This forum is awfully quiet! Nobody have anything to say? Come on, there has to be something to type about. How about seeing how many non posters we can get to try to post something here just to give everyone something to read. So, all you guys and gals that are out there reading everything that is ever put up here, but never ever post anything, now is your opportunity to just chime in to let us know that you are there.

7,

We are still out here!

Waiting for ice and something to write about! tongue.gif

Getting all of my ice gear ready for the hard water season.

The new house is ready to roll, now all we need is around 8" of ice!

Hope that you had a good deer season.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Cliff

Nice sized deer!

I ended up getting two bucks. An 8 pointer and a big forkhorn.

Our hunting party of 7 ended up with 7 bucks.

12 degrees here this morning! The shallow bays are starting to make safer ice now! It won't be long now! laugh.gif

Zero in Embarrass this morning!

Looks like Frazer bay is still open but I am froze all the way across to the north shore. The are a few puddles of open water but it does look encouraging. One of the dogs fell through the ice this morning on the boat ramp so watch those pets. Not deep enough to be a problem but a little more ice and he could have gotten out there far enough to be a problem.

Have a great turkey day.

Nice pictures Sled, your photos are always well shot.

Yukon,

Why did you make all that snow and sprinkle it around just for the picture. Don't tell me you have that much snow up there. Nice Deer! How is the ice on Vermillion?

Cliff, thanks for the fishing advice the other weekend. We didn't spend as much time as I would have liked fishing. Coming back in from the cabin was fun though as we plowed through 1/2 ice to the boat house.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
