I am reminded of about 7 years ago or so when it was like 60 and the permies all were floating like bobbers. Apparently had something to do with the wind ripping currents and "cutting" around houses, leaving a large hole and floating house. I had a friend that had it happen to him and it took alot to get it out. I would get it off the ice, just for saving time later this season, could you imagine chipping that out!

I pulled mine to shore, along with a friend of mines last night. He is taking his off tonight, I maybe as well, it all depends on his report of what the ice looks like.

Thats an awesome picture Basser! Not that the guy is having trouble, just the picture. I wouldn't wish that kind of misfortune on anyone! If only that dude had a Ford though... he would have made it! HA HA.

I posted it in the Annandale-Buffalo forum. I'm looking for a pic of it now. It was on Beebe in St. Michael.

NE Crow Wing county. Around 15 miles from Brainerd. Most all the lakes up here are this way. This was the 3rd one coming to shore. I watched the first 2 way out on the lake and the water splashing up was amazing, about as high as the side windows. This was the third one and he was driving a lot slower. The plow you see is hitting water and it was in a normal raised position.

It was quite a sight, glad I had my camera along.

Seen a number people taking their houses off of Osakis this afternoon. Lots of standing water on the lake. Some areas are only a couple inches of water and other spots there is 6 inches or more. Saw other people move them to a little higher spot and block them back up.

I checked mine after work and glad I did, the holes I drilled on Saturday had opened up to about 18". Decided to pull it in by shore for now. I marked these holes, but it's pretty dangerous moving around the lake now especially if you're going out when it's dark. I'm gonna wait until cools off enough to freeze the lakes back up before I go back out.

If I had one on a lake up here I would be pulling it off until either the water on the ice settles or we get a good deep freeze. Or you will surely have a frozen in house. Going to be a lot of wooden blocks laying around the ice this year.

Drill some holes a little off from the houses, the water might drain into them and the house might not flood.

This works very well to relieve the water pressure from on top of the ice. We have done this many time. The water goes down the hole, and the ice comes back up. Makes the hard water season last a little longer.

Or pull the house to where there aren't any holes, no moving water to cut the ice.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
