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!!

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
