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.

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.

so, while i was up at the cabin i tried just fishing off the dock a few times. nuttin. tuesday nite  i walked down to the dock and i finally noticed what appeared to be small fish hitting the top maybe chasing bugs. i had already loaded my fishing stuff in the car and had no desire to possibly clean fish so i decided another day. so the migration to shallow waters might start soon.

i walked down to the little lake behind us. seen a couple loons across the lake frolicking like love sic teenagers, or reb and the NL!!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: along the shoreline i could see 2 trumpeter swans sitting there motionless, almost like they were protecting a nest. :scratch: :scratch: pretty fun to watch!!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

A couple days of decent weather & I would think they'd be using it. Pretty shallow & very clear water so they'd be pretty spooky. Seen a couple different colored ducks, black & white body with a orangish brown head chasin a female around out in front of our place this am too.

by that you mean we caught them all  :scratch: :rotflmao: :rotflmao in all seriousness It really doesn't surprise me. I've expected this sooner or later. From the first years we fished the lake till now  the water level has dropped 10 ft. There's no inlet or outlet. No known springs unless it's in the boggy areas and there is plenty of that.

Post by: Bobberineyes on May 29, 2019, 04:11:46 PM
That does stink Glenn,  I have a hard time thinking it's not naturally fed by springs or creeks,  but if you say it lost that much water you've been on barrowed time for catching fish. We had a real bad bug hatch last Friday , the bro is still out there and the fishing just dropped off. Spose your bro didn't see a bug hatch that away.. By the way do all winter kill fish float to the shore ?? Or do they sink sometimes??

The guy has dogs so it's safe. He said it last thru rain. He swears by it, I'll be trying in in a couple weeks. I posted it somewhere :scratch:. But here it is.

2 bottles of mouthwash to 2 gallons water.
Couple tablespoon of Epson salt. This has something to do with it diluting the mouth wash in the water.
I'm gonna us a pump sprayer for lawn weeds, eti stopped at the dollar tress in red wing got 2 bottles for 2 bucks. You use the cheap stuff and preferably a mint flavor.

It looks like my next project is to roll the lift out farther as it was all the way down & the boat didn't want to float off this morning. Just eye ballin the space between the dock & the water I would venture to guess the the lake is down at least 6-8", maybe 10" since we put it in ~ a month ago. (5/6(?))

Got back from my fourth trip and we finally got a few walleyes. Got some nice panfish also in 10 feet of water. Best trip so far, had a good fish fry and a coupe of the guys brought some fish home. The skeeters are horrible, especially by the lake. Let me know how your repellent works Glenn.   :happy1:

well I came back a day earlier then I planned...……….and NO RAIN while I was up there. unfortunately that east lake has had to freeze out or a severe winter kill. trolled around it for 3 hours, not a fish nor a strike. spent 45 minutes all over the lake with my underwater camera and seen absolutely nothing. only sign of life I seen was 2 loons and about 15 minnows where ya throw the boat in.

to make matters worse, fishing the lake the cabin is on, Thursday evening there wasn't a sunfish to be had. did a little trolling and caught sand lake type snakes. went out the next day and brought the camera with. I went to 8 tried and true spots where we have always caught fish and never seen a sunfish. back to trolling a guys fishing off his dock and asks how we are doing, so being the nice pleasant good guy I am I stopped the motor and we talked a bit. he said he was up when the ice went out and he quit counting after he counted over 200 dead fish on the shoreline. he said all kinds of fish and had 2 bass 24 inches.

that's really sucks!!!!!! :angry2: :angry2: :angry2:

on another note that concoction worked pretty darn good for sqeeter control. it lasted till this morning but the humidity went up, so????? i'll do it again, cause if you  went away from the treated area any distance they where real bad.

now i'm even more sure of myself the lake cabin is on had a severe winter kill. over this past weekend i walked down to the lake and slowly on the dock. it be nothing to see a bunch of small sunfish/punkinseeds little bass etc swim around and out under the dock. in the 5-6 maybe 7 times i did this i seen a total of 1 sunfish and 4 punkinseeds. :angry2: :confused:

both friday and sat evening the lake was like glass. in the past you could watch all across the bay and see fish fan the top of the water and/or feeding on the bugs.  there was none of that.

