Train Wreck

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any information about the 5 (or more!) rail cars that are in the water upstream of the RR trestle in Carver?

The FishinLogician and I went out last evening for a night of not catching any fish, and at the smaller RR bridge upriver from the trestle, well, it was carnage.

There is bent steel, railroad cars, steel wheels, and wood all over the busted bridge area, and 4-5 cars tipped on the embankment and or in the water. According to the sonar, there is at least one car completely under water. I'm telling you, it's quite a site, and must have been a pretty violent moment. Anyhow, I hadn't seen any posts on this so I'm not sure anyone was aware.

lol, yeah I was aware of it and I really was hoping this would be kept under wraps. I don't call it a train wreck....I call it "new structure" wink.gif

Anyways, I heard that a load of sugar was making it's way from the sugar plant and the bridge collapsed under it...cars and sugar everywhere. Might have to eat a couple of channels and see if they taste sweet.

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

          Barry is retired. I bought his boat and fished her unitl I got the 38'er. Team Crush is still using the old Whitewater.   Barry does work on my boat occasionally as the first mate.

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
