Post by: glenn57 on January 21, 2014, 01:38:52 PM
just a quick report I got from one of my co-workers that lives on the south end of bowstring. lake conditions have not improved much. still fair amount of slush and only snowmobile travel is advised.
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on February 05, 2014, 01:32:16 PM
hearing reports things are improving up that way. very little slush and a bit more activity on the lakes!!!!!!

appears there is a fair amount  of grouse around, didn't chase them to hard. leaves are really starting to drop, mainly the maples and birch. poplar and oaks are still green. with the warm weather lot of boats out and sounded like a good amount of duck hunters.

From hearing friends and reading about grouse numbers increasing,It sounds as tho the area you hunt may be pickin up or is comming along slow.Friends in Nemadji SF say not much around,While Detroit lakes to ParkRapids say its pretty good.One from Redwing said more than ever before in the vermilion River valley.

ice is starting to form on the lakes up here. our bay had a good inch, especially around the dock. :banghead: :banghead: the main part of the lake is open due to the wind. if it gets still I am sure with the temps coming it will be iced over completely soon.
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on December 19, 2014, 01:21:41 PM
finally, will get ice time up there. looks like the weather will cooperate. ice is in great shape and very little to no snow!!!!!
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area

Post by: glenn57 on April 06, 2015, 01:38:02 PM
question for you guys. the lake the cabin is on has a public access. my nephew said one of his work friends came over to fish the lake. some lady comes barreling out and tells this Russian guy that's built like a brick outhouse that they are trespassing and that its a private lake. tells them she called the warden and there on there way.

is this the same as hunter harrassement? I drove down it yesterday and no one told me its private. :banghead: :banghead: I woulda had me some fun!!!!! :police:

Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on September 30, 2015, 09:52:44 AM
fishing report is as follows. did well with sunfish. did ok with nords nuttin worth pics. went to bowstring caught 1 eye and one little snot rocket for pickling! forgot to take picture of walleye?????????  But I got a good reason. when I got up there and unloaded the boat I must of somehow accidently flipped the interior lite on. also it was so calm I used the trolling motor extensively. when it was time to head in not enough juice in either battery to turn over the big motor. insert tears hear.

2 nice fisher people from ILLINIOS,  yep Lee there are a few, were kind enough to tow us in. leaves are staring to drop and change colors. seen only 1 grouse but didn't work to hard on them. still a lot of green under brush!!!!!!!

Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on January 03, 2016, 06:57:02 PM
had 8 1/2 inches of ice. fishing was OK. we got fish but biggest was about 6 lbs. also got some sunfish. maybe 5 inches of snow. seemed like they where starting to go in that mid-winter funk already. some pike weren't interested in the decoy and most the fish we cleaned had nothing in there stomachs.
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on February 05, 2016, 09:42:55 AM
got a call yesterday from my mother who is currently up at the cabin. seeing my brother backed out, he claims work got in the way but I know better!!!!!!!!!!! he's a corporate type and we all know they cant even spell work  much less know how to do any. well anyway his kid is supposed to be coming up tonite. they wanted to put a fishhouse out but encountered a lot of water on the ice. according to her it is as deep as the tire so I will take that as it is about 5 inches of water on top the ice. anyone else hearing things like that???????

our snow removal guy up there told mom that it rained pretty good up there last Friday!!!!!!
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on February 07, 2016, 01:19:40 PM

I'm so bored all I do nowdays is watch the puter!! An weather is a site I watch 5-7 times a day.Its been raining a considerable amount that way and here also. You should know rain melts icetop snow an makes more water than only rain. I never seen so much rain this time of year ever in Mn.!!
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on February 07, 2016, 02:20:33 PM
I see that BUT that much water???? holy canoly!!!!!!!! :doah: :surrender:
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: Onin24Eagle on February 07, 2016, 04:39:52 PM
The main reason is that there's not all that much ice is my guess. 

Best I've seen on the smaller lakes around the Bagley/Bemidji area is 16 inches and the same lakes with that much still have spots with only 11-12.  On average there's only 14.  That might be enough to hold a 1/2 ton truck and a 16ft wheelhouse but there's also 6-8 inches of snow on top of that ice.  You can drive over it a few times and if it cracks just a little the water will come gushing up.  I also saw some idiots drill holes to check the ice about 5 feet from the road on the lake and ruined a 100 ft stretch of the road.  Next day there was 6 inches of water in a 50 ft radius around the hole they drilled.

