This happened over pine. Can we get some specifics? How far over pine were they? Were they sticking to Adrians road or were they off on their own? I am going over pine tomorrow. Am always concerned when I drive on the ice. How much should my level of concerned be raised?

That has high levels of SUCK.

Glad to hear nobody was hurt and they got the rig out.

It was not my friend. I guess I dont even know the guys who's vehicle it was but it is my buddy's frind and he got the pic's via text. It happened 1.5 miles over pine and that is all I know. Sounds like a crack opened up and they hit it. Not sure if it was on the marked road or not.

Sorry guys.

Thanks for the 411 Steve. Driving around when it's dark one has to be really cautious.

:)Roads over Pine Island are open to traffic - these guys are back out fishing thanks to a lot of hard work from the Adrian's crew. A fluke of bad luck to have hit that broken patch of ice.

Will check in with you Steve on Monday afternoon. Going to need some shiners. But you'll probably be fishing instead of working..... smile Can't blame you at all.

I am the guy you see in the picture. My friend Leighton Straight and I were watching a movie when Brian from Adrians called him to help. He was told that the back tired of the truck had fall in through a crack in the ice. We put on tennis shoes and light coats and headed that way. On the way there we felt the ice give way once and that was intense!!!! I ended up getting out of the truck and pointing out the main problems in the ice. Leighton has a huge truck that can make things like this happen. You may have seen that huge truck out there with the big plow. That is his and it is a real life saver!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, the truck did come out just fine and worked out great!!!!!!! If you ever have problems call Adrians and they can get a hold of Leighton. If he is up there he will always help!! I am almost always there as well.

Good luck fishing and stay on top!!!!!!!

Can someone from Adrians comment on this so we know what to look for out there that may put us in the same danger. I was there the whole week earlier and had plenty of ice. Thanks

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      Mmmmmmm~~~~ here's one for ya! For years we have been trying to get our fave Mayfly Rafts & Spikes into a booth at The State Fair. Rafts = ~~~  Honey Waffle coated with Dark Chocolate Glaze n Peanut Butter then sprinkled with Frozen Real Maple Syrup dipped Mayflys.  To die for. Spikes  =  ~~~ Deep Fried Triple Thick Cut of F&D Smoked Bacon dipped into Smoked flavored Pancake Batter an dipped in Maple Syrup then rolled in pile of frozen Hickory smoked MayFlys. Both Killer Pak~ons seved on a stick or in a Deep Fried Walleye Belly Fillet. Power good experience that takes you places you never been before'!! : )   Keep on rocken!   T

      I bet one of those little cans of cat food would work too.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn.

      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.
