Getting stuck in the snow

10 posts in this topic

Ok, what is the record for time spent shoveling and towing your truck out of snowbanks this weekend. We were on Mille Lacs a total of 42 hours from Friday to Sunday and spent 4.5 hours getting our trucks and fish houses out of drifts, etc.

I parked in the sweet spot out of the wind and only spent about 10 minutes shoveling. Not sure if the "record" is the longest, or the shortest, but I should be contending for the shortest.

It would make me feel better if it was the "shortest". My 13" 1.1 pound perch started in 4th place at the Hunters Point/Portside Perch Extravaganza, but by the time the weighing was over I fell out of the money to 12th.

We had 5 trucks out their Sunday morning not a problem getting out. cool.gif Can't say much for a minivan that we pulled on Saturday, just so he could pull right back in the same spot to get stuck again. Then it just gave us something to laugh about. smirk.gif

We had 3 trucks out there and 2 fish houses. The problem wasn't so much the new snow but the old snow where fish houses were parked previously that you couldn't avoid. I was never so happy to be off of there Sunday morning.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
