jus got back from LOW tonight. we put our silverado through at 3 sunday in about 3 feet of water. damage wasnt bad but it was still a pain. luckily there were some nice people up there to help us out. the ice we tried driving on was not even safe enough for walking on and there was ever some open spots near by. i guess that what happens when the city boys go out and think they know whats up.<P>good luck

i was out to it was fine sat. but when you get the rain we did that evening the warm rain is gotta go somewhere and draininto the small holes making them bigger. dont venture at night. but the rest of the lake was awesome for driving as all the snow melted just look out for the bomber trails as we gotstuck driving thru that and it was not fun shoveling all that slush. good luck,walleye bite was soso .it was nice getting my limit on red in 3 hours friday night <BR>

it happened off adrians roads infront of skeets point? (i think) the people said there was some springs around there and there was small parts of open water near by that we werent aware of until after. several of us had fallen through just walking around the truck. sure would have been nice if they would have mentioned to us that that ice wasnt good and to stay away!<P>keep safe!

The reason you were not warned about any of the 3 springs that are off of Skee's Point is because you were driving off of the plowed road. You may not have known were the plowed road was. But those three springs are not the only ones in Four Mile Bay and not the only places you could fall through. There were infact three different vehicles that went in that spot between Sat. night and Sun. when you did. So don't feel too bad. But next time stop and ask around and then look around ahead of where you are driving. <P><BR><p>[This message has been edited by snaggletooth (edited 04-02-2004).]

      Went out the last couple days on Mille lacs, we had no problem finding fish, but the big fish eluded us... We got all sorts of year classes from 11" eyes on up to 24", which is a good sign... That big storm they got must have dirtied the water up, all the fish we found were on the top edge of the flats no matter how bright it was... Rigging leeches and crawlers were the best until we got some waves then the jigging rap was taking all the fish. The fish were stacked up on points of flats and narrow ridges on the flats... We tried pulling lead for a little while, but I've never done it so I had zero confidence in it haha.

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
