Southern Fire in sky

Recommended Posts

wanger29

i was just up to Red this past weekend. Fished outside on Friday and all day noticed smoke coming from behind the southern tree line. Later on that night I stepped outta the shack and saw a huge fire fluctuating up and down around the same area. The size of this fire was nothing I'd seen before. It was off quite a distance even with that you could tell the size of it all. But just as soon as it caught my eye it disappeared. I watched it for close to 5 minutes. Does anyone know what this was? Or anyone else happen to see it?

Saturday I was in the area doing a little 4-wheeling. I stopped by my neighbors at the hunting shack to see what was new. They told me that lots of people were burning off fields on Friday night and it was visible from a long ways away. I am guessing that you saw some fields burning up...when Reed Canary Grass takes off it burns very bright and very hot, but only for a few seconds. If their was RCG that was about 6' tall I bet the flames would be visible from a long ways away in short bursts.

Just one theory, but I know people were burning.

It is both burning season and forest fire season in this area, and with the dry conditions it may be a bright spring.

Native Prairies do well when burned off this time of year.

Reed canarygrass also is burned off in the spring.

both have lots of fuel and burn hot and fast when it's dry.

Burning bans/restrictions will likely be going into effect so people will be trying to get this done asap when conditions permit

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
