Pressure Ridges?

Recommended Posts

Fishn'Lady

Are there any large pressure ridges out there this year? I remember the one out there last year, it ran pretty much the whole lake north to south. We are thinking about coming up next week and was wondering if any had formed yet. Thanks.

Oh, I forgot to ask...Will we need an extension? grin.giflaugh.gif j/k

Thought Kelly and Buddy kept moving them to keep everybody on their toes. wink.gif The ridges so far are real close to shore and the guys have them whipped. Couldn't believe all the work put into Hillman's road between the two weekends. Good job guys.

I wouldn't say we have the pressure ridge whipped. It's more like a standoff. crazy.gif The next warm spell and mother nature will once again show us who is really in charge. shocked.gif I burned up the clutch in my truck yesterday so I had to sit on the sidelines but Buddy and Pat Foster pushed the main road out to 6 miles. Pat is getting good enough with his new V-Plow that Buddy might even take the "Student Plower" sign off the back of Pat's truck. grin.gif

You are way behind. crazy.gif 2 clutches, 2 power steering units, 1 ring gear and pinion, 1 transfer case, 2 motor mounts and one front axel. The good part of this is that it is still early in the year so most of the list still starts with 1. smirk.gif

And you have been on the lake how long? About 17 days. You should have your own pit crew. Maybe Tigger, Duron, and Kelly. Good luck with the repairs!

Tiger, Duron and Kelly are the pit crew. smile.gif They took the clutch out of Buddy's truck last weekend but could not find a flywheel on the weekend so they are coming back to put it back together this weekend. Last year on a lovely -20 night Buddy and Tigger replaced a tranny in one of Buddy's trucks right in Hillman's parking lot. Started at 2:00AM and by sunup the truck was plowing again. ooo.gif

I've only fished URL a couple of times and I gladly paid the fee, with a smile on my face.

Not glad to hear about the mechanical problems, but sure am glad to be able to get on the lake. Thanks fellas.

Kelly, I told you you so, you should have bought yourself a real truck. Actually I think you are just like someone else I know. You probably enjoy being broke down, that way you get to vacation a little bit. grin.gif

I'll pay the $8 bucks no questions asked. There is a lot of lake to keep plowed and lots of snow to move. Is it just me or is it always windy and blowing snow up there??

If you want to complain about lake access fees, cruise over to the Mille Lacs forum. $30-40 a day for a vehicle pulling a drop wheel fishhouse. Unreal! $8 isn't so bad now, is it?

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.
    • A Warrior
      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
