Rogers man passed on

Recommended Posts

BartmanMN

I heard a story on the news last night regarding a individual from Rogers that had his truck falls through the ice on Leech lake over the weekend. He made it out of the water, but died walking back in the cold.

Keep his family in your prayers.

I always tell myself if I fall in there is no way im not making it out and back home, but I think your body just shuts down. No matter how strong of a will you have you can't defy nature. May the Lord be with him and his family.

Scared me for a minute when I read that. My friends Dad was going ice fishing on Leech last weekend. Found the story and the names don't match up. Very unfortunate for the family that lost him

Please keep him and his family in all your prayers. Look at every time we all go out on the ice and come home safe. Life is very fragile and it can be gone in a second without any notice. God be with his family.

Something I do EVERY time I am out. Soon after I get settled into my portable, with the heat on, and all in place. I find a moment (usualy while having my cig.) to thank god for the opertunity to be here taking in all that mother nature has to offer. I am glad to be able to be there, and I know that there are so many that are not as fortunate. I pray for god to help that family to overcome their loss. I pray nobody else will find the same fate. Be carefull everyone.

Fishsystem, you nailed that one. I will take a moment to thank the man for it all myself. R.I.P fisherman.

Just an idea, what would all you FM'ers think of getting a little fishing contest together and all proceeds going to this man's family. Again, just an idea, but we could probably get some local businesses to donate a few prizes to raffel off, charge a small fee, and see if we can get something together for the family?????? Again, just an idea, if anyone wants to get this together please let me know, this would be fishing which we do anyway, but doing it for a good reason?????? Let me know, it probably wouldnt be hard to do this.

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)