how depressing................looks like i'm gonna head gunners way!!!!!!!!!!! if he could only catch fish!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

:scratch: Were you causin trouble while you were up here too, glenn? :evil: :tut: Heard a police report on the radio on the way home from GR today that said they had a report of property damage in Spring Lake. It was on Peterson, you get into it :mad1: with the neighbors. ;) :laugh:
:tut: :tut: not me!!!!!! :angel: :angel: :angel: I don't have time to get in trouble up there. any other details?????? for a labor day weekend I thought it was unusually quiet over the whole weekend. what side the lake, any names of the place?

my kid did get check by a CO sunday morning coming out from behind the store. checked his license, and gun. he has it in a hard case and the CO took it out to see if he had a shell chambered.

but when he seen his last name he new he was an honest law abiding citizen. :happy1: :happy1:

didnt get much fishing in, but FINALLY got my boat in a lake. ended up with 2 meals. 12 sunfish, 7 crappies.
He's really not that fussy either :tut: 'cause he does catch & eat crappies. ;) :smiley:

well i recieved an email from  the grand rapids fisheries people. long story short, they dont give 2 sheets about those little lakes. :angry2: :angry2: :angry2: :confused: :banghead: :banghead: training-087 training-087

the lake north of us we fish pike at. they said...........the water level is extremeely low expanding the shallow area used by plants and suseptable to winter kill. the deep basin doesnt have the capacity to maintain stress free oxygen levels throughout the year. he says unfortunelty it doesnt make sense to do an introductory restocking until the water levels rise and conditions become favorable.

on the lake the cabin is on...............he said the lake did not get checked, but while the lake has a history of an occasional winter kill its likeley these kill have been incomplete.apparently someone, not us called and claimed winterkill in 2015 but found fish present.he mentioned several lakes in the area have partial winterkill and are good fishereies,and basiclly said the lake may be "resetting  :doofus: itself cause pike and sunfish tend to be density dependent. he did say if we dont catch anything next year to call and they'd do some sampling.

Didn't see a boat. I drove behind the store there looking for a guy I know that has a place back in a ways. Didn't know they were logging. It was a muddy mess and met two logging trucks so I never did get back where I wanted to go. You are a ways off the road. How the heck do you make it in winter? My buddy didn't get a bear this year so we gave it one more try but no luck. He did have a shot earlier in the season but messed that up.  Oh well we do have three doe permits so maybe that will be better!!

 I didn't get down to the lake 'til Monday last week when the sun finally came back out. :sad: It was EZ to tell as the boat came off the lift that the lake was up 3-4" or more from where it was when we left. Water's so high & with our bank we're going to have to jack up the lake side of the lift again when we pull it just to get it out of the water. Hope it drops some yet before we get ice as ice out got a bit hairy last Spring.

We had a few flurries here during the day on Thursday but not enough to even tint the ground white. Now Friday night & early Saturday was a different story as the ground was white early on. It didn't stay long though as it turned to rain on & off later. I saw where the lady who is the WCCO Weather Watcher for Inger reported 2" on Saturday morning. She lives on the south shore of the main lake over by where the river comes in. Nowhere near the 4" you said you had up there though.

Sorry to hear about your buddy, glenn. :sad: Just glanced at his place yday on our way back from GR & thought somethin looked different. Messed around with the lift this AM & brought it in to just about the rip rap. It's still sittin in enough water that I could put the boat on it. :crazy: I put some rope on it when we had the last nice weather & the lake has came up another 2-3" since that time. I can only remember 1 time when it was higher. Dad had a  little 2 stall boathouse, galvanized pipe for posts along with a galvanized roof, down there & we had to lay some planks along the shore to get to it. Had to be late 70's-early 80's.

