Help! Need A Plow Truck To Get A Fish House Off Long Lake Richmond.

Recommended Posts

Reel_Magic

Well lets start this off with i'm an idiot🙄.  Went fishing last Saturday afternoon/evening on Long Lake in Richmond and did pretty good.  Thought I would leave the house overnight and come back, fish a little bit and it get it Sunday morning.  Needless to say the winds wiped out all "roads" out to the house by Sunday morning and I can't make it there.  I really need someone who is willing to plow a road back out so I can get it off by Next Monday.  Willing to pay for time and effort please PM me if interested.

 

Thanks!

You may want to take a tip from another poster who was stranded on a lake last weekend  too, IMO. He ended up calling a nearby business & found out who did their plowing. Got a #, made a call,  turned out they lived only a few blocks away & soon were there to get him out.  After > 8 hours of struggling, he was finally able to get off the lake. :cool:

i was born and raised in richmond, currently live in cold spring, but for the life of me i dont know anyone with a plow right of the top of my noggin.

 

i'd suggest stopping at corky's or haffleys and ask around, or even channel marine or the gas station on 23??????????

Thanks guys, I think I will give channel marine a call and see if they know anyone.  Ill get it done one way or another.  There are two other houses near me and I imagine they are in the same predicament

There are a few guys locally that have plows and do some plowing. Casey owner at Channel Marine has a plow and a 3500 Chevy pickup he may be able to help. Another two guys I know that do  local plowing are Chuck Merten, Casey or Jeff at channel Marine should have his number and Chuck Schmitz excavateing. Good luck hope it works out.

If you know the other guys with houses contact them you all three could split the cost as Im sure they will need support also. I Assume you are out by The N islands? Another option you would have and is probably closes access is call George at Cozy corners he may be able to help you out I know he has a truck with a plow also. Morris Grossinger locally has a skid steer with a blower and he also does snow removal not sure if he would be willing to take a chance on the ice with it. Hopefully some of these options work for you sure one of them will.

MC's Lawn and Landscaping does our commercial properties in the St. Cloud area, but he's from the Richmond area and I know he plows a few drives on Elkview Cir.  Maybe try him out??

      The far northern reaches of crow wing county.

      What area were you in? Nothing specific, just general area. Like Alexandria or whatever.
    • Daniel Hayes
      On buck, are their any secrets to know about? Says it's a clear lake, any chance panfish might bite at night?
    • AlwaysFishing23
      It’s not bad! I got it this last fall at a hardware type store with a fishing department. They had the reels priced at $39.99. Plus they were running a 25% off reel sale. So I got it for something like $25. So a $90 reel I walked out for $25. It’s ok worth the $25 but not $90 imo.
    • IceHawk
      Great report and pics! Looks like a great time. How do you like your Clam Gravity Elite? I really like mine have a couple now and plan to add a few more next year.  Own a couple black betty free falls also but for the buck the Gravity's are the way to go.

      awe...………...you forgot the GPS cords!!!!!!!!!!🤣   nice pictures and fish!!!!!!!!👍
    • Borch
      I know a group of us have talked a lot about this recently.   I really like the 10 or 5 depending in the lake.  The 1 over 10" if someone wants a trophy gill.   For crappie regs just look a bit south.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Well we wrapped up a few days up north. Tried a lake I’ve been to a few times in past but seem to always struggle at getting anything going. It took a lot of miles on the sled and be willing to go out in subzero temps and strong winds but I was able to contact a massive amount of gills. Ended up catching around 300 I figure. Biggest was about 9”- 9 1/2”. A lot of dandies over all. Kept a few meals to hold me over for a while. Next day went back and threw out a tipup with suckers I had left over from a few weeks ago. I literally could not keep the flag down! ( haha what a funny sentence!!) it was not stop flags and fish! I even had one spool me as I running up to it! So much fun. The gills were all in about 14fow but were stacked from bottom up to about 5 ft down. It’s One of the clearest lakes in the state So I was able to sight fish them and let me tell you if your able to sight fish gills its one of the most entertaining things I can think of doing. Even we’re able to put a decent amount of miles on the sleds. The trails up there were the best I’ve seen and were perfect shape for riding.

      Paul, any reports on pike fishing.??? my plan is to come out and chase flags Saturday!!!!!!!!!!
    • Sculpin
      I would tend to agree, however, the DNR obviously does not see it that way.  They show 267 walleyes died from hooking mortality in the Dec. Jan. period for a total poundage loss of 521lbs. The numbers are simply mind boggling, and amazing.
