somebody dump a sled in by the river?

7 posts in this topic

saw a couple sheriff's cars and a DNR truck out by the downtown acces today around 3:30, and there was a pretty fresh looking hole by the river inlet with sled tracks leading up to it. Did someone drop one in? some of those people are getting pretty close to that river with trucks and wheel houses.

I was in town Tuesday picking up groceries and thought exactly the same thing - some people are really pushing it.

I saw the same thing yesterday. I'm not sure what happend either. Regardless, I don't care if there's two feet of ice by the channel, you won't catch me too close with that current nearby. There's quite a village out there between Valvoline and Ace.

The one in the paper occured last Friday, and they pulled the snowmobile out of the water on Monday. I never saw anything in the paper about whether anything happened the previous week.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