After messin with the lift a bit yday we decided that with the water so high we weren't going to be able to put it where we usually do as only the front wheels were barely going to be out the water. Last season at ice out the water level had come up so much from all the snow & the strong NW wind pushed the ice against our shore, movin the lift sideways 2-3'. Not wanting a repeat of that we called the GR guy who runs a barge service that many others on the lake use at this time of year & in the Spring. Got the answerin machine when we called but he called back within 5-10 minutes & it turns out he has 10-15 other jobs out here coming up in the next week or so, depending on the weather. He's gonna move it 30-40' north where the bank is cut away a bit & put it up completely on shore for us for only $75. :happy1: It was a big relief for us so we had to check out HH. ;) :rolleyes: :laugh: Not that busy over there at 1st but by the time(5:30-6)we left it was full, a lot of food too. Heard a rumor while we were there that the place had been sold, but not even the help seemed to know much about it. :scratch:

There are a lot of posts on Nextdoor about it icing up. Some drone shots from the weekend showed a big area of open water in front of the PA & a ways north up the narrows as well as another big area from shore to shore just south of the islands on Sand. The cold temps last week helped I'm sure but the wind of Sunday/Monday probably took care of some of that. Just peeked at Modis yday as it was the 1st clear day in a while. Didn't look real close but Leech & Winnie/Cutfoot looked pretty close to being locked up.

it was weird driving up, north of Emily you could tell they had freezing rain. north of remer that and some snow. cty rd 11, or the deer river shortcut was snow packed as usual. hwy 6 north of deer river about the otenagen road was absolutely horrid.

yea they appeared to be a little slow with road plowing.
Not surprised 1 bit, the neighbor tells us that if there's no school a lot of the secondary roads don't get plowed. We found that to be true when we're up there this time of year so we go the other way. More traffic that way & the roads are usually much better.

I hear ya about the snow plowing up there. Highway 286 by me has to be the last state road to get plowed in the entire state. Oh by the way i'm finally around again after two and a half months of going up hunting. First my buddy had a bear license, then he bought a cross bow so that and then rifle hunting. Time to get the ice gear ready and hopefully it won't be another  slush filled winter like last year.    :happy1:

Heard some slushy reports already from up Vermilion way. Neighbor said we had 7" last Wed/Thurs that's enough to make it messy. Was wonderin :scratch: what was up with you as the latest post I could find was early September. Haven't seen much activity over at Geiger's yet & their camera looks like they didn't get near that much snow. Somebody posted a pic of 7" of ice in front of their place on the west shore of the main lake the other day on Sand.

I know Rapids had about an inch and Geigers doesn't look like a whole lot plus the lake looked like it all blew off. See what happens with the next to fronts coming in this week.

No storm warning in TWC's forecast for up there for Tuesday/Wednesday that I could see. Snow showers for Wednesday AM though plus Friday & Saturday both said 1-3" .

Checked out TE's camera early, 'bout sunrise( 7 ish) & swore I seen some lights out on the lake to the east of them. Could've easily been out front of the PA on 35 & it was headlights so I'm thinkin it was a couple 4 wheelers. Can't see 'em out there now but lookin at the snow on their deck now it looks like they got plenty. I've been in contact with our neighbor up there recently & they said the Wed/Thurs of the week before Thanksgiving we had 7" over there. Geiger's didn't look like they got anywhere near that much then, looks to me like they have more today than they had before turkey day. :doah: :sad: :thumbs: :pouty:

Really sucks. Last year I paid $600 in plowing and never fished until all the snow melted so I was hoping this year would be a year to make up for that. Doesn't look like that so far.       :angry:

I don't even think we got plowed out last year. it was great the second weekend of December last year. planned to go new years but that got shut down, I did go up before that new years blizzard just to get all my stuff back home. I did go check the lake after it mostly melted but broke thru the top layer into 6 inches of water....no thanks.

my nephew went up super bowl weekend and he spent 4 hours just to get out on the lake to fish.....idiot. and of course if someone didn't pay to get it plowed out, he wasn't. :confused: :confused:

That's the one Glenn. A lot of dock and they have a camera facing the lake so I can check both sides between then and Geigers. Doesn't mean much but at least I can see if anybody is fishing out from them.

HEY MERC and GUNNER...………...what are your informants telling you guys about lake conditions up there????

in looking at them lake cams I don't really see that much snow on the lake or ground. :scratch: :scratch: I talked to my kid tonight, he seems to think my mom went back to Wisconsin to my stepdads place and didn't go up north because of all the snow???????? but doesn't know for sure. of course she didn't tell me nothing?????????? :doah: :scratch:

and other reports are scattered and sketchy at best.

