Anyone have the latest and greatest on Morson area ice conditions?  Pretty early yet, but it’s been awfully chilly out there.

 

Thanks!

I checked ice on November 24. I went from my cabin across to Dawson i found 8 inches of ice. Might be headed to morson in the morning to do some fishing.

We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!

    • That’s about right.  I figured 5 inches of new powder.   Glad you’re getting out and enjoying your sled. 😎
    • Love these old sled commercials pretty sure they wouldn't get away with them today!  🤭    
    • It's not that hard to do, but it is a dirty, miserable job, it takes 2 people-1 feeding the blower the other in attic. See what the blower and insulation costs--then check the labor costs to have it put in.. Now you have to decide which way to have it done. Transportation of blower and insulation is something else to consider.
    • I have done it a few times in the past. It’s not a hard job but you’re going to get plenty dirty and like grainbelt said, if can get hot during the warmer months. You used to get the blower for free after buying a certain number of bags but I’m not sure that’s the case any more.    If if you do it be sure to think about your path out before you start. You want to start at the back and work your way to the access and not have to climb over any of the freshly blown insulation.    I have heard that some people would go up in the attic with a sharpie and measure how deep you want the insulation to be. Then mark the rafters. I’ve never done it that way. I’ve used a paint stir stick or something similar and just spot checked as I went along to make sure I got it to the desired depth.    The last time i helped helped a friend do this we had the blower in the back of a pickup and just backed up right under the access. One person in the box and the other in the attic. The machine we had didn’t have a remote shut off so the person with the hose would just plug it with their hand to signal the guy on the bottom to turn the machine off.    If you go go through with it yourself I’d buy one of the white disposable cloth suits to wear and a few dust masks. If you wear contacts I would take them out and wear glasses. And like rundave mentioned, make sure you’ve got the chutes installed so you get airflow from the soffit. 
    • Yes I was out almost everyday last week! Put about 50 miles on my Indy so far no issues loving it! I had a minor breakdown (lost a idle wheel) on the two up sled so I’m waiting on a new one for that. Trails were groomed from fort ripley up to Bena as of Saturday. They looked ok. Should be sitting ok after the dumping last night. Planning to get out and rip around some more this week! Went to Winnie on Saturday and ended up bringing the atv for travel but wish I would have brought the sled to cruise around some. 10” ice on Winnie. We had about 8-10” on ground at home before last night. Not sure how much last nights storm brought but heard from a buddy 4-6” fell. 
    • From Big Dave2:   Except you of course, Big Dave2, who definitely cared enough to respond. 😁😛
    • My mother used to make egg coffee for special occasions. That was 40 years ago so I don't remember how it tasted but a lot of old timers claimed it was the best. If you knew how to do it right the egg and grounds sunk to the bottom when you added a splash of cold water.
    • Thought I would add that distance will vary slightly depending on cargo. I put two catch covers in my car!     
    • Your auger shavings may be enough to block the hole from wind if you are just using it for a day at a time.
    • I had done it before when I was younger. Experience had taught me to pay someone this last time. It's a hot dirty dusty job up in the attic. Best suited for a small wiry guy.    It doesn't make a difference in deciding when to roof.