Post by: glenn57 on September 26, 2016, 08:54:36 AM
figured i'd best keep this up to date.

headed to the cabin after a work trip to Duluth. tough job ya know. stopped at Gunners and gave him a jar of pickled pike..........which he helped donate to. got to the cabin and lawn needed to be cut in certain areas. went out fishing and made 2 trips around the lake. 1 little snake nord.

nephew came up also to chase ducks............and he wasnt to successful. he did get 1 grouse. I went out grousing to but didn't see any. sat went out fishing as I needed 2 nords for smoking. in 8 casts......not trolling I had my 2. set up for sunfish.........got 10 enough for a meal dat was sat nite supper. nephew went out and got 15 sunfish!!!!! rained sat nite/early sunday headed fer home early!!! still quite a bit of leaves but that area still hasn't had a frost!!!!!

More rain last night & a steady 15-25 mph, gusts maybe to 30, NW wind along with mid 50's for a high. Some leaves comin down the last couple days but not like if we'd had a frost or 2. Thanks again for the fish, 57. ain't tried 'em yet.

Did the usual Sunday paper run & stopped at both the landings on our end of Bowstring. The 1 on Co Rd 35 had 2 trucks in the lot, they had both walked out just to check conditions. When they came in they stopped to talk to a truck that came in behind us, then climbed in their trucks & left when we did along with 1 more who had just came off the ice. We suggested they try Trails End. The PA on that side  wasn't much better. Walked out 75-100 yards here after getting back & found a minimum of 2 - 4" of slush with 6-8" in spots. With the forcast for the week, I don't see things getting any better anytime soon. Thursday before we return to somewhat normal temps. Anybody who has plans to come up this way, I suggest they call ahead.

We made our usual Sunday road trip over to the store today. I made a comment to the person working about the ground must be starting to warm up because some of the secondary roads are looking soft. She said the weight restrictions for them starts the 1st part of next week, so the frost is going out. Stopped at the 2 landings on Bowstring too & the 1 on the north end looked better than I thought it would, that might change by the end of tomorrow though. The 1 closer to us is pretty much out of commission as it looked tough to even get a wheeler out there. The top 5 slabs of concrete were all heaved up anywhere from 1-3' & the pressure ridge that caused it must be 6-7' high on the north side of the ramp.

With the forcast for rain, you should be OK, 57. I did notice in our travels yday that the 3 bridge(Portage, Inger, & Mosomo Pt) nearby have really opened up in the last week. Don't think I seen a wheelhouse on the road either. All the ones who looked to be fishin had wheelers & porties.

I know Geigers shut their access down to truck traffic but is open for wheelers. Our plan is to go off the North access with a wheeler. Last trip there was a big ice heave there with a truck hung up on it. Hopefully the goose is standing on the ice so we know where the fish are.     :happy1:

No standing water on the ice this am, so I made it out :fishing:. First hole I popped & 1st time down, I managed to catch 1. :happy1: That was it for the day, 2-3 hrs, though. Found 18" of good clear ice everywhere. A little slick out there & gettin off. Cooler overnight & not as much wind they're sayin for tomorrow, so hopin to give it another shot :fish2:

Driving to rapids sure don't see much snow off n the woods. Actually didn't see any till hill city. Thinking weekend after next will require a weekend at the cabin. Shouldn't be any snow by then.

Sitting at Tioga beach there are 5 wheelers out on pokegema! Judging by the ice sitting from the augered holes there can't be a whole lot there?

There were still a couple of trucks on Bow Saturday. Crazy!! There is still a lot of ice there but no way I would have been out there in a truck. The water that was standing on the ice Friday was gone Saturday so the ice is going to go fast now.

Went out and the goose must have had the weekend off. Saw him fly over but never stopped so we went where the raven was standing. We figured it was doing the weekend shift but no fish there. You can't trust that fill in help I guess. So we stopped by the banana peel on the ice and managed 15 crappies for two guys. The next day we had five guys and fishing was tough. Did manage a few but very slow. Sunday went to a small lake and got a mess of decent sunfish. Nothing huge but nice eaters. Good trip to end the season. Let the open water come!!         :happy1:

Not since Sunday :fishing:, probably start putting it away soon. They could put the nets in over on Cutfoot if they wanted. I'm sure they won't for a while though as a couple years ago they put them in early & then it got cold. They were in for 6 weeks that year. Must've seen 8 boats on the road today goin to town, most were on 46 headed north.

