Driving out on Gull Lake

1 post in this topic

Yesterday a couple of regulars and I noticed that a couple of trucks had driven out to their shacks out on the "hole" and the reef. I even heard that someone had plowed out from their property on the southwest side to the reef. So, with two trucks as back up, I took my F250 Superduty and went down to my access here to begin plowing. 15 feet from right front wheel fell into a pressure crack! We worked on it in 15 below weather for a few hours and just couldn't get it out. Thanks to Bogart's Towing in Blackduck for finally winching me out.

So, my access is screwed for a few days until I can get my old tractor running and fix and blade that crack area out. The crack runs nearly the entire length of my beach and access areas.

So, please, I ask that no one tries to drive out from here until I give the go ahead. I'm sure it's going to take me a few days to get the ice to reset down there. Also we've noticed that, despite the cold, there is a lot of slush under the snow at all areas of the lake.

Be careful out there!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
