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!!

    • 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?  
    • What the frequency Kenneth?
