LMITOUT

I heard on the radio last week about two brothers who followed each other into the lake (two trucks). The news story really didn't go into other details and figured I'd hear something about it here but never did.

The two brothers that went through the ice were coming off during a white out. They got turned around and drove over some new ice that was opened just days before.

2 bros Thats the last one I know about. Be careful there was still open water east of the island today. With the cold weather forcast if the open water freezes over there could be more swimming!

Those were my two cousins that went through!!! It happened last Sat. morning around 6 o'clock. They were following each other and couldnt see cause of the blowing snow and drove where they didnt want to go.

Their dog died in the truck. They both got up on the ice and screamed for help and a guy close by heard them!

Stupid and I fell bad for their dog and their parents that had to morgage the house to get the trucks out!!

that is too bad. Given the circumstances (white out) I can definitely understand how one could get turned around and end up where you wouldn't want to be. sorry to hear about the dog / financial issues.

No toy is expensive if can save your life, you can never tell when that might be that you need it. so you just use it all the time.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
