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.

      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!