My favorite fishing, sunnies in the shallows. I would think this is really early yet but the fish master can catch them any time I guess. Going up next week to do a little work, might have to throw the rod in and check out a few spots. Glad you had a good weekend!!!       :happy1:

It got pretty nice yday afternoon so I decided to take the wheeler for a spin. Figured I would go over to the PA on Bowstring & see what it looked like now. The DNR did a good job of fixing it after the ice pushed the top 5 or 6 slabs of concrete 2-3' in the air. I followed a truck with a smaller( a little over 16') Crestliner over there. While there, I watched them launch & they had to back their truck in the water a long ways. By the time they got the boat off the trailer, using the outboard, only the front tires weren't in the water. There's NO WAY I would try to launch our Crestliner  FH 1750 at that access. If I wanted to fish that lake I would go to the Co Rd 35 PA. We could use some of Reb's rain. Probably won't get any until glenn comes back up though. :rolleyes:

Post by: glenn57 on June 01, 2017, 08:53:03 AM
we used the 35 access sat last weekend with no issues. got only 1 eye and 3 perch. i did talk to one of our members yesterday, he fished bowstring thursday and did well!!!!!!!! the AIS people where there. nice kid. but holy hannah was that parking lot full sat. rigs parked almost all the way out to the highway!!!!!!

That lake sees a lot of boats, I'm surprised it hasn't affected the fishing more. :scratch: People from other lakes, lots of resorters from all over the county, even the locals fish the snot out of it.It's just about as bad in the winter. Kind of glad they all go over there, means a lot less here. :happy1:

man was it quiet up there this weekend, well except for the loons and eagles makin all kinds of racket.  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: bugs were bearable, except for them ankle biting monster, annoying little flies in the boat, but 1 is  to many as far as i'm concerned. did have a boat or 2 out now and again, but only one was up there over the weekend that has a place on the lake. gotta love it, kinda why i plan these trips the weekend prior to or after these big 3 day weekends!!!!!!!!!

got my fishing fix in, cut split and hauled wood. had a couple fires and just a few  :toast: :toast: oh yea set my trap line too!!!!!!!! got 8 mouses!!! less critters to chew up fishhouse canvas and other things. bet i've disposed 20 of them rodents already this year!!!!!!!

I forgot to add that you may run into the county guys with the Decon unit as they sit over there a lot on the weekends, at least thru the holiday. They just want to pressure wash your boat with hot water so you don't bring any Zeebs back to your lake. Only takes 10, maybe 15 minutes.

Well made it home by noon today. Wanted to beat the traffic. Was already backed up 2 blocks in Crosby about 10 am. Judging by the traffic on 10 I'd bet Royalton was a disaster too. I took the back roads.

Anyway went to gunners lake Friday, how ya can troll for 4 hours and not get any of them little snot rockets is beyond me. But man I took a beating going back to the access. Wowzer it was windy. The AIS guy musta been bored, he sure was talkative. Nice guy, find out he lived in my neck of the woods at one time. Said he works for itasca Co.

Got sunfish on our lake, just didn't get into fishing this weekend. :scratch:

"We did". You have company? :scratch: Was it the AIS guy? Rich(tall / lanky), I think it is or was it Brian( short / beard) from Max who leads the Decon unit? I was out on Friday morning until 10, maybe 11 & kind of looked for you on this end of the lake. I didn't see anything blue on the water. :laugh: Thought it was too windy for ya. With that wind direction getting the boat back on the trailer by yourself can be a bit tricky.

Post by: glenn57 on September 05, 2017, 08:52:53 AM

Yeah he likes to jaw, so you 2 should've gotten along great. ;) :rotflmao: Bet we've crossed paths 5-6 times & yeah, it's hard to get out there in 10-15 minutes. I always got a watch on & usually can guess pretty close what time it is even if I've been out in the boat for 3-4 hrs. But I can forget what day of the week or month pretty easy. :bonk: :laugh: You didn't answer my question, you have company?

As of this morning it sounds like the worst is going north of us :happy1:. URL & LOW area, heard up to 7" & 40 mph winds for them. It looks like glenn is going to get his wish for some snow to make deer hunting better. :bonk: ;) :laugh:

Post by: glenn57 on November 17, 2017, 02:36:08 PM
the lake was completely locked up this past weekend.

hey gunner.............. have you heard anything about this R & K Construction out of Marcell????

what about a Joel Olson..............they both do dirt work.
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: Gunner55 on November 18, 2017, 08:49:12 AM
Nope, don't know anything about 'em. I could check with the rest of the people around the lake, if you wanted. It wouldn't take but a few minutes to post something over on the Nextdoor SL site & see if any of them have experience with them. You might sound out merc or snowfighter & see if they can help ya. Are you starting to look into your project at the cabin for next season? Need to pour a slab? I checked the resorts webcam yday & seen a lot of bare ground with a bunch of open water out in the bay
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area

Post by: Gunner55 on November 18, 2017, 09:47:20 AM
I know that a couple people around the lake had trouble getting 1 or 2 of the companies in the area that do that kind of work to even come out & give them a bid on some driveway work. They tried for better than a year & no show. Think that was the 1 on the west side of Mn 6 between Riley's & Hayslips Corner though, T & T excavating(?) :scratch:

