Trail Conditions

4 posts in this topic

Not sure where I should have posted this (also posted in snowmobile users forum), but am wondering what the trail conditions are like in the Detroit Lakes area? How is the snow holding up? Any in the forecast? Would like to ride over the holidays at my in-laws place. Appreciate any info. Thanks!

Trails are pretty nice in the Hawley-wood area.

I thought I posted this on both forums this morning but I guess it did not work for this one. Here is my report.

I put 247 miles on over the weekend. Trail south of DL (vergas trails) were not groomed as of last friday. Even if they groomed them after friday there is not enought snow to make it enjoyable.

North of DL. Rat lake, Yellow head in great shape but the lakes like Little Bemidji and elbow are horrible. Both have open water and alot of slush. there are signs posted with thin ice. Rock and rice lake seemed OK but still had some slush issues.

SouthWest of DL. Cormorant, Lake Park area seemed pretty good, but beaten due to a weekends worth of riders.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
