMoral - hundreds of trees down, docks mangled and boats overturned. Been without power most of the day. I'm sure anybody with some free time and a chain saw would be more than welcome.

Holy cow. I had no idea there was a storm this bad.
I called my Dad tonight to ask if he had heard from anyone on East Battle about damage to our place. He said he hadn't heard anything, but is gonna be calling people to see what may have happened around the north shore.

Wow! That was some storm that rolled through just before 4am. Looks like we caught the southern edge of it on South Turtle.

I hope everyone came through it okay.

Wind hit pretty good around Johnson, Long Lk. area and around Stalker too. Trees down,flag poles, a big jungle gym blew over and I guess there was damage at the new golf course on the west end of Stalker Lk. I think it wrecked a couple boat canopies too.

Dad called north, and the north shore of East Battle got it too.
We have one tree down. Missed the pole barn luckily. Neighbor has a big oak on their cabin. Sounds like a lot of people with trees down.
Grandpa went down to the farm south of Vining, and said a tree was across the Minimum-maintenance road going into the property, so no idea how bad it may be up in there.
Crud.

The storm took down a couple trees at my place, and that's all I can see so far. I helped a friend remove trees near Balmoral last night, and this area was hit the hardest. Definite straightline winds. I think the golf course lost 200+ trees??

Juice - You are gonna new a work crew to bail out that blue boat, LOL. Last time I tried to move it a bit I dang near got a hernia.

ChuckN - That's a shame about Balmoral. Lots of wonderful oaks on that course. I wonder if the big snaggly cottonwood that guards the 18th green survived?

The dang water level on S. Turtle shot right back up. It is only a 1/4 inch below the high point from this year, and is 9.5 inches above the low point that was on May 5.

I saw Balmoral on the news last night.
What a bummer. It looked awful.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off

      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      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.

         Couple from prospecting some virgin ice, not a hole in site. Mission accomplished!         .....

      Just got off the ice and there were several cars driving around.  We ended up with 1-2 inches. We found a few willing cats today.   Enough to get a head start for the fish fry.  Keep posted as we did not find much for cats in the methhole area.
