citiot huh? sounds like a pretty insightful term. my neighbor john larson was watching out his garage window and noticed this individual display huge portions of poor judgment yesterday. lucky for this individual he was close to a phone. he saw the guy go by closer to shore, then saw him turn and kick it in the @$$, straight out toward the middle and open water!! john said he knew he was not going to make it. he hit one area of slush, then another, then another, then the open water, and the sled fell right on it's face, and down it went. he ran to the phone dialed 911, then grabbed a life jacket, a waterski type pull behind inner tube and rope. he headed out without hesitation.he was was only able to make it to within 100 yards of the individual. he said the ice around him in places was only 1/4 inch thick!!! he said if he stayed to the ares where there was snow, it felt firmer, but if he got away from that it was pretty flimsy, with open water holes all around him he knew he could not possibly make it any further. the man was yelling for help, and he tried to calm him down and kept reasuring the man that help was on the way, and to keep moving towards solid ice. john stayed out there until the rescue boat picked him up, and the airboat was able to retrieve the man from the icy water. he was still concious, but was suffering from severe hypothermia. he will be o.k.
what he was thinking, who knows. i do know he is one lucky man, with a huge debt of gratitude, to the rescuers who risked their own lives, and to a real stand up guy, as my kids call him "johny boy" larson.
great job buddy smile.gif
be careful out there, jigglestick.

Some citiot was out snowmobiling on Moose Lake north of Deer River yesterday afternoon and went through, about 500-700 yards west of the east access. The guy is lucky someone was watching his stupidness and called 911. The real bad news is that the Cohasset Fire Dept. came out with the Ice Angel (airboat)and broke ice from the east landing out to where this citiot was and then all the way to the south landing at Voights. So when you do hit the ice on Moose, keep that in mind!!!

A century ago someone that foolish would have died.

You see all kinds of goofy stuff on ice. About a week ago I seen someone on the little lake here in town buzzing around on a 4 wheeler, didn't go through but it must have been close. Last year early on Vermilion seen some with a fullsize pickup on 7" of ice, you could feel the water push out in front of him a 1/2 mile away. Both made it, but really pushing their luck to the limit.

I like knopper's view of the situation, made me laugh. Speaking of Moose, anyone been fishing out there yet? I saw some houses out there the other day and wondered if they were picking up eyeballs yet.

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.

      Looks interesting.... any chance a video is on its way 🙂
