remember when we used to be able to put an old car on the ice and buy tickets for a prize to see who would be closest on timing,for when it would fall thru

I just hope we get some good spring moisture to get the lakes and rivers up

Prime we would push a boulder out each year,in what we thought was the same spot(no GPS then),eventually the towns people would put in 2 bucks each at the local wattering hole,winner take all!It started with me and one neighbor thinkin bout makin a fishin reef.Been back and now with sonar bout a 30 ft area in 9 ft of water with barron bottom a bunch of rocks.20 years of puttin them out.BIG ones used a D-4 cat to get em 1/2 way out then a plow vechile.Decent fishin area now. grin.gif

Sparcebag, that is a good idea but I have to add its illegal to put material into the lake. I'm just passing it on and don't want you to get into trouble. If you were to take it out each year I'm sure it'd be fine but just becareful.

I was just in Florida and man that open water looked good. Can't wait for the ice to go though. I want to see if my near shore modifications bring in some spawners (yeah it was illegal, but who cares if you steal some cattails and bullrushes from down the shore and plant them on yours. Oh, and I forgot the lily pads too).

      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.

      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!

      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.