Glenn, I don't know a whole lot but I know Bow has 10" of ice with 6 to 8 inches of snow on the ice according to Bowstring Shores. Smaller lakes sound like some slush but don't know how much. I'm supposed to go up Monday but with the highs in the single digits not sure. Will find out tomorrow what my buddy wants to do. I will let you know if we go and what we find.
Title: Re: deer river/talmoon area
Post by: Gunner55 on December 13, 2019, 05:07:06 AM
If merc's info is right along with what Sundin says in the new fishing reports thread that the small lakes have more snow on them because the wind didn't blow it off. More snow = more slush, at least right now. Of the people we know up there now hardly any ice fish, but if I was a gamblin man I'd say if Bow has 6-8 " of snow your little lake has at least 2", to maybe 4" more. Maybe Kettle will post about what he finds this weekend over on FM, it seems like he fishes mostly the smaller lakes in our area.

thanks guys!!!!!!  all i can say based on what i seen the 3rd weekend of deer hunting there was maybe 6 inches, but no more then that, of snow on land and the lake didnt have any snow on it. what happened after that....well its mixed reports.

It looks like somebody :scratch: had ideas of maybe walkin out at Geiger's but thought better of it after only getting 5-10' out there. :bonk: Some different lookin tracks on the other cam too, 2 of 'em look like they might go right through the Narrows. :bonk: That's  :crazy: as nobody usually ever goes through there, way too much current. Not sure where they get on but all the traffic over there always comes from the west side on that 1.

Usually just the West 1 for me as that usually shows the most activitly. I'll check the East cam now & then as there will be a few along that north shoreline sometimes. Don't look at any of the others much at all.

Haven't been able to get the east cam & bobbers to work lately :scratch:, might just be the internet hook up we have down here. Austin & at the lake are both higher speed so got to check that out. I did see somebody set up, yday PM, to the west of where the shack was the other day though. Couldn't tell what type of shelter they had. Pretty gray/slushie lookin the last couple days on that side closer to the narrows & the warmer temps comin won't help.

I see my post from yesterday vanished so I'll tell you again that I seen(east cam) somebody thinkin about walking around that fishing platform they have at The Narrows on Saturday morning. He started on the east side & got 'bout 1/2 way around before changin his mind. He thought about givin the other side a shot too until he looked underneath it before callin it off. There was a couple shacks out on the bobber's outdoor cam west of the narrows that day too. They looked to be quite a bit west of where that closest 1 had set up earlier to me.

Yeah, I have to believe your right. :bonk: OUCH!! That hurt. ;) :rotflmao: :rotflmao: Anywhere near those amounts of snow will put the kabosh on most, if not all, the travel on the area lakes. :pouty: Especially the way the ice has looked to be deteriorating over at WN this week. Wasn't surprised at all to see your post about the wheeler & trailer down by you goin through.  :tut: A well known trouble spot, all the warm weather & they still gotta test it. :doofus: :banghead: No  :fish2: worth that IMO. :crazy:

Ok, fishwidow/fishwidow1 here. 100% male. The username came from my wife responding to a for sale item on HSO.  I responded to an ad later and just kept the name since I am not a frequent poster. The guy that I responded to was also confused, since I told him I would buy his portable, but when he called and I answered, he was obviously expecting a woman. He asked to speak to fishwidow and I said I am fishwidow, he paused and said “Oh”. I told him I was headed out of town and would pick up the house on Monday, he said, “That’s ok. I’ll sell it to someone else.”  I don’t have much luck trying to buy stuff for sale on outdoor websites.

Anyway, Glen, I’m not northwest of Grand Rapids, I’m a few miles east of 38. A couple inches of snow today,  but it’s colder and the snow today is dry and lighter.

Yeah FW, we're up there at least 8-9 months a year now. Grandparents bought a place a over by Inger & not far from Lakewood Lodge back in the fall of '63. Glenn is only 8-10 miles NE of us up by Spring Lake. We usually make 1 trip a week to GR for supplies, nice town. Been going back up just after New Years the last few years but probably won't be this year.

