First truck on the ice...N. Metro

Recommended Posts

RonZych

We put the big house out on the lake today. Pulled it out with the ATV on the snowmobile trailer. Looked out on the lake and right smack dab in the middle is a pick-up truck! ooo.gifWhen I drilled for the house we had 10 solid inches. I was surprised to see that much ice. There was 8 last weekend in the same spot. And even more suprised to see that truck out there. Sorry, not me. Next weekend for sure. wink.gif

unreal, i bet those guys pet stray pitbulls too. the ice is always safe until. "i hit the one spot on the lake where the ice was thin, there was a good 18 inches everywhere else." or "someone should have told me there was a spring there." maybe "the carp were in shallow and fanning the ice with their tails, who would have known."

#1 breed for reported bites is actually the Golden Retriever. Go figure huh?

You almost wish they'd go through just so they'd learn their lesson... I'd much rather walk and live to fish another day... smile.gif

BigStevie, that's terrible. I too would like to live another day to fish, but wishing that someone would go under? I'm not going to risk driving out until I see tracks on the ice, but I'll have my kids with me. I'll probably give it another couple weeks, unitl then, I'll be getting some exercise. lol. Dave

Not a surprise, given that labs and golden retrievers are number 1 and 2 for popularity in the US, and even hold a bigger lead in households with children.

Stereotyping might not be the best thing to do...but he was only trying to be funny. I actually chuckled. Remember, he did say "stray" pitbulls.

It's obvious that on any individual dog, the way it's raised has more to do with its behavior than what breed it is. But if for some reason you want paint a breed with a broad brush, you will have a hard time with your argument that a golden retriever is a more dangerous breed than a pitbull.

If you're honest with yourself (pitbull owner or not), you will come to the conclusion that, all things being equal, the pitbull breed has a demeaner and strength that neither a lab or a retriever have. I think there's a reason dog fighting doesn't showcase labs or golden retrievers.

What is the topic of this thread anyways!

I think these guys are keeping the chatter up and keeping the post at the top of the forum, untill Ron has a chance to respond back on what lake he is talking about.

Unless he does not want us to know the name of the lake. grin.gif

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
