Vehicle Down!!

Recommended Posts

LwnmwnMan2

I was in Chisago today (Friday - March 23) and the cops were buzzing around. Took the back 'frontage' road along the park, through town and noticed the firetrucks at the park, right south of the skatepark in Chisago.

Looked out onto Chisago Lake and there was 'vehicle' in the water about 1/3-1/2 way on the plowed road out to the A-frame.

Almost looked from where I was to be what Hovermn has in his avatar.

Anyone hear anything??

The stragest part, I parked on the road that heads to the lake from in town, not the access in the channel.

There's a thin ice sign there, and there's tire tracks in the mud going to the lake, but the shoreline was open water, so I'm not sure how they got on the ice.

Only thing I can think of, is that they got on at a different location and were just driving down the road.

From what I heard earlier today is that some older gentelman from Fridley put his truck in on Chisago.

I talked to an older dude last thursday driving on the lake that was from Fridley... I told him I didn't think the ice was safe for driving any more... HE said, he knew what he was doing.. Guys got to wonder if its the same dude... Hope he is alright.

The vehicle I saw was white, pretty square it looked like.

Also looked like an older guy, walking hunched over to meet the rescue personnel....

You would think by the age of 60+ you would have learned not use that phrase. I learned it at about 12.

Report in the paper this week was a gentleman from Fridley that put the vehicle in. They're waiting until after ice out to get the vehicle out...... Musta been the same guy???

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