I'm only a mile away from B&K but never talked to anyone who had work done by them. Met the owner one time and we was a great guy, had a good time talking to him, but that's about all I know. When I go up fishing I will check with some of my local buddies and get a report. Joel I have heard of but again I will check on him also. Not much help but I will let you know what I find out.     :happy1:

Thought it looked like a bass :scratch:  until mike called it a walleye, over on UMO. Was about to say somethin smart about you & walleyes, but thought I'd be nice..............for a change :laugh:. Just seen another post from Nextdoor/Sandlake with a pic of the PA. It looks like there's ice about 5-10' out from shore but out from that is a gap of 15-20' of open water. :scratch: Couldn't really tell but it looked to me that the open water went all the way from the point just north of the PA & ran all the way to the south along the east shore of the narrows. The person taking the pics is the only 1 in the part of the lake that's there year around & has to plow down to the PA so they can get out. He said in the 22 years he's been on the lake he's never seen it like this before.

well its probably as close to a walleye as i might get!!!! :doah: :doah: figured i'd add a bit of humor to it!!! looks like its below 0 up there so it should freeze up here soon.

He pretty much blamed it on all the nasty cold weather. You know if they're really goin there'd be 50 outfits out there by 9 am.

no it was OK getting around with the wheeler. i think the guys over on bowstring drove vehicles out. i'd watch for drifts at this point not to bad, i did notice there was a crust on.the snow. once i got rid of my 2 place snowmobile trailer and switched to a sled behind the wheeler it was way easier.

Had 3* early, gettin snow now, not supposed to amount to much. We've had snow 3 maybe 4 times, before today, since the week we arrived & only 1 time did we get the wheeler out to plow. Took a peek at the long range forcast yday & it looks like we could have a stretch of normal to above normal temps starting a week from tomorrow. :scratch:

Went down to the lake to clean off the Indy 500 & the otter. Started the sled & decided to take a little ride, Made it as far(50 yds) as the road they plowed this weekend & didn't like what I saw. Took a little stroll to see what it was like to keep goin with the sled. Not good, I turned the sled around & pulled it off the lake using the nearby resorts landing. Put it on the trailer & pulled it home. :sad: With the present forecast, I don't see how anyone is going to get around out there. Here comes the slush, could easily be a mess until the ice goes out. Most seasons that's around the 1st or 2nd week of April here.

Did see 1 of the neighbors up the road out there walking, looked like he had snow shoes to me & pullin a small sled, late this afternoon. Then just before it started gettin dark seen a couple sleds come racing in to the resort, didn't look like they were pulling any gear to me. Don't think I'll be trying it again for a while.  :sad: :pouty:

Seen another neighbor heading out :fishing: on his sled after we got home yday. He's got his own trail all packed down on the other side(west) of the area where the group from the resort plowed & drilled a bunch of holes last weekend. He's a walleye guy & has a shack out on the main lake though. Might be a pain in :moon: for some in this area gettin their shacks off this season. It  looked to me like Geigers had all theirs sitting in front of the lodge already Monday

Post by: merc on February 28, 2018, 12:00:50 PM
Most of those by Geigers  are private houses that keep them up and pull them out when they come up. He plows a spot by shore for them to park them when they leave. Nice deal but I don't know what he charges.   :happy1:

On the way into GR today there were still 3 smaller wheelhouses & 3 more rigs pullin sleds or wheelers headed north on Hwy 46 about 8:30-9. Found open water on both sides of the Hwy 46/Cutfoot/Mosomo Pt bridge that wasn't there last week. Quite a bit more on both sides of the Pokegama Dam that is west of GR along Hwy 2 as well. Last week there wasn't any on the east  side of the dam

Had somebody out on the bay early yday, looked to me like he walked out from the other shore. He came back out after a bit with some others & they were on sleds. They were out until about lunch time & then again about 3:30-4. Looked like there was some activity over on Bowstring too as the wheelhouses out in front of Trails End were on the move. It seems like we've had our snow here melt and/or settle maybe 4-5". We've got some yard showing on the north side of the kitchen, wait until 4 straight days in the 40's that are predicted for the end of this coming. week

Nope, but they did mention hearing about a couple sleds goin through the ice on a river or 2 in the area. Seen 1 in drive off Co Rd 35 yday, as we were coming back, that must've had some recent action & it looked to be pretty muddy. Our road & drive is starting to get greasy in a few spots, wait 'till the end of the week. :mad1:

I don't think getting in to your place will be much trouble as we've lost quite a bit of the snow & the ground will be froze for a while. Getting around on the lake is going to be another story though, I think. I pulled our sled off the lake after the last snow of the week we got >2', that was 2/26. The only ones I've seen out on the bay since then are sleds or wheelers with tracks on them.

