Snow on Red????

Recommended Posts

zrmo440

I'm coming up to fish this weekend and was wondering if there is enough snow on the lake to pack around the portable's skirt. Sounds like the temps this weekend will require some good insulation. Thanks for all the great information, I'm amped to get up there.

There are snowbanks around. Might just have to stop and throw some on the tailgate before you get to your spot. Its worth it

Mo-

Welcome to the FishingMinnesota family!

I heard thru the grapevine that there is almost all glare ice out there. Not good for snowmobiles or banking the house. Maybe someone can share some first hand info?

There's plenty of snow for banking... You just have to pick a snowy spot to set up! The snow is mainly in "patches" on the lake, areas around ice piles and stuff like that are great locations for finding snow. The only thing is if you have a permanent house you might have to take alot of scoops from one area and bring around the house, so it takes alot more work. A sled to pile snow in, could be the ticket! As for poertables, nooo problem..You'll be fine.

Good luck.

      @BRULEDRIFTER We're on the east end of the lake, and we're all hoping that the Landing opens and thrives.  It is a great boat ride to the west end to have lunch.  Just an aside,  I talked to Ryan Horan three weeks ago and was told by him that they plan to have Bayview open for Fishing Opener.  The "Permanently Closed" sign is down on Hwy 77.  He also told me that they are putting in a completely new docking system that will accommodate more Bayview boats, and have reserved docks for the new campground.  We'll wait and see.  No opinions here, just stating what I was told by RH.

      A buddy of mine lives on the creek in the SE corner.  So, we'll do a combo of shore and boat.  I'm mainly bringing my boat for him to see how follow contour and SI works on the new birds.

      The temperature outlook looks promising, with nighttime lows staying above freezing. What I don't see is a lot of rain or wind to really break things up. I still think that we are going to be down to the wire on opener. Hopefully we don't get the same crazy warm up as last year that affected the spawn.

      I just had some concrete work done here in the 612 area code. I had to legally bribe the local jurisdiction via a $25 "temporary permit" to get the concrete truck to my house. Even down here, the lasting cold caused local communities to push out the weight restrictions on the roads. I'm sure that it will take longer in Cook.   I'm not sure what business owners will actually do, but I would think some enterprising folks in Cook will try to fill in the gaps. Sure it won't be like shopping at Super One, but there should be places selling staples. Sue and Ron always had staples available at Moosebirds. Maybe the new owners will temporarily expand their grocery line so that people can stay on/around the lake without driving half an hour.

      Ice out declared on Minnetonka on 4/18. Just saw my first facebook post of crappies being caught there. V has been about 2 weeks behind Tonka the last few years, putting it at ice out around May 2.

      Most lakes around Rush City including Rush and Goose went ice free yesterday.

      I think it took a true idiot /snob/pr!ck to ruin a place like the Landing.  I see that place as a total money maker and only wish I had the financial backing to have made a move to purchase it. Especially with Bayview out of the picture ,that place could be/should be the hottest place on the lake.  Absolutely no reason that place can't be packed from open to close on a daily basis.    The vibe I'm getting from the new ownership is they are going to bring it back to more of a sports bar/destination bar on the lake.  I think they have heard the community and will be responding in kind.  I look forward to  boating over and enjoying some brews and food on that patio again this summer.
