I don't understand why people have to take there chunks of ice out of their hole and leave them on top of the ice. They are dangerous to us snowmobilers and fishermen. I use to spear alot and always put my chuncks under the ice and it never bothered the fish from coming in. At least put them in when they leave. I was on Lake Bemidji yesterday and I saw at least 6 places where ice was on the lake. A few spots were even out there where no house's were. Bang ouch if you hit them at night. I hope there are spering people seeing this PLEASE PUT YOUR ICE CHUNKS IN THE LAKE!!! Thank you

Can't be stressed enough. There have been many crashes caused by these ice chunks, not to mention the holes driven into because they were unmarked. Cover em with fresh snow and you can not see them. Everyone should make it a point to tell people you see putting them on the ice to bust them up or put them under the ice. There are some times when we fishermen just don't communicate enough with each other.

Littlejerk- Maybe if we strap those chunks that are out around our houses we can do a new style of Ice Skating! grin.gif

I usually leave them next to my house until i move it then push them back into the hole when i move it,and of course mark the spot so nobody falls in after im gone.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought I remembered seeing something in the regulations about it being illegal to leave the ice chunks out there. Anybody with with a book out there that can look it up, or am I just in la-la land?

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
