I heard it was a good one. My dad lives on East Battle and lost 2 trees, the neighbor lost 4 and down thr road, a tree fell into the garage and crashed the car inside.

My Uncle lives on Stuart and lost a big tree as well. sounds like the narrows bewteen the two lakes got hit hard as well.

I'll know more tonight.

I think the brunt of the storm was from the OT Campground to BalMoral - hundreds of trees down, docks mangled and boats overturned. Been without power most of the day. I'm sure anybody with some free time and a chain saw would be more than welcome.

Holy cow. I had no idea there was a storm this bad.
I called my Dad tonight to ask if he had heard from anyone on East Battle about damage to our place. He said he hadn't heard anything, but is gonna be calling people to see what may have happened around the north shore.

Wow! That was some storm that rolled through just before 4am. Looks like we caught the southern edge of it on South Turtle.

I hope everyone came through it okay.

Wind hit pretty good around Johnson, Long Lk. area and around Stalker too. Trees down,flag poles, a big jungle gym blew over and I guess there was damage at the new golf course on the west end of Stalker Lk. I think it wrecked a couple boat canopies too.

Dad called north, and the north shore of East Battle got it too.
We have one tree down. Missed the pole barn luckily. Neighbor has a big oak on their cabin. Sounds like a lot of people with trees down.
Grandpa went down to the farm south of Vining, and said a tree was across the Minimum-maintenance road going into the property, so no idea how bad it may be up in there.
Crud.

The storm took down a couple trees at my place, and that's all I can see so far. I helped a friend remove trees near Balmoral last night, and this area was hit the hardest. Definite straightline winds. I think the golf course lost 200+ trees??

Juice - You are gonna new a work crew to bail out that blue boat, LOL. Last time I tried to move it a bit I dang near got a hernia.

ChuckN - That's a shame about Balmoral. Lots of wonderful oaks on that course. I wonder if the big snaggly cottonwood that guards the 18th green survived?

The dang water level on S. Turtle shot right back up. It is only a 1/4 inch below the high point from this year, and is 9.5 inches above the low point that was on May 5.

I saw Balmoral on the news last night.
What a bummer. It looked awful.

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before 
    • Fishguy20
      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
