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.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
