7 posts in this topic

I took this pic on rocky reef this afternoon. I was watching this guy drive off the plowed road about 300 yards. I was gonna go over and offer a tow but another crack opened up 50ft behind him. Luckly he found a tow service that was willing to come out on the ice..

Yes everybody needs to stay on the roads . We were out by Shermans and went of the road and fell into a hole were a perm. used to be luckily we had a strap and somebody offered to help get us out. So if youre out their be careful becuase its a major drop. and even worse we caught perch two weeks ago but this trip didnt catch hardly any. Good luck to everyone but be careful.

DrillinHolz, were you the guy we talked to when we were leaving the ice yesterday.Thats my sled in the picture.Did they get out ok,he said his son in law was coming to try and pull him out and I didn't think that was going to work he was resting on the frame,I think a tow truck was his only option.Hope you did better than we did.We are planning another trip in 2 weeks if the ice holds.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
