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.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
