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 live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
