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.

      Lake Osakis is a good lake with a few good resorts.. that can a an option for you...  it has the small mouth bass and sunnies you want...  but it's not way up north as you might want..

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
