Wood Tick Trail

8 posts in this topic

There is a road called the wood tick trail a few miles north of Hackensack of 371. this summer I took a drive along it a noticed a few little lakes along it. Has anyone ever fished any of these?

yes I have, there is lots of small lakes tucked back in there and I have had some great fishing at times, some are a little hard to get a boat in though, get a map of that area and you will also find lakes further back in some of the logging roads that are also fun lakes to fish.

i live down in the cities and have found that trail an some fish back there. but ive never fished it in the winter. mainly because i didnt know if the dirt roads for miles get plowed back there. can you drive back there in the winter without getting stuck confused.gifgrin.gif

I don't believe it gets plowed...it is used as a snowmobile trail through the winter (at least it used to be when I was young, so that may have changed). Very Pretty back in there in the winter..

It gets plowed from county road 5 down to moccasin lake then it stops and is used as a snowmobil trail, the sleds keep these trails packed pretty good and you can usaully drive down them with a 4 x 4 truck

IXL, I was back on a lake last weekend. Some of them have been killed off a few years back while others are definitely worth fishing. I wouldn't recommend going on any lake in the winter without knowing the lake and ice conditions. I'm not trying to persuade you in not fishing, but in some cases there are springs you need to stay clear of! I would be more than happy to show you some decent spots when you are up in the area. Also, travel on the woodtick isn't difficult at all right now. I pulled my trailer with my 4 wheeler on it last weekend and was able to go where ever I wanted. JIMBO, which lakes do you fish off the Tick?

We drove from 371 to Moccasin yesterday. However, the access is not plowed and I doubt if a wheeler will get through. Snowmobiles have been there. We did not go down to the lake. However, it looked like it had some darker areas which to me would mean slush. So, I have no ice report or fishing report. 3 guys were on Stocking and had caught only one crappie.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
