Wheelers on the ice

3 posts in this topic

just wondering if I am going to be able to get my wheeler out on PB? Hows the slush conditions?

It all depends on the weather... The wind yesterday helped a lot BUT there is still dangerous ice in certain areas... The snow blew off some of the slush covered areas, and allowed that slush to freeze... If you access PB from the south end, ny guess is you will not be able to get your house out there... The wind yesterday was NW and blowing into that shoreline, most likely causing some big drifts... I should be out there this weekend and could try to swing by there for you...

Hope this helps,

Beef

I was over that direction with the wheeler on Sat. for a few hours. We didn't have any trouble getting around. There were some minor drifts that were easily crushed as well as some slushy areas, but in 4x4 they were not even worth a blink.

Despite our "easy" riding, be careful out there! You never know when there's a soft spot below!

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
