Pressure Ridges?

13 posts in this topic

Are there any large pressure ridges out there this year? I remember the one out there last year, it ran pretty much the whole lake north to south. We are thinking about coming up next week and was wondering if any had formed yet. Thanks.

Oh, I forgot to ask...Will we need an extension? grin.giflaugh.gif j/k

Thought Kelly and Buddy kept moving them to keep everybody on their toes. wink.gif The ridges so far are real close to shore and the guys have them whipped. Couldn't believe all the work put into Hillman's road between the two weekends. Good job guys.

I wouldn't say we have the pressure ridge whipped. It's more like a standoff. crazy.gif The next warm spell and mother nature will once again show us who is really in charge. shocked.gif I burned up the clutch in my truck yesterday so I had to sit on the sidelines but Buddy and Pat Foster pushed the main road out to 6 miles. Pat is getting good enough with his new V-Plow that Buddy might even take the "Student Plower" sign off the back of Pat's truck. grin.gif

You are way behind. crazy.gif 2 clutches, 2 power steering units, 1 ring gear and pinion, 1 transfer case, 2 motor mounts and one front axel. The good part of this is that it is still early in the year so most of the list still starts with 1. smirk.gif

And you have been on the lake how long? About 17 days. You should have your own pit crew. Maybe Tigger, Duron, and Kelly. Good luck with the repairs!

Tiger, Duron and Kelly are the pit crew. smile.gif They took the clutch out of Buddy's truck last weekend but could not find a flywheel on the weekend so they are coming back to put it back together this weekend. Last year on a lovely -20 night Buddy and Tigger replaced a tranny in one of Buddy's trucks right in Hillman's parking lot. Started at 2:00AM and by sunup the truck was plowing again. ooo.gif

I've only fished URL a couple of times and I gladly paid the fee, with a smile on my face.

Not glad to hear about the mechanical problems, but sure am glad to be able to get on the lake. Thanks fellas.

Kelly, I told you you so, you should have bought yourself a real truck. Actually I think you are just like someone else I know. You probably enjoy being broke down, that way you get to vacation a little bit. grin.gif

I'll pay the $8 bucks no questions asked. There is a lot of lake to keep plowed and lots of snow to move. Is it just me or is it always windy and blowing snow up there??

If you want to complain about lake access fees, cruise over to the Mille Lacs forum. $30-40 a day for a vehicle pulling a drop wheel fishhouse. Unreal! $8 isn't so bad now, is it?

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