Heard from a lady from Illinois that has a place over on the NW corner of the boot( off Co Rd 155) & was coming up last Monday. She wanted to know about the snow left too, Because of the storm last weekend she didn't get up here until Wednesday. She said that about the only trouble traveling she had was the 3' of snow at the end of her drive. I think she hadn't been up since December & was only driving a small car. So, I would think you'd be OK with the company car, glenn

Seen that on WCCO this morning too. Bet we've lost more than 1/2 our snow in the last 2-3 days, & 2/3 to 3/4 of what we had when we came up on 4/3. The puddles of standing water have started disappearing as well, warmer temps & with the wind today things are drying out quickly. With the low water levels from last year it wouldn't take much to look like California does sometimes. Bet we are getting close to 1' of good clear ice out here but Tim over at the store said his boys were over on Bowstring yday & bottomed out their auger in some spots. Thought we seen a small truck out there today on our way to get the paper. The Co Rd 35 access is getting very close to unusable, the 1 over by us was much better. Geiger's has had their plow truck parked on their ramp blocking it for 2 weeks, if not longer.

Just got back from the north land. There were two full size trucks drove out on Bowstring Saturday, I had to put my extension on my Ion to reach through the ice. It is starting to come up in chunks so it should start melting down fast now. Fished two smaller lakes and not as much ice but still a lot considering the time of year it is. Fishing was pretty good and I did manage a 10 3/4" and a 10 1/8" sunfish. Also had a few crappies over 12". Had a lot of eater size we kept so a good finish to the ice season.       :happy1:

Looked to us yday that both the PA's on our end are going fast. Brother said there was 1 guy over at the north access that even left his wheeler on shore & walked out. Only 1 truck down at the NW 1 & it looked like he had 5-10' of water along shore & then another 15-20' of some pretty deep slush to deal with when he put in.

The webcam at Williams Narrows shows ice on both sides of their channel. Bet the open water along our shore has more than doubled(~ 30' now) in the last day or so though. I haven't heard any noises like the ice is movin here yet though.

so i just read in the local newspaper a couple guys from the foley area have court dates in grand rapids in the near future. one of them owns a cabin in the area. apparently these guys where setting snares that were illegal in many forms. the wardens had cameras up and were watching them.  they had illegally harvested deer, bear, timberwolves, and cuyotes with these snares. also found a dead beaver with a bullet to the head which is illegal. these snares are supposedly to be checked every day and for one stretch they had not been checked for 11 months.

according to the article this occurred south of northome in the alvwood area, home of da hoot-n-holler!!!!!!!!!

Glenn, sorry I missed your post about Lt. Ranier and by the way you can have your skeeters back as I didn't need any more. They put a fence up about three years ago and the township made them take it down as it was next to the road. I heard he was getting a lawyer to fight that and maybe that's why it's back up. I don't understand how he can put a fence up that close to the road and the lake but who knows. I'm going up Monday and I'll check it out and ask around if anyone knows what happened. I fished it a couple of times and all we got were small panfish but I heard there are some nice northern in there. I'll let you know what I find out. Have a great day.     :happy1:
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: glenn57 on June 19, 2018, 08:13:08 PM
thanks.....just curious. the fence is in the water a ways. yea we really had to weed thru the sunfish but man did we get some nice pike spearing it. I seen one that had to go 20 lbs swim thru just beyond my hole and right below the ice.

we didn't know it froze out, an olde guy came and talked to my buddy he said that spring he had 3 pike as long as his walking cane dead on his shore. put them in his garden for fertilizer.

I did a lot of spearing up there when I was young, that was more than 20 years ago.    :rotflmao:   There were some really good lakes up there back then.  Now it's tough to find a lake with any decent size norts.

It hit here at 6:30 & I couldn't even see 5' out the basement window. The last weather warning that came across the tv said the storm was moving at 75 mph & had 75 mph winds. When I could finally see out to our shoreline the top of flagpole was rockin back & forth 2-3'. It sounds like the rain has let up some in the last couple minutes. We had a power glitch but it came right back on & the generator never kicked on. Bet it made your new shed project into a mudhole, 57. Haven't seen a storm up here like that in a very long time. We had a little rain yday afternoon, 2:00-3:00, but when we got back from the septic seminar around 8 we had less than .2" in our gauges.

