Your Help Is Needed - Volunteers - UPDATED 8/28/06!

8 posts in this topic

I know there was a thread on here of people willing to help down in southern Minnesota.

Just now on the radio they were begging for volunteers. If your willing to help out some fellow MN people, you are supposed to go to the Cleavland Fire hall and bring gloves.

Thanks to all who donate their time now in a time of need!

Note from Rick 8/28/06: There is a real need for more volunteers - Le Sueur County officials want volunteers to call their hotline at (507) 357-8211.

The News last night sat NOT to go to local fire halls, because they are not set up to handle the volunteers. The News station had an 800 number to call instead. (sorry, I don't remember which station it was)

Yes, It was tornados. They were on the ground for about 26 miles. The damage is unblieveable what wind can do at 180 mph.

On monday I get to take a ride in an airplane to see the damage from the air. I hope to get some pictures

I went to help out after a tornado hit the Siren Wisconsin area and after a tornado hit an area south of Lakeville a few years back.

Its amazing what a tornado can do, but its more amzaing what a team of volunteers can do. I saw a crew of 10-15 people completely clean up a families property in a matter of hours. What would have taken the family weeks to do we did in hours.

Don't feel like you can't help, a few people getting together can do wonders for these areas. Also if you aren't phyiscally able to carry downed tree limbs or do other heavy labor give that number a call, there are usally just as many jobs that need doing that don't require heavy labor. there are usually donation centers where people can drop of donations for victims, these places need lots of volunteers as well. Just go out and do what you can. Everyone should see these things for themselves atleast once in their life.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
