URL cleanup and FISHING!!!! Saturday

Recommended Posts

LABS4ME

A group of us are meeting at Westwinds at 8-8:30am Saturday to form a garbage brigade. We are going to go out to the great expanse of ice with our wheelers and pick up the "left-overs" from all the slobs who unfortunatley also visit this great lake. Our goal is to pick up trash for 3-4 hours, come back to shore and deposit it in the dumpsters, reorganize at Westwinds for lunch and head back out as a formidable force and teach those crappies a lesson! grin.gif The fishing the last week has been nothing short of fantastic! Anybody want to meet up with a bunch of IBOTs and make a day of it? So far I know Jigglestick, Bearplott, Blackshack and I are in.... anybody else? You can post here or call my cell phone at 651.341.4581 and let me know if you're gonna make it up or if you need to meet us on the lake. Sounds like short sleeve weather on Saturday! grin.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

well there are probably some trash under the ice also. Last week Tuesday I was out there and had my Aqua Vu checking out old holes and one spot there were a whole bunch of used toliet paper on the bottom of the lake, which was pretty nasty. i was ticked off about it, the fish probably stayed away from that area? I think the clean up get together is a great idea.

Sounds good Bareback! We may have to wait a little while though. Shortly after he was born he was airlifted down to Mpls Childrens Hospital. He has been in the NICU ever since. He is having a hard time breathing on his own. He is starting to get a little stronger though, and hopefully we will be able to bring him home in a few days. Later, Scott.

Thanks Ken! Things are looking up. He is getting stronger and needing less and less oxygen all of the time. I came back home yesterday to spend a little time with the other 2 kids. It is still uncertain when we will be able to bring him home. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

We didn't clean up the shore but rather the ice itself... it was the last day ATV's were allowed to access the lake... Unfortunatley we didn't get all the way over on to Hillman's or Westwind's roads. We did clean up out at the ends of their roads in the 6-7 mile range, and that wasn't to bad, I heard it was a lot worse in the 4-5 mile range. We accessed at Mort's and picked up several trailer loads of garbage, the typical pop and beer cans, broken minnow buckets, propane bottles, but the tied up plastic bags were really making my stomach turn by the end of the day. 90% of them were used to hold the remains of "yesterdays" bratwurst and beer, and the other 10% were filled with filleted out walleye remains! confused.gif We also counted several walleye carcasses laying on the ice that no doubt became exposed once the snow drifts melted. The gulls were busy cleaning them up. Anyone who doubts how many walleye are being kept right now, should go out at seasons end and see for themselves how large the problem really is. Also, if you need to relieve yourself, tie up your bag and bring it to shore... I don't think my 7 year old kid still has figured out why "adults" can be such pigs! He even has enough common sense to pack it out, but the "adults" can't figure out that there is no such thing as the "poop fairy" that will magically pick up their bag of crap! frown.gif It was truley disgusting! After 4 hours of cleaning up I can honestly say we only made a small dent in the problem. There will be a couple lakeshore efforts yet to come this spring and summer, if you can make it, the help will be appreciated.

Good Luck!

Ken

Labs, your report of what you found is truly, "DISSAPOINTING." To think that this goes on all over the state.......... Well, I just dont know what to think. During the Medicine lake cleanup in the City I found Crappies stuffed just under the snow next to a hole that was from the day before confused.gif

Thanks for all your efferts as to the clean up!

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?
    • Mitch K
      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!
    • mrpike1973
      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
