I drove through the most tremendous storm I have ever experienced just before 7:00 this morning on County Road #35 between Underwood and Dalton.

What the heck was that? Was there a tornado mixed in there? For the most part, I could not see more than a truck length or two, and sometimes not at all. At one point, lightning struck a tree directly in front of me and the top of the tree landed right in the road, but the wind was so strong it blew off the road!

Jeez, I hate those! I got caught on the road east of perham one evening in a nasty hail/windstorm, I was pulling my old lund and the wind blew the boat and trailer sideways on the highway. We ended up pulling over and riding it out, pickup is full of hail dents now... oh well. lol glad your safe bucket!! Paul

I saw that one coming! I was sure glad I did not have to drive through it.

I was laying in bed when the static on the AM radio woke me up about 5 am. I checked on the radar and could see that it was nastly looking and heading for us.

I had been dealing with some beaver problems the last couple of weeks, so I got in my truck to go see if they had reconstructed a dam before that storm hit.

I was on my way home and at the junction of Hwy 210 and 119 just east of Underwood about 6:25. I could see that whole system moving in. Along the leading edge of that front were wispy looking white clouds extending nearly to the ground. I did not see any rotation in them, and it did not look like a wall cloud. I had never seen a gust front look like that before. It was really creepy.

I live on South Turtle, so I tore on home to get everything battend down. I got in the house with about 5 minutes to spare. When that wind came up, WOW! I could not see a hundred yards. I have a huge cottonwood tree that hangs over my house. It is right on the edge of the water now, and that saturated root ball had me concrned. I grabbed the wife and kid and headed down to the basement to watch the show. Power went out, and was out for about 2 hours. That wind was so strong it looked like it was peeling sheets off the lake surface.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