I go to Laughlin too much but it breaks up the winters. I like it, really laid back as most of the people down there are older snow birds. Glenn, I have him keep my yard open all winter. I can't find anyone that wants to do it when the snow gets too deep. To hard on there equipment is the reason. It's really hard to find someone to plow so I just keep him and pay and pay. Usually it's not a problem as I go up a lot but the last two winters now sucks.     :sad:

 :bonk: Can't really :doofus:, I just seen some lights a little north & quite a bit east of their(TE's) landing. I've seen some activty in that area before quite often & I'm just guessing that it's the area straight out from the other access that gets a lot of action this time of year. There's been a few houses over there in the past & usually a bunch of porties, 'specially weekends.

we did really good one year straight out from the 35 access. we lined up a blue greenish boat house and found 26 ft of water and got some dandy crappies......and walleyes........... but had to put them back as that was after season closed. :pouty: :pouty:

i had my camera down...........seen a monster pike!!!!!!!!!!!

i talked to my coworker from up there today. he said he was up on long lake.....the one up north of talmoon on 6. he found 4 inches of good ice 8 inches of frozen slush ice, and after the hole was cut water/slush on top. this was looking at a spear hole. he didnt say how he did though.

he thought maybe snowmobile travel might be ok but not ATV!!!!!!!!!

It doesn't look like there's been any activity out of Geiger's recently but there appeared to be at least a couple sets of lights out there last night & again this AM early, looked to be out in front of the Co Rd 35 access again to me.

Well made it to the Northland. Went to check out the cabin. Holy moly Rocky they got snowbanks  drove in about half way where the road splits and there's a 7 ft snowbank someone piled snow right in the road and only way to get to the cabin. :angry2: :angry2: I'll be looking into this. :confused: :angry2: in rapids now. Started snowing about 8 and still coming down. Should be a fun drive home. :crazy: :crazy: :pouty:

Got closer to the cabin and noticed a lot of deer activity along the edges of the woods but nothing was crossing the road. Pretty good size banks for them to try and navigate.

Well off to do some union thuggery. :nerd: :nerd:

looks like a whiteout up there...…... :doah: I hate living vicariously up in the northland by these webcams..... :confused: :censored: and seeing our driveway this past Wednesday doesn't help matters.

one of our field members lives over by Naswhauk, he has frozen water issues. said when he was back there around new years he figured the had about 3 ft of snow by then. he's working down in iowa somewhere on a damn and said he wont be back up there till spring with the way things are.

and you can tell by all the reports there aren't many venturing out on the lakes up there...……..

Geigers said if they get any more snow they are shutting down the resort for the winter and no roads  will be plowed. Bowstring Shores has a small road with three rental houses out in front of there resort. They said the slush is firming up and snowmobiles can go any where on the lake but there will be no truck traffic this winter. Not real good news as far as getting out up there.    :sad:

well now i'm really pissed. :angry2: :angry2: just talked to my mom. I sent here the 2 pictures I took of the snowbanks up north. she is the only family member I sent them to. she apparenlty sent them to my brother, she told me he called Itasca county  sheriffs dept whining about it.

I did NOT want to get any enforcement agency involved as I wanted to talk to the 2 possible individuals personally, man to man, respectfully asking him nicely to not do that anymore.

I get real tired of him sticking his nose in stuff that doesn't concern him. :angry2: :angry2: its not like he's going up there anytime soon, living down by wausau wi. id like to   training-087 training-087 in the face. and of course #1 can do nothing wrong with mom. I told her I didn't want to go this route, but you can imagine how that went.  gawd i'm pissed. :mad1: :mad1: :angry2: :angry2:

 Just wouldn't, because no good is probably going to come of it. Probably just worry about it until we got it fixed anyway or over react & make things worse. That's how our place was set up too until Dad passed then our names went on the title. When we re-built the bank said her name had to come off it & even then she was still paying the North Itasca Electric bill when she passed away.

Because you already probably know the outcome. Just like me trying to deal with my POS step-brother when Mom and her husband ended up going to separate nursing homes.....and then he has me get a hold of him thru my attorney ("I couldn't find yer number") right before Christmas to tell me Mom's husband (his Dad) died....
a WEEK BEFORE.  THAT was REAL fun telling my Mom.

