View Full Version : The fishing was great, but the shovelling bit.

Got stuck in the slush. 24 inches of snow and 10 inches of water. Had to shovel a path 100 feet long to get to a packed/frozen old sled trail. Shovel was a 5 gallon pail!! I will feel that tomorrow. Snow shoe on the lakes from here on.
Between path clearing I took a break and caught this. 31 inches long and estimate around 10 lbs. Forgot to weigh it. Bagged to make 4 servings.

Nice fish. I've had sleds stuck in slush before. The only thing I know of that has more weight/density per unit of volume than lead....the slush that's just bogged down your sled.

Paced it off and it turns out I cleaned a strip 5 feet wide by 150 feet long of 10 inches of snow and 10 inches of slush. Slept very well that night. Sore for 2 days after though.

Some of my better days fishing salmon were in times of a torrential downpour. A raise in water will get fish moving.
