Kelly-P di they find that guy?

9 posts in this topic

Kelly, I was sitting there at the bar when you guys bolted out the door to see if you could assist in that last truck going down. When you left there were two guys on the ice and one guy missing. What happened? Did they find him? Just bums me out every time I hear someone makes a decision like that and takes others along for their death ride. Hope all came out Ok. Just curious.... Also, your hard effort has been appreciated by all who have crossed your path. You are gaining a very commendable reputation and I for one would like to thank you for all the hard work that's made it possible for me to experience some of the best fishing memories I've ever had to date. Hope to buy you a drink you at the WW when we get some soft water.

About a mile from where we thought the vehicle had gone through two guys in a portable flagged us down that had heard someone yelling and pointed us in the right direction. He was wet but O.K.. smile.gif
This group had their portable blow away in the wind way down at Benz's road and chased it across the lake for miles. The portable went across the ridge and they tried to drive right across behind it. They were about 2 miles west of the bridge.
The other two vehicles both drove into the pressure ridge in the DAYLIGHT. One was heading back to shore for more bait but drove 1 1/2 miles in the wrong direction. The other vehicle just thought it looked safe. frown.gif

Glad to hear it. I still don't understand the overreaction by the Sherriffs Dept. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but that ice is still good for another week yet at least. Did you guys pull the bridge yet? What happens if I go out there in my pickup anyway? Aside from not getting any support from the local Sherriff. Will they ticket? Do they have the right to do that? Seems to me I have a right to decide what is responsible for me and what is not.

Eyewitness,,, what they can do is ticket you for "reckless endangerment" but whether or not they do is pretty much a judgement call by them.

Kelly Is that the guy who went down with 4 others and only three came up at first? I had run up to westwinds and reported this I think it was this guy, but from what I understood there were two trucks in the party, didn't know they were chasing a portable. I had one of the guy tell me to run up and get someone out there. I hope that this is who you found. Too bad about the sheriifs.

Phish on

Big brother strikes again!? I'm sick to death of authorities telling us what we can and can not do. GEEEZZZZZ I mean why not leave that decision up to the guys that are out there everyday moving bridges, plowing roads and generally keeping tabs on conditions.
I can't imagine the sheriffs dept. not responding to a call for help on the lake but I suppose now at least they can say 'I told ya so' after the fact

The one that went down that you are talking about was one vehicle with 4 people. One person got out right away and jumped to the far side of the pressure ridge. The other 3 came out on the south side of the ridge and were picked up right away. the "missing" person was walking down the north side of the ridge.
Today they were there when their vehicle was brought up. They were not chasing their portable, just looking for it.
I hear the Sheriffs Dept. could start writing tickets. I assume that also means that in years to come they will have time for officers to respond for anyone in trouble on the lake.

Glad to hear he got out, the guy I talked to told me they didn't know if he did or not. Still too bad about the cops.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
