I was out there on thursday afternoon.I drove out of hartys and headed up to the north end. Decided not to fish there . On the way back to more southern parts of the lake I noticed a small "buckle" and a darker section of ice that was about as wide as a road and extended from the point where the "smurf" house pretty much all the way to the east shorline. I stopped and walked over to check it out as I didnt notice it on the way to the north end and drove acrossed it. I was planning on drilling holes from west to east to find a spot I like to try but as I looked a couple hundred yards or so to the east, i swear I saw a couple of thin ice signs. They looked to be a little north of the mission farm towards the east side. I got back in the truck and went all the way to the point near the above said house to go around as much as possible. We fished out in the main lake but saw a couple of vehicles flying across the lake not too far from where the signs were.

All that being said, I guess it doesnt surprise me that someone went through. Which news had the report?

I can not believe that someone was dumb enough today to drive right up to the whole that the truck fell through last night but justice prevailed, they fell through. I'm sorry if that sounds cold hearted but DUH!

Apparently the guy drove right through the thin ice signs and fell in the same hole! He must be from Stearns County wink.gif

Well, I will be holding back on what I think is the lack of intelligence and common sense. The first guy who went through is a long tome friend and I ache for what he went through. The second guy was bombed at 10:30 in the morning. I heard he blew a .26. He has been a problem out here and elsewhere for years. I'll leave it at that, needless to say he has not been welcomed at my shop for years.

I can understand the first guy. Terrible accident. The second??????? Kinda make me say Hmmmmm. I hope he gets evrything possible thrown at him. Dui, reckless endangerment, ect. Its one thing that they put thier own lives at risk, but what about any rescue attempters. I know I could just sit and watch if I saw someone go threw. I would try to help asap. But I would be P.O.ed to find out he was bombed and put me in a situation because of stupidity.

As soon as I saw Joes open water report I told my wife some one would go thru tomorrow.

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.

      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.
    • JerkinLips
      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
