Truck through on Chisago

3 posts in this topic

If you are heading out on Chisago do not use the plowed road going out from the west side. Went there Saturday and a truck had put the front end in. Large hole all the way through. Hole was the size of a small car. Me and another guy gave pulling them out a try but no luck it was really in there. If you drive stay off the road. I talked to DNR to mark it but not sure if they did. Any way be safe and know where you are going.

A buddy of mine went in just south of the public access Saturday afternoon. Drive the channel to get to Chisago and watch for the plowed road. There is a heave running the distance of the plowed road. He apparently did not see it and his front tire went in. A blue Chevy. Maybe some of you may have seen the excitement. I had a red Ford with white tool boxes on the sides of the box. It took quite a few good jerks to finally get him out of there. His heart was racing pretty good. Adrenaline for all was flowing. When the front tire went in, we tried to assess the situation and he pulled out a shovel all along side the passenger side of his truck the shovel went all the way through. If the truck had not been hung up on the ice I am sure it would be under water. Becareful out there! Thanks to the guys who stopped to help out. I hope no feelings were hurt when we denied assistance. I did not want to put anyone else in harms way. We went on to try and catch some fish, a few sunnies were caught. I will post some pictures of the truck a little later today if they get sent to me. If only we had a video camera.

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
