Vehicle Down!!

7 posts in this topic

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???

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
