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 have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
