Where was Amy Senser when this happened?

Should be if it's not.

Yuck.

couple things come to mind.

Shouldn't they be able to tell if the boat was aluminum or glass by the damage left behind?

If I was the sheriff up there. I would have closed the launches until a deputy could be posted at each launch to inspect boats for damage, then I'd go looking on lifts and boats at docks.

And, if I witnessed it from my own boat, I would have followed them.

Hope the guy heals well.

Yeah what a terrible ordeal... I hope they find the people that did this so justice can be served.

very possible that someone yanked it out of the lake through someones yard to avoid the launch.

in doing some more reading, sounds like they did go dock to dock looking, and they kinda implied they were looking at all the launches (the obvious place to check)

I think they have pretty much determined that it was a glass boat. Also, this is a very populated recreational lake with a LOT of private launches that cabin owners have so it's not as easy as just closing the public accesses.

From what I've heard this couldn't have been a cheap boat and one would think that eventually it would get turned in as an insurance claim, if not, whoever it is would really take it in the shorts to either have it fixed or just eat it and junk it.

Had friends on the lake last night and they said the sheriff is still on the lake searching all the docks/lifts. No doubt that boat is in deep hiding by now. Just sad. Very lucky that nobody was killed.

I'm very surprised the boat hasn't been located yet. Its only a matter of time before one of the people on the boat either can't take the guilt or slips up. I'm sure every boat repair place in the tri-state is aware of the incident. Only problem I could see is that there is a lot of money on that lake and if whoever hit it has plenty they'll just scrap the boat.

My fatherinlaw lives on big c in the summer by the access by the Landing and one night he seen the sherriffs dept escorting a guy and his boat to the landing where the sherriffs dept had his trlr hooked to their truck and hauled them both away. Thats all he seen and heard of as of now and that was a week or so ago.

Thats good for the people that got tested but bad for the sheriffs dept and the family that got hit. I sure hope they find the ones responsible. The boat was they tested was only from a few houses down from my fatherinlaws place.

      Earlier this morning it looked like Vermilion froze over last night but now I see open water on the Hibbing Point webcam.  The strong winds must have opened the lake back up.  Tonight the temps drop to single digits and the wind dies down by 5am so it will freeze over tonight.  Expecting 1-2" of snow on Friday with high winds so hopefully the snow will blow off the new ice.  Saturday-Thursday looks very cold with no more snow, so the main lake should get a solid freeze.  Some are ice fishing in Stuntz Bay already, and some braver than I may walk out from McKinley Park this weekend.  I'm going to wait until the end of next week to venture out, although it will be very cold.

      On the south end... Ice is forming, but other than some back bays, it isn't ready quite yet.  Mother Nature is on track.  Some resorts are making the prediction of December 10th for day houses being out, give or take, but at this point, this isn't set in stone and time will tell.  There are cold temps in the forecast and things look optimistic.  Many resorts and outfitters have been checking ice conditions.  When the time is right, resorts and outfitters will slowly and safely begin marking and grooming trails for ice travel.    Please remember, ice conditions vary greatly in different parts of the lake.  One ice road can have good ice that has been checked and marked while down the shoreline there may be ice not suitable for travel yet.  Work through resorts and outfitters on the ice and stay on the marked trails for safety. Anticipation is high as the walleye and sauger fishing this fall was good and fish were staged in good numbers along the south shore.   On the Rainy River...   Much of the Rainy River is frozen up.  Things are progressing but it certainly needs cold weather and some time. Ice conditions vary and on the river there is current, so much like the lake, we encourage visitors to work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Ice is forming nicely and is right on track for this year's ice fishing season.  There has been no ice fishing yet as resorts are simply monitoring ice conditions at this time, waiting until the ice is thicker before marking trails and getting fish houses out. Fall fishing was excellent with walleyes in good numbers along with some monster pike being caught.  All indications point to good fishing when the ice is ready as the fish are there. Driving through Canada to reach the Angle no longer requires COVID vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App (which is optional).   For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, there are few options.   1.  When ice conditions allow, the snowmobile trail will be groomed and staked from the south shore up to the Angle. 2.  The Lake of the Woods Passenger service provides round trip bombardier service across the lake.   3.  Lake Country Air provides air service to both the south end and NW Angle.

      At least they can all say they were there early!

      I'm still hoping for a sunny warm-up to melt all of the existing snow off of the existing ice, and then an arctic blast. After that, I'm hoping for a giant walleye to hop out of the lake and filet itself before skinny dipping in some batter and then relaxing in a hot pan of oil in my kitchen.

      I'm planning to go later this week.  There's fresh snow coming tomorrow too.

      I would highly recommend not doodling around out there at night time either.  When those cracks form, the piece breaks off from the main sheet or the land and you are then caught "adrift" with no way back.   The bite is not as good as it normally is from what I have read either.  We're so used to hearing that "its on fire" for the early ice bite but that doesn't appear to be the case.
    • leech~~
      Well, a new report for today talked about cracks opening up and ice piling up!  Better check the night before you head up.  😕
    • Harv
      Leech,  that's what I've been reading.  I'm heading up on Friday the 2nd, for the weekend.   Fingers crossed limits are caught
