4/8/2005 Warroad ice report

Recommended Posts

Anthony

I can't believe it!

I went to the jetty at lunch today, mid 60's, good wind out of the Southeast, water is a couple hundred yards out into the main lake past the jetty.

I can see what looks like maybe cormorants sitting out on the edge of the ice past the open water.

I dig out the binoculars and it turns out to be about 10 people and maybe 7 wheelers out on the ice beyond the open water....fishin!!!

All in a group besides. Do the math: 10 people at an average 170lbs apiece and 7 machines at maybe 500lbs apiece and you have over 2 1/2 tons sitting in very close proximity on rotting ice.

I had to sit there and watch them for maybe 10 minutes figuring when they disappeared that there would at least be someone who could alert authorities where to begin searching.

That was way too scary to see that.

And to make matters worse, they were still sitting on the channel that the river flows through into the main lake, no doubt after eyes.

Yikes!

Weekend report is 66 degrees and sunny tomorrow, possible T-storms and maybe 50 on Sunday.

I saw folks on Saturday out there on the ice and I was scared just watching!

Took a cruise yesterday and the Jacks are running in the creeks/ditches around warroad.

Rain, rain go away.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
