What causes the slush?

Recommended Posts

thrownflies

a New Years Greating to all. I was in the area for a week and did a little fishing in very difficult conditions. Attempted to access the hard water with the 4 wheeler and nearly barried it in the slush a few times! After fighting the slush and getting wet from head to toe we decided to spend time on the snomobiles and snow shoes rather than fishing. What causes the slush? The only thing I can think of is snow melt.

Alot of it is from the weight of the snow on the ice and it pushes water up through the cracks in the ice and when there are alot of holes punched in an area.

How bad is the slush, is it a problem on a majority of the lakes in the area? Heading up to Belle Taine soon, any idea of slush on the lake?

We have been attempting to get the fish house off the lake for the past week. The slush is over 14 inches in some areas. I have talked to people in the area that snowmobiled over last weekend and they stated every lake they went on was terrible. Those lakes mentioned, Fishhook, Long, Potato, Ice Cracking, Eagle and Island Lake north.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
