Please pull'em if you see'em!

Bonnie and I pulled three BIG fat ones out of pike bay in HooDoo area Sunday.

One huge one Monday.

Drug three to island - one to area by air base.

Odd thing is two of the four had prop and skeg marks --really fresh ones... so someone just did not take the time to think about the next guys coming round the bend.

Not good. crazy.gif

Big winds bring up old stuff and they are easy to move.

Everyone needs to be aware of this.

If you see'em, PLEASE PULL"EM!

It is the right thing to do to tie onto them and drag them to shore.

Easy to do and makes one feel good inside, as you really are doing everyone a big favor.

Plus it is kinda fun and if your handy you can make some dandy wood crafts with them when they dry up.

Just takes minutes but the motor, boat, plane or life you save may be your own.

Thanks.

Dont drag them all the way onto the shore. Bass fisherman like me love them!!!!! I always run with my motor unlocked, if I run one over, my motor bounces a little and I keep on going.

Good advice Tom! Thanks!

If you do not drag them all the way to shore they will just drift out again and become a hazzard again! frown.gif

These things have some really neat wood in them. We had one sawn and the wood had some really unique colors in the boards and it had a bit of an odor but that went away shortly after it was sawn. If you just pull it up a little, when the water comes back up again, if it does, they will just find their way back out there to do their dirty deeds another day. I suppose you could tie them off to a tree so that they would stay put.

Just thought I would bring this back to the top. I pulled in two very large "dead heads" on Sunday with the large amount of rain the Pike River dam is really moving and has dislodged many of these dead heads. They are now on my shoreline drying out. Just a word of warning when motoring through and around the Pike Bay area.

Cliff the foam finally made it down to my area on Monday morning, hope your able to now navigate the river. Probaly see you this weekend, we are going to move our household stuff to storage and try and get ready for the excavation as the tree removal will start Saturday. I have the one year permit (tree removal) and it is getting close to expire. Later Darrell.

Darrell,

Lots of new deadheads heading your way!

I still cannot get up thru the rapids to my dock! shocked.gif

Way to much current yet!

See you this weekend.

How much rain did you guys get? How much has the lake come up?

On the west side we got 4-5 inches at least. The lake is up several inches at my dock, but we could use more.

Speaking of deadheads..... does anyone know the origin of the 'permanent' one on Norwegian Bay? For years I steered clear of that area because I thought there had to be a shallow sandbar or something there, but curiosity finally prevailed so I checked it out. That old tree trunk is sitting in 25 feet of water, and it is firmly attached to the lake bed. You can't budge it an inch! How did it get there?

PortageBay: While Cliff and I were talking I believe he said 8+ inches of rain. I was born and somewhat raised in the area and both Cliff and I agree that the river and overspill on the dam has never been this fast this late in the year. When I left Monday morning the lake had come up a couple of inches, by now I am sure it's greater. Darrell.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
