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.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
