I just drove by the chain and can second that!!!!!!! in cold spring there was a sheriffs deputy and a cold spring officer on the old railroad bridge. the deputy looked like he had some type of gadget in his hand. water was really pouring over that dam.
with the news that Antons got evacuated last nite with a full house i'm sure everyones on full flood alert!!!
I would say its over around my area. We tried to get on numerous lakes yesterday with hip boots and broke through all the edges. still ice out there once you reach it but Things are going fast. Water is riseing fast. the hwy 22 access is completely flooded and gaining elevation by the minute. Might make a few Northwest runs yet but locally I wont be takeing the risk anymore been a weird year but honestly i'm ready for the long rods to come out!
Sounds like several lakes are experiencing winter kills in the Wilmar area this year. The extent of the kill isn't clear yet but Big Kandi has had some walleye mortality, Lillian appears to have had a significant die off with dead jumbo perch in the shallows, Kasota and Wakanda have a bunch of dead eyes showing up in creeks. I'd be surprised if it isn't more wide spread than these lakes.
