Slush and water on ice.

Recommended Posts

Coming to a lake near year! :(

 

Please give some reports of what you are finding as we start the melt down. If you don't want to say the lake just say "Up-By or Near XYZ, MN" to give others an idea of what they may be heading into.  Thanks.

 Slush North of Duluth.  Nothing too bad and warmer temps hasn't knocked the snow down much.   Lake travel is pretty much snowmobile.

I was on a sled but there were guys blasting across the lake in trucks. As deep and heavy as the snow was and the ruts they were leaving it's amazing no one got stuck! I tried 6 spots from 6' to 72' feet.  Just small Perch and a few blips on the Vex. Ice was a good 1 3/4 to 2 feet thick yet.  I may be done on that lake for a while. :tired:

went out in the Bay lake area north of Mille Lacs...on the little lake we fished every step we sank a foot and each step filled in with water!  It was a mess but we drove 1.5 hrs to get there so we stuck around for a few hours and caught a few crappies over a deep hole.  Nothing big...good to get out but was very sloppy

Shoot. My family's cabin in near Bay Lake and I was hoping it was freezing up a little more up there so I could sneak out for one last trip. But sitting in 6 inches of slush doesn't sound like much fun.

Fished a couple lakes in the Prior Lake area on Friday and Saturday. Slush had firmed back up, but anywhere there were ruts from trucks driving through the slush were filled with water and looked to be a sure fire way to get good and stuck. Hoping with it staying below freezing for lows might be able to sneak tge house out one more weekend!

Found about 14" of snow and slush on Big Swan north of Grey Eagle. Spent about 1-1/2 hours trying to get my ATV out of that mess. Of course, it wouldn't have taken so long if my noodle was working well enough that I went home after the first time but I was too stupid and had to try a different route and get stuck a second time. :P

 

Got out of there and neighboring Long Lake was okay. I also notced Lady Lake had vehicles on it.

saw a guy on Mille Lacs as we drove by on our way home bury his ATV out from the Garrison Mcd's...looked like he was in a deep field of snow and slush.  Glad I was not in his position at that time!!

    • The problem is the Wolves have no leverage now in regards to trades. If Butler wanted out why did he wait so long, that's just going to make it even harder for him to get to the teams he wants to be traded to? He really left the Wolves in a bad predicament with the timing of all of this.   They have to keep him at this point don't they? And man Thibs is as good as gone if they don't get anything in return. This quickly went to a real promising future to disaster. And that huge deal Wiggins got looks worse and worse by the day. The wolves cant build around that deal and Wiggins either.
    • I do believe it will hurt baseball in the long run, as lots of people choose which games they go to based on who the starting pitcher is. Also, I could see it backfiring on a team by depleting their bullpen, should the starter in the next game get rocked early.
    • yes...they have been there probably for longer than that so what is 6 more months?  Not something I particularly am happy about but I am not the expert so I go off their recommendations and also it is expensive and other things were coming into play so here I hang. 
    • Butler is a locker room problem and that is evident now.  We just need to hope there is a team with assets that feel they can deal with his attitude and are willing to give us decent compensation.  Then we need our knucklehead coach/gm to think about the franchise and not himself and really get whats best for the Twolves future and not this season alone!  We have a good chip to deal.  We have 2 players that will be hungry to lead this team and show the nay sayers that they can play at a high level and win!! (hopefully)
    • This post was started in April and you still have Bats in your belfry?  😕 
    • oh and sorry about no update on this...I was told I couldn't do anything with them until Labor day as that is when the exterminator could feel good that any babies had learned to take flight.  Now I am waiting on the exterminator to come out and start remedying the issue but I am having troubles with that too!  I give this guy another week and then I am going to have to call someone else.  I don't look forward to this as it will cost most likely in the $1000 range is what I have been told.
    • Thanks for the replies!    I too have been running into the issue where shops refuse the business because it's "too old." I think the real excuse is they can't make enough money off the work. It's beyond my mechanical abilities unfortunately.    Actually, I just found a good deal on a newer and larger motor that would better suit my needs and am picking it up tomorrow. I'll be keeping the 4.5 horse so I'll follow up if I am successful with one of the suggested shops. 
    • Butler isn't going to stick around. I'd be surprised if he isn't dealt before camp begins Monday. We don't have to trade him to the three (garbage) teams he requested. I, for one, hope he gets traded to a team that benefits the Wolves and not Butler.    (I'm pretty upset he asks to be traded after a year that he cost us the chance of making a strong playoff push)
