No Wake...BSL


Recommended Posts

Just a reminder there is a NO wake enforcement on Big Sandy until the water goes down.

Have they said when it's expected to go down?

this will put quite a damper on the kids tubing fun.

they haven't really said, we need the mississippi to go down. SOme talks were ealry July depending on moisture we get in addition. Yes, this is hard for the kids to not jet ski, tube and get around the lake. Good for relaxing on the ole pontoon though, just takes a while to get somewhere.

Is this effective for the entire lake, or a distance from shore? We are heading up tomorrow and assume the resort would have the required info.

thanks.

How our us 612-ers "citiots" going to manage now that we can't zoom around recklessly in our Fast Expensive Late Model Glass boats? What an inconvenience it will be for the 12 of us to LIMIT out on ALL BSL Specie with this No_Wake deal. And on a side note whats the weather looking like for this weekend I'm thinking my New, Latest Fashion Cabala's rain Gear out-fit "head to toe" I bought this spring might be a little outdated fashion wise and was thinking about picking something a bit more trendy on the way up as we roll to BSL in our Cadillac Escalade Eddie Bauer addition SUV.... grin

I kid I kid .....my 25 horse barely gets on plane as it is ... cool

Is the Mississippi under the same restrictions? I'll be up there mid next week through the weekend and had planned on taking the hover up to play on the river.

About 6 inches and receding. But more rain in the forcast for tonite and tomorrow. Needs to be at 1217.5 and as of today its at 1218.75 or so. The Corps of Engineers website can give you the info you need to check levels and flow. As far as the Mississippi, no no-wake restrictions, but be careful of much more than usual floating debris.

Thanks Guido!

Were heading up to do some dock and lift work at various locations.

Hope to at least putt out a ways and target some Walleye if time allows~

Sounds like the Big Sandy Lake Association had some input in the DNR and Sheriffs decision to go with the NO-Wake~~

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
    • Tom Sawyer
      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
