I heard from local sources that it's going to be closed the rest of the year! Only a minor inconvenience, eh.

I drove over the bridge this afternoon and they were rolling the sediment barrier on the west side of the bridge up onto a boat, only to drive over again a couple hours later and it had been put it out on the East side. I'm tempted to try to jump it, like the Duke Boys.....YEEEHAWWW!!

I heard that it wasn't supposed to open for a week or two, but there was a boat jumping the floats and yelling so loudly, they opened it a few days early. smile.gif

The silt fences were open yesterday...Took the family out for a little boat ride and went under the bridge for the first time.

Hey Stick, have you seen the pretty art work on the new bridge. They appear to be a series of symbols of some kind. Maybe MNDOT marks there 'turf' with graffitti? Nothing highlights the beauty of cultured stone like blue spraypaint.

No I hadn't...that's terrible. Everything from the top side looks so nice, and I haven't been by the causeway by boat lately to see how nice it looks from the water. Day by day, I get depressed more and more by what people are capable of. Hopefully it'll get covered up and look good.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
