Kelly, I was sitting there at the bar when you guys bolted out the door to see if you could assist in that last truck going down. When you left there were two guys on the ice and one guy missing. What happened? Did they find him? Just bums me out every time I hear someone makes a decision like that and takes others along for their death ride. Hope all came out Ok. Just curious.... Also, your hard effort has been appreciated by all who have crossed your path. You are gaining a very commendable reputation and I for one would like to thank you for all the hard work that's made it possible for me to experience some of the best fishing memories I've ever had to date. Hope to buy you a drink you at the WW when we get some soft water.

About a mile from where we thought the vehicle had gone through two guys in a portable flagged us down that had heard someone yelling and pointed us in the right direction. He was wet but O.K.. smile.gif
This group had their portable blow away in the wind way down at Benz's road and chased it across the lake for miles. The portable went across the ridge and they tried to drive right across behind it. They were about 2 miles west of the bridge.
The other two vehicles both drove into the pressure ridge in the DAYLIGHT. One was heading back to shore for more bait but drove 1 1/2 miles in the wrong direction. The other vehicle just thought it looked safe. frown.gif

Glad to hear it. I still don't understand the overreaction by the Sherriffs Dept. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but that ice is still good for another week yet at least. Did you guys pull the bridge yet? What happens if I go out there in my pickup anyway? Aside from not getting any support from the local Sherriff. Will they ticket? Do they have the right to do that? Seems to me I have a right to decide what is responsible for me and what is not.

Eyewitness,,, what they can do is ticket you for "reckless endangerment" but whether or not they do is pretty much a judgement call by them.

Kelly Is that the guy who went down with 4 others and only three came up at first? I had run up to westwinds and reported this I think it was this guy, but from what I understood there were two trucks in the party, didn't know they were chasing a portable. I had one of the guy tell me to run up and get someone out there. I hope that this is who you found. Too bad about the sheriifs.

Phish on

Big brother strikes again!? I'm sick to death of authorities telling us what we can and can not do. GEEEZZZZZ I mean why not leave that decision up to the guys that are out there everyday moving bridges, plowing roads and generally keeping tabs on conditions.
I can't imagine the sheriffs dept. not responding to a call for help on the lake but I suppose now at least they can say 'I told ya so' after the fact

The one that went down that you are talking about was one vehicle with 4 people. One person got out right away and jumped to the far side of the pressure ridge. The other 3 came out on the south side of the ridge and were picked up right away. the "missing" person was walking down the north side of the ridge.
Today they were there when their vehicle was brought up. They were not chasing their portable, just looking for it.
I hear the Sheriffs Dept. could start writing tickets. I assume that also means that in years to come they will have time for officers to respond for anyone in trouble on the lake.

Glad to hear he got out, the guy I talked to told me they didn't know if he did or not. Still too bad about the cops.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      To bad HSO doesn't have something like this for the Leaders board Top Members contributions. 😕

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
