Tornado on winnie

Recommended Posts

crappie_king1114

Just got back from winnie after 6 nights of camping and fishing. What a blast! Fish were caught but not very many. The most excitement was when a tornado formed right before OUR eyes between Farley crick and Pidgeon river. We were standing on Pidgeon dam and it formed, touched down and died out when it got close to shore. It happened pretty quick but I'm sure alot of people saw it so if you did back me up on this one. First one I have ever saw and it was awesome. I'm glad it didn't come our way!!

I was fishing between Birches and High Banks when I saw it. One of the neatest things I have seen in nature. I tried to high tail it to the launch but I had spun the prop and could only go about 5 miles per hour. Good Times.

When they are on the water they are called water spouts. They die pretty quickly because the water cools it fast and the hot pressure inducing air cools. Neat and scary though.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
