Plucking a SUV out of the river

Recommended Posts

I got to watch a SUV get yanked from Lake Onalska today. The SUV went in last Saturday, so it was froze in pretty solid. It took them 4 hours to get it out.

where this SUV was about 5 feet of water. Lucky the SUV's front end just went in as featured in the photographs.

The next series I'm about to go catch is a van that's been fully submerged for about a week. Same lake- same tournament. That is in about 9 feet of water.

Dive team has been dispatched for recovery.

During last week's Atomic Derby, there were reports of 4 confirmed and 1 unconfirmed reports of cars falling through the ice.

With super cold temperatures this week, La Crosse County Dive Unit determined it safe enough to conduct vehicle recovery operations.

We're there any injuries with all this happening? I am guessing the people in charge of the derby will be getting an ear full due to someun safe ice conditions and allowing this tourney to go on.

Last Winter it took my cousin about an hour to get this one back to dry land. He did the recovery solo. This was not his first solo recovery...

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
