Truck go through on Fish??

Recommended Posts

HondaRider07

I went out on Fish Lake this afternoon and when you go off the dam/launch past HiBanks and take a left over by the shore, it looks like a truck or something broke through the ice. The road is all slushy and looks broken up over about a 25 ft span before you get to the ridge. Had my wife with me and didn't want to risk breaking though with her in the truck so we went back in front of the landing and dropped lines. Does anyone know if this is the case, and someone broke through this weekend? I had been up there new years day and took that road over to the islands across the lake with no problems...

I didn't see anything on the news websites. This seems like an odd area to go through this time of year at least with a vehicle. Keeping safety in mind did you get a good look at it? Was there actually open water? It could have been an area where a permanent house was sitting. Often times they'll leave sunken areas when they sit in one spot for a long time.

No, my buddy went through there after me and he got out and walked up and said it did look like something broke through. It was on a plowed road, and i've driven the road before(no house on it). I had my wife and didn't want to risk driving off the road and getting stuck and having her get mad, so we turned around. my buddy did however drive around it and went onto the islands we usually fish. Fish has about 20" of ice, and I don't see how something could have broke though. I'm wondering if someone punched a hole on the road to fish, and water just came up through the hole filling the road. then the wind blew snow onto the water causing the slushy or broken ice appearance....

The watery area was on a well plowed/maintained ice road to the left of the dam launch. I've been driving it for a few weeks, and have never seen a house sitting on it. If you drive off the launch, and keep going left it was on the road that backtracked near shore, then hopped the ridge that crosses the lake.

Someone sent me a pic of a truck that was supposed to have gone through on the south access.

not sure what caused it, but someone walked to the edge and put a 5' spud bar down it, now that's one heck of a slush hole you wouldn't want to drive into

It was more than likely a major collection of water and slush. About 5 yrs ago we sat and watched a truck heasding for the blue max totally pushing water in front of it. We were at the eagles nest and couldn't believe what we were watching.

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale
