Access, water depth

Hi,

I was wondering with the drought and lack of any rain, how are the landings. I know down near Bemidji, some are getting so bad, that soon you will not be able to launch. Hope and pray

we get some heavy fall rains.

Friday and Saturday were real bad with the strong east wind pushing the water west and dropping the level on this side down 1 to 1 1/2 feet. Westwind had me come and clean their channell so that will be fine for the rest of this fall and next spring.

Overall I'm surprised how the lake has stayed up considering nothing has flowed into it since June. It is just the past 3 weeks or so that it has been dropping faster.

So you're saying there was a strong Eastwind at Westwinds? grin.gif It's amazing how big that lake actually is that a strong wind can drop the lake level over a foot.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
