Predicting that is impossible, I would say that would be a little early to drive vehicles out. Atv travel should be good. But it all depends on the weather, if this cold trend keeps up, then you would most likely be driving truck. Check on this site before you leave or call the place your staying at, or Hillmans, for the best up to date info.

You should be able to drive out by mid-december... But that would be at the earliest.

Only mother nature knows for sure. The ice was looking pretty good and then snow showed up and made some slush. It sounds like that has frozen up which is good. Now we just need this big storm to slide by us as we keep making ice.It would not surprise me to see a vechicle out there before mid Dec. depending on how much snow we get

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.
