I believe Curt Quesnell told us that it will have been in the drink for a month today (monday).

It's not every day you can tell someone you were out fishing by the truck!

How are they going to retrieve it that far off shore. There isn't a cable long enough. Dragging it back will not work. Can they float it with some inner tubes under the frame?? Going to be something to see happen.... Kaz

Maybe they can use those planks that are hanging out in the back of the box. I guess they probably intended to use them to bridge open water in the first place.

It looks like the truck is on a nice shallow hump, I would cast off the hood in the evening and see what you can catch. You could store your minnows in the back of the truck.

Really, it was pretty banged up for sure. We head out on Sat. and saw that and I said well there is something you don't see everyday. So the joke for us was where did you fish today "by the pickup". It is going to take one big wench and cable system to get that out.

I wonder if they tried pulling it in? It looks like there's a chain connected near the rear axle. I don't recall seeing the floating jug tied up to the front last weekend either.

I was up there a couple weeks ago for the end of walleye fishing and we stopped in at wheelers point for a drink. The bartender told us that they were going to have a boat from canada come down with a crain on it to lift it out. dont know if that is true or not seems a little shallow.

I have never seen anyone spear a truck before.. The front end is busted up good.. I wonder who ever owns this would sell those rims and tires at a water damaged price.

Right at the mouth of the river on 4 mile bay, on the west edge of the river channel.

Not sure what the laws are but don't they have to retrieve it by a certian number of days before big fines happen? I'm not tree hugger but what a enviromental hazard.

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
