Tornado on winnie

6 posts in this topic

Just got back from winnie after 6 nights of camping and fishing. What a blast! Fish were caught but not very many. The most excitement was when a tornado formed right before OUR eyes between Farley crick and Pidgeon river. We were standing on Pidgeon dam and it formed, touched down and died out when it got close to shore. It happened pretty quick but I'm sure alot of people saw it so if you did back me up on this one. First one I have ever saw and it was awesome. I'm glad it didn't come our way!!

I was fishing between Birches and High Banks when I saw it. One of the neatest things I have seen in nature. I tried to high tail it to the launch but I had spun the prop and could only go about 5 miles per hour. Good Times.

When they are on the water they are called water spouts. They die pretty quickly because the water cools it fast and the hot pressure inducing air cools. Neat and scary though.

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
