did your nards thaw out yet? shocked.giflaugh.gif

I was debating to go out Friday, but it was a tad nipply out for me this morning. I may have to wait until the end of the weekend when it's supposed to get a little warmer. I don't feel like fishing in a portable in -15 to -20 weather with 25+ mph winds. BRRRRR

Managed to catch a few sunnies and a worthy bass...got back to the truck after stickin the atv only to realize it was down to 5 degrees! When we got there it was 27. Thats it for the portable for a few days.. moochin off those with perms for a few days!!!!

Is everyone driving out with pickups on Middle Cormorant, Leaf and Big Cormorant? Or how bout in general in the DL area. I'm thinking about going out that way tomorrow.

Thanks

COLD?

Are you guys serious? Good gravy. I move away, and one weekend of -20 temps and it's cold? Sheesh. I was just telling all the people here in Wisconsin how tough you are in DL.

-19 here this morning and everyone was close to shuting down the world. Last three years I was up there we almost needed extensions and had lows as of this for a week straight. My first year there we hit -31.

That year I also won a bet on DL opening up. I won on May 5th or 6th. Not a good opener that year!

Fisherdog, you losing control of your constituants up there??

most people are driving vehicles on any of the lakes, mid c, lida, big c. I've seen trucks on all of them. Me, I'll stick to my 4 wheeler and trailer...gives me an excuse to ride it!!

Not sure Hammer, might be losing my mind instead. I'm still a little hesitant to drive on most lakes. Went out to Johnson lake today and drove out, only 16 inches of ice and its not a big or deep lake. Just waiting around for the late ice, early spring crappie bite now.

      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.
    • delcecchi
      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?
