Snow??

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone in the McGregor area advise if you got any of the snow in this weekends storm? Haven't been out snowmobiling on/around Big Sandy yet this winter!

According to my neighbor they got 7 or 8 inches.

(his personal estimate)

I was at my cabin this morning on Bellhorn Bay and it got about a foot there, and there's probably more now. It's light though, so there was no problem getting in and out of there.

Sure wish we had been able to get up North before the snow hit and taken a snow day from work tomorrow and spent the weekend snowmobiling!!!!!!!! Instead we wimped out with the weather forecast and stayed in the cities and shoveled out. No fun!

Hopefully next weekend....except my husband has to work on getting the well pipes defrosted first before we can go snowmobiling!!

Took us over 3 hours to get the house off Big Sandy yesterday. Ski's were sunk down about 8 inches. Lots of chipping away. This snow did not help either with all the weight. Hopefully it also won't hinder any March trips. Could get pretty sloppy..

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