Heard from a relative this week who lives down here & he usually goes up to Nodaks the last weekend of walleye season. He wanted to know if I knew of any places they could go as Nodaks has been closed all winter. He had looked at LOW but said they were almost double what they usually paid.

Yes, Big Ball Club.  I have not been by GDP or the damn.   Based on how much water is on the river going under the high way I would say there is some serious current coming out of the lake.   Or are you looking for above the dam ?

No, I haven't heard anything to that effect glenn. Wouldn't be totally shocked to hear there's somethin to it though as it not real deep.

so I left for rapids this morning early enough the plan on going to check out the cabin. on my way up I noticed only 1 fishhouse on serpant lake in Crosby. there where about 1o out on rabbit, but not as many as the last time through. between outing and remer I seen 10 deer out in a swamp wondering around. I seen some in the same swamp last time up, but not sure why there in there, I cant imagine food, but they didn't seem to be in deep snow.

well got to the cabin road and I expected to see the same crap. but WOOZER was I surprised. that big bank was gone. I drove the car all the way into the cabin. someone did one bang up job plowing out all the way to the cabin, they also plowed down to the neighbors place. but holy Hannah are there snowbanks..

now the odd part, I don't know if I should care or be pissed. someone was at the cabin after he plowed out. so I was with my mom and brother all day yesterday. I intentionally brought the cabin up a few times and was basically ignored. expect my stepdad asked if I was going over there.  I said maybe??? and left it.

so how do I know someone was there????? glad you asked!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: there was a path shoveled to the outhouse, the deck to the cabin door was shoveled off and 2 shovels where stuck in the snow. when i left there was 1 on the deck. the curtains in the cabin where left open, orders are to shut them. a path was shoveled to the outhouse, the bank was shoveled to get a 4 wheeler outta the shed and they shoveled a path to get to the lake...…and wheeler tracks out on the lake.

so i went over and talked to the new guy on the block. nice kid. found out he had temporarily piled that snow there and after he had time plowed us out. we had a great talk, said he hasnt been on the lake all winter because of the conditions. we  :bs: more. he belongs to the 49ers union and is around all winter but gone most of the summer. told me if i needed anything to let him know. so we will be trading contact info soon!!!!!!!

oh yea he said he hasn't seen any activity on the lake all year.

I did see one deer going back to deer river...……..there's way enough snow up there that there sticking to paths they've made.

went I went through talmoon I think it was even to early for Merc to be at hayslips too!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

last night when I went up to see Mom, I brought up the cabin and the road being plowed out. I got the well yea look. not sure what to think, my brother said yea he called our guy Steve and had it plowed out. my nephew went up super bowl weekend.

the kid I talked to gave me the impression he plowed us out, but apparently that wasn't the case as our plow guy said that big azz bank was still there and as hard as a rock.  took 6 hours to clean out the road. both those guys apparently have so issues between the 2, so I don't know whatto think of the new guy!!!!! :doah:

anyway i as told they didnt get far out on the cabin lake because of all the water on the ice. tried the little lake behind us, got 3 crappies then nothing. and they tried taking the wheeler over there and had one hellofa time getting it back!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

knowing that i may try and get up there later in march to check out the lake situation!!!!

Only 1 on the bay that fishes much this time of year & he don't post much. He usually puts his skidhouse up around the NE corner of the big island. I wouldn't bet much that he even got it on the lake this season. :crazy: :pouty: There's 3-4 more out on the main lake that will put their shacks out in front of their place too & they usually post quite a bit more but nothin from them either.  :confused: So I'm bettin conditions are still not good or that they've already given up for this year. :sad:

Lake conditions were pretty good up there. We had my snowmobiles but there were some 4-wheelers getting around on Bow. No slush on any of the lakes we were on. Got some nice crappies but we couldn't find the perch. Should have went a little shallower. Never tried for sunnies but we will next trip.

I was on a couple lakes in that area and they are in pretty good shape.  We only found a couple of slush pockets on the sleds.  Nothing serious.

Yeah it does, it wasn't like that the last time I peeked at it which might've been Saturday. :scratch: Can only think of a couple reasons they'd do that & 1 is that they're leavin for a few days as I know some in their business like to do right about this time or the conditions have deteriorated so much they want to discourage anyone from goin out their access. :confused: Eyeguy might know what's up.