Another round last night, light show started ~ 2:00, a hard rain started ~ 2:30. It sounded like it let up some around 3:30 but didn't quit until closer to 4, I think. Nowhere near the wind of a night before but we had twice the rain, 1.9" in one of the gauges. Pushin 3" the last 2 nights, so, 57, when you do come up next time make sure you don't forget the bug spray.

so, after being in red wing till 5pm last friday, got home and headed nort for 4 days. i got to the deer river areas about midnight, give or take a bit. it rained like a cow pizzin, i mean it poured. at 15 miles an hour i could barely make out hwy 2 going into deer river.

sat am i had a little union work to do. got that done and headed to little turtle, got rained off by 5 pm. trolled around the lake 3 times with nary a strike. i firmly believe the rain thunder and lightning put a damper on fishing. it was long pants and a sweatshirt da

sunday, was hot humid and windy as hell, kinda like some of you guys flapping your jaws. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: we stayed on cabin lake. caught 26 sunfish, trolled around the lake 7-8 times kept a weed carp and let go a bunch of little snot rockets.

monday we went to a maple lake, not far from big turtle. was cold and windy, another sweatshirt day. kept 14 sunfish and 3 nords. back at cabin, cleaned them, started a fire, drank beer and started packing to head out. headed home tuesday am.

'Bout the only place most of 'em go anyway as far as I know, so what's goin elsewhere doesn't really matter to them.  Another post an hour ago from the west side & they had a big long crack in front of their place. Another from more over by us, couple places east of Portage bridge, posted about a 1/2 hr ago & he said there's still open running water in the boot. That doesn't surprise me as there's a lot more current goin through there.

Last weather map I seen(this am on TWC) had it movin in Wednesday night, through Thursday, & maybe even into Friday down here. That map had it staying from the metro & south, with us being in the heaviest band of snow, maybe some rain & freezing rain Thursday afternoon depending on the temps. It's a long ways off :scratch: but planning on keepin an eye on it. Radar looked like they got some snow up there today to me

I friend of mine's kid is up there on bowstring. apparently he talked to him today. said they fished a lake little something or another, he couldn't remember the name!!! :doofus: :doofus:

anyway they were out on bowstring today, got some crappies nice perch and sunfish. the sunfish part I don't believe.

as far as the slush he said some spots have it some don't. he didn't elaborate.

I read a report over on IDO from a guy from grand rapids that said he took a snowmobile out on an area lake rain into frozen slush then would break threw then hit hardpack. it sounded pretty tough out on that particular lake.

Just checked the snow on the cabin roof yday here & it looks like we might have about 1/2 of what we did last year. That was in February & we couldn't find a snow rake anywhere in GR, so he ordered 1 online. We had somebody out front of our place late am-early pm yday in a small 1 man Clam flip over. I didn't see them set up but seen 'em leave & it was 1 of the neighbors. He was on foot & it didn't look like he had any problems getting around.

ok, so I needed to know what i'd be dealing with if I went fishing up north. I left at 5;45 am. about 10 miles south of remer I ran into freezing drizzle. fun fun. the roads did get better north of deer river and were way improved on the way home. once I got there it took me about 50 minutes to do what I wanted to do. there was 8-10 inches of new snow on the road, and other then to shovel a berm from a plow I wouldn't at this point be afraid to drive in. I shoveled off the cabin deck and headed on the lake.


on the shoreline there was a fair amount of snow but you could get through it with a wheeler. there was a really light thin crust but the rest was soft and fluffy snow. out about 20 yards the snow was maybe 2 inches. I shoveled it away and you could see it was frozen slush. I walked out 300 yards or so just fine, barely any snow and solid.


I noticed the public access someone half azz plowed it so I wanted to get out further to see if there was any activity in the main part of the lake. there was still a fishhouse out also, I made another 20 steps, and paloosh thru I went. there is a good 6 inches of water and slush. then you would get to solid, make few step and go thru again. you could also see where the person with the fishouse had issues with his heeler and slush...………..so I headed back.


it appears we have 4-5 wolves in the area also. did see 3 grouse! :happy1: so as of now I will be waiting till that crap feezes up. looks like starting Tuesday nite it will have a good start.

Had a group out in the bay  :stillfish: yday, not long after glenn left. Thought is was just 3 on foot :scratch: but after lunch they had 3 more on sleds show up. Around 2 or so they moved over to this side of the bay for a bit. When it looked like they were starting to shut it down the sleds did a loop in front of our place to turn around so they could shuttle some back to where ever they were stayin. It looks like they found a lot of slush as they got closer to our shore. I didn't see any of 'em get stuck but they had their sleds movin pretty good. Was thinking about checking the ice conditions out in the next couple days & tryin to get out  :fishing: before the cold snap comes. Now I'm not so sure it's even worth my time  :scratch:

When I fished here on the river the other day there was a lot of slush too.  I may have to put another row of 2x4's under my house.  That snow must have pushed the ice down.

