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??

Took a drive past the chain. Looks pretty barren. Seen one truck come off Becker. One house left on horseshoe and one on cedar island. Was 1 vehicle, Toyota type on horseshoe. Road didn't look very good out there. Road out on cedar island looked good front hwy 22.

      does the DNR list these lakes?????? I also heard the DNR quit allowing permiscuos fishing??? anyone else hear this??? 
    • MikeG3Boat
      Looking for advice/recommendation on getting a replica done for 2 different fish.  One is a 14 1/2" Crappie other is a 14" perch both are my personal bests.  Wonder who has had fish replicas made for those two fish?  Any recommendations are welcome.  
    • smurfy
      my guess would be cty rd 35 past the north end of bowstring lake. I seen a lot of tapped trees around here the past few days too!!!!! rumor has it he's staying an extra day, must be date night over in inger!!!!!!!😂

      Yah the Dam in cold spring is quite the site I stopped there and looked at it . Its gushing !!
    • smurfy
      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!!!
    • IceHawk
      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!
