Forest Lake Ice surface Cleanup

Recommended Posts

tunrevir

Hey just wanted to put out a shout to all Fmr's that fished on the lake this winter and have some freetime Sunday afternoon. The Forest Lake Association is putting on an ice surface cleanup this Sunday. The meeting time is 1 p.m. at bayside park(the city boat launch) There will be a free BBQ at the Forest Laker following the cleanup. I am going to forego a trip up north to participate and hope that many of you will be able to attend. Anyone with a 4 wheeler and a trailer is very needed at this point. All volunteers need to have is a pair of gloves a work ethic and a god appetite! We have one dumpster donated, it would be nice if we could fill more and let people know how much this is needed on all area lakes this time of year. Questions? call 651-755-6400 Blake Roberts or 651-982-1277 Chris Hoyt. Blakes e-mail address is broberts@forestlakefloral.com Please don't edit this as it is a goodwill thing to clean up the lake surface for everyone elses enjoyment. I look foreward to meeting up with some other FMr's out on the lake this Sunday! Any other questions can be sent here to tunrevir in reply and I'll do my best to answer them for you. Thanks guys, it has been an awsome winter!

Hey tunrevir,

I have been thinking about doing something like this on more than just one lake. It would be nice if we could get a group together to go around to a couple area lakes, do one or two a day on the weekends. Concentrating on hitting the spots that the crowds build up on.

Sounds like there is going to be another event up chisago way. I didn't realize it but there is a forum for posting cleanups at the end of the site. I am also going to post over there. Thanks guys, all help would be appreciated! Lets keep the resource clean and usable for others in the future! I can't wait for the BBQ afterwards! MMMMMMMM!

Anyone else free Sunday afternoon? Four wheelers and trailers are needed but we will have transportation out there! Come on where else can you go and get free food for minimal work? Had a few interested parties earlier when I posted this. In all honesty, I would be sitting at home after church and watching Nascar but I also feel I need to help take care of the resource. If you want to help out the more hands the quicker it will go and the race will be on at the Laker afterwards. We can do this in three hours versus a whole day if we get enough people out! Thanks!

Cool, any help out there on any area lake is welcome! This one just happens to be a bit more organized at this point. Anything that anyone can do to pick up is appreciated! Thanks for the interest.

Cool!, I have found lures, rattle reels and all kinds of tackle during the cleanups! I even found a spoon I lost on an early ice foray and then found it stuck in the ice during a spring sweep!

Hey just wanted to say thank you for the guys that showed up today for the Lake cleanup! It was a big success and it went relatively quick with all of the help we had out there. Ole Matty, was there and I also met a few Lurkers(Mike and Greg) you know who you are! Thanks again for the efforts of all involved! If I didn't make it to say hello I apologize, look for the faded mickey mouse hat in a blue grey and that is likely me! Thanks again guys and gals, what a great event!

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉

      My wife, son and I we're on Crystal Lake in Burnsville several years ago. My son was 14-1/2 yrs. old at the time, I use to let him drive the gravel roads up at deer camp all the time and let him back the trailer into the spot, he got pretty good at it. Anyway, back to the boat ramp at Crystal Lake. I dropped the wife and son off on the dock and waited my turn to load up...a local cop was at the ramp and my wife asked if it was ok if he backed in, he didn't mind.. vehicles were waiting and my son drops it in on the first try! Proud dad moment 👍👍