Talking to Chris, they own the place, over at Bowstring Store yday about the amount of snow we found when we came up. She said they had 15" right after Christmas & another 2 or 3" that weekend. Someone was buying minnows so  :fishing: got brought up too. She had a pic of her son with a 17# norski he'd speared the day before.

So....how do you use the decoys to get 'em? Jig 'em? I've never spear fished.  :confused:
I hang a reel above the hole, use a swivel snap with swivel removed on braided line. Drop down the home roughly 1/2 between the bottom of the lake and bottom of the ice. They ate built with fins so they swim in a circle. Wait for fish. Sometimes them pine come in like a freakin torpedo. Fun to watch.
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: mike89 on January 14, 2019, 03:09:25 PM
you are both right, the decoy would just hang there other wise.  give the string a good tug and they will go in an upward swing into a circle..  depending on the bend in tail fin defines how big or small a circle they swim..    hope this helps ya both...
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: Rebel SS on January 14, 2019, 03:15:22 PM

There hasn't been much activity out on the bay all week. I think :scratch: the neighbor who usually has a skid house out on the main lake went out twice early in the week. He's here year 'round so he marks & maintains his own trail most years. Monday he was on his sled & Tuesday he took his wheeler, seen him doin a little patch work on his trail with his wheeler/blade. Bet he was worried about the slush & cold freezing his house in, bet he blocked it more.

Mom said my nephew wants to go up next weekend and grandma ain't none to happy about it. He thinks he will drive right in. Some lady ran into him last week and they totaled his 4 wheel drive vehicle. So.... The tight as little f@_-& won't pay to get it plowed out but runs up there right after someone else foots the bill.

I gotta believe next week's temps gotta freeze up that slush, that of course depends on how much snow they get with the next storm supposedly coming tomorrow.

This Afternoon: A 50 percent chance of snow.  Cloudy, with a high near 7. Wind chill values as low as -9. East wind around 10 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.  Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

so I heard from my brudder, his kid decided to head to the cabin for the weekend as he always does super bowl weekend. sounds like the plow guy plowed down into the neighbors and left a big bank going down into our place.

he also said the pilot light on the furnace was out and now wont stay lit. wonder iffin that's got something to do with the LP regulator stuff freezing up>???????????
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: Gunner55 on February 03, 2019, 12:53:48 PM
Pretty sure that's what caused our problems. :scratch: The owner over at HH that day said he was going out every 2 hours & pouring warm water on his regulator, that got his to light but wouldn't stay running. Probably because it was still getting colder as it hasn't hit the low for the day yet. Lately here it isn't until an hour or so after sunrise (8-8:30) that it hits the low for the day. Once we took it off auto so it wouldn't need so much LP flow to start & stay runnin ours was OK. We didn't put it back in normal(auto) mode 'till much later in the day, late am-early pm, & it's been fine since. Brother did a little research & found that LP can start freezing up @ -40.

A buddy has a wheel house and when it's cold he'll run an extension cord from the generator to his lp box with a light bulb on the end to add just enough heat to keep the regulator from freezing.

Good idea. I actually did that with my metal trouble light and sump pump outlet, where it goes thru the wall to outside. (I take the 2" hose off during winter and hang a drain tiling hose on the outlet until it's warm in the Spring)  Hung the cage right up against it. Had flooding then the temp dropped to around zero for a week.

Brother went out this morning for about an hour & got most of the drive cleared, except the plows hadn't went by. I went out after lunch when it quit for a hour or so & spent around a 1/2 hour cleaning up around the cabin. Bet we were close to 8" by then & it's lightly snowing again now. The wind has been picking up since around 2 as well. I'd think the roads aren't very good around here either.

My brother keeps pestering me about if I'm still going up spearing the last weekend it's open. I know his ulterior motive is to have me pay to plow the road out. Ain't happening. He wants to go up March  8-9 weekend. I'm having a hard time getting it through his thick skull that without plowed roads lake travel is limited to snowmobile. Hope he has fun.

I've been waiting for this madness to slow up a bit before I head out. Looked at the roof vents cant see em. Tge stacks are visible but there is a good size drift on the south side, soooooooo might just hafta blow the dust off the rake and do some dragging. It's funny though,  if I mow, the neighbors mow, if I shovel, they come out and shovel.  It will be interesting if I rake, to see if tgey do..

