SNOW!!

17 posts in this topic

They're forecasting a foot or so for up here tomorrow.

Looks like a great time to break the sled out and do some early season riding. We have miles of trails right around the resort. Grab you sled and come on up. It would be a great time to check out the resort and see what we have to offer.

You are correct the snow will be great for sledding but what do you think it will do to the ice. The winds are going to be east and southeast this weekend. Is the lake frozen over yet? With the winds from the east is there a chance that those icebergs in front of our place would blow out or are we going to have to deal with those heaves all winter again?

Paul, How's next weekend for you?

I'll bring up the Chevy for you, and hopefully the snow will be around or the ice will be ready smile.gif

Kevin,

That will work out great.

Snow is just starting to fall here, it's really coming down.

Glassguy,

The ice seems to be firmly entrenched. Guess we will just have to deal with the bergs and knock them down with the big plow smile.gif

We have 8-9 inches of snow up here on the east side.

I went out about 1/2 mile on the sled today and found 5 inches of ice.

Paul, I'm planning a trip next weekend to fish a fishable bay. Do you think I'll be walking or wheeling??? I have no problem walking, unless it's saft for the wheeler....

Good to hear! 5 inches of ice 1/2 mile out, I'll be up this weekend! Will be walking out though, I need the exercise anyways. The holidays are starting to gain on me, hopefully they are starting to gain on the walleyes and perch too. grin.gif

I was up last weekend and saw a portable out in the middle of Sunset Bay on Sat. He was a walker. As windy as it was the snow seemed to stick and not drift as much as I had expected. If you are going out with a sled or wheeler this weekend, especially on the east side of the lake, be very careful. There are some ice heaves and ice chucks that will be hard to see with the new snow.

After today's snow, how much are we looking at out on the lake? 12"+??? I would have to assume things are a bit slushy...

Any info would be greatly appreciated, as I would like to bring the wife up this weekend and do some fishing on the SW part of the lake...prepping her for the conditions before we get there might make things more enjoyable for everyone grin.gif

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
