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.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