I see we have visitors over at the resort again this weekend, 6 pickups & some trailers over there. One sled with a couple guys was out front not long after we were done with bfast. They were packin up by ~ 10:30 & another snowmobile came out to visit at that time. It took 4 guys 20 minutes to get that sled back to the resorts landing( 200-300 yds), they kept getting stuck. I think they finally had to flip the sled on it's side to clean it out between the seat & the track. :doofus:

Seen a couple of pop up type shelters over at WN on Cutfoot yday. Just west of the Narrows & not far from shore. Looked like they had a sled or wheeler, couldn't really tell. Very little movement over at TE on Bowstring lately. Tim over at the Bstore told us that Geiger's busted up his brand new plow real bad twice this year. :pouty: :thumbs:

Anywhere from a light mist to a light rain/snow mix all day here, wind picked up late mornin too. Nothing but water on the ice out in front of Geiger's & the webcam on Cutfoot is almost that bad. It looks like nothin but slush & water out 50 yds west of the Narrows to me, there does appear to be somebody out there to the NW though. :crazy: It looks like they have a plow & wheeler(?) :scratch: & trying to get a shack off the ice.

A little later 2 more sleds riding double came in to the resort & 1 of those was pullin an Otter. Thought  :confused: it looked like some fresh tracks over at Trails End as well.

Talked to a member of ours. He headed north last weekend. Mainly to clean up snow. Didn't even try to go on the lakes. He said ya do not wanna go out on a snowmobile by yourself our into the boonies. Get stuck, your screwed. He also said he didn't see many deer tracks, thinks there all hearded up somewhere or died.

Seen a couple sleds out here yday & there was a group over at the resort last week that was going out everyday too. :shocked: The surface of the ice turned a lot more gray here yday. Ain't seen many deer 'round here since right before the rain we had. No tracks either but snow probably makin it hard for them to move much.

Must've been 50 yds of open water at Mosomo Pt/Cutfoot bridge when we went by early yday, a lot of current there though.  The big river was open from Cohasett to the dam west of GR too. I think  :scratch: the normal time for taking spawn on Little Cutfoot is ~ mid April, probably won't make that but I wouldn't be that surprised to have ice out earlier than the last couple years when it's been the week of opener.

I see where they cut way back on Saturday's rain chances (20%) up there now. Increased Sundays to 100% though. I'd be surprised if the furnace didn't work for ya too & it was just the -40*. It's not that old is it? Upper 40's to low 50's is what I'm seein. :happy1: Be safe, have fun, & leave some :fish2: for seed. :cool: :smiley:

well that really sucked, furnace wouldn't go. so I came home last night and drowned my sorrows. :violin: :tequila; :drinking: driving in that fog till it got light also sucked.

when I got up there had to shovel a big drift to get in but once past that easy peasy. I walked in the cabin and found a thermo couple and other little parts I assume where thermos couple parts laying on the floor in front of the furnace. there was a screw driver still laying on the propane tank. I spent 2 1/2hours on and off trying to get the pilot to light. no go. l had no idea what he did. so I packed up and headed home. I did get all my stuff i left up there home.

I have a question for all the smart "up nort" guys.       :scratch:      Not you Glenn.   ;)    My buddy asked me if a person can bear hunt and deer hunt at the same time. I would think bear bait would be considered hunting over bait although deer wouldn't be attracted to it.

:tut: :tut: :tut: :moon:

well for starters, the first 15-16 days or so the bear season is open archery season is not. after that not sure????? I don't use a bow to bear hunt. and iffin i'm out looking for bear I have no interest in shooting a deer. besides I think dat deers and bears, oh my, don't really get along?????????
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: Steve-o on April 11, 2019, 01:13:18 PM
I didn't see anything explicit in the regs about shooting deer over bear bait.  However, this is what they say about deer baiting...

Definitions
• Bait—includes grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, hay, or other food that is
capable of attracting or enticing deer and has been placed by a person.
• Baiting—means placing, exposing, depositing, distributing, or scattering
bait that is capable of attracting or enticing deer.

I would certainly think that anything you legally put out for a bear would fall into the category of what was illegal for deer.

Is my garbage bag full of day-old doughnuts capable of enticing a deer?  I don't know, but I'd hate to have to argue with a Conservation Officer that is isn't.

No, It is considered baiting deer hunting over bear bait. That was actually one of the ask a CO questions that Lee put up awhile back.

Yup anything that is attracting them with any type of food is illegal bait.  I have gotten pics of deer eating my bear baits.

Could see rain drippin off the roof pretty good over at Geiger's already before 7:00 this morning. That should speed up ice out a bit.  :happy1: Not as easy to tell how hard it was raining over at the Narrows :scratch:. The ice on the west side is disappearin pretty quick the last few days though.

All I see over by us is very little right in front of their deck/porch on the office & out on the ice on the north side of their ramp is kinda white too. The ice the other way(SE) looks a look a lot more gray. The other camera shows maybe an inch or 2 along their north facing shore line.
