Forest Road Accessibility In Winter

5 posts in this topic

It's a little early yet...I know in the grand marais area alot of the forest roads don't get plowed and are only accessible by snowmobile or dog sled. I don't have either. I'm wondering if the forest road to greenwood lake gets plowed? Been wanting to ice fish that lake for years. Anyone ever give it a try?

It is plowed to Greenwood. There are a few year around residents over there.

Ever fished it in winter? Would be targeting lakers obviously, but possibly cisco's too. Any weak spots in the ice anywhere?

I haven't been on the hardwater for years. There's a couple of guys at Buck's that know a lot about Greenwood.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      When I fished Trout Lake a lot live Light Northers Suckers under a tip-up would out catch Ciscos every day of the week!

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
