Gabbro

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever fished gabbro in the winter? Was wondering if it's worth the effort to trek in der.

I've never been in there for walleyes, but it is a popular crappie lake late in the winter. smile.gif

I have fished Gabbro a few times in the winter. I think with the amount of snow that we have this winter, it may be very difficult to get in there. For one thing, I don't believe they plow the Spruce Road past the S. Kawishiwi River entry point. That leaves you one mile from the Gabbro entry point trucking your gear even further than normal. I am not sure if they are drilling for mineral exploration past there or not, so you may be able to get in all the way, but I just don't know. Next off, you have that bear of a portage to get your gear over unless you know the cross country shortcut, which, I don't know that one either. I would also be really careful going between Little Gabbro and Big Gabbro with the ice conditions what they are and the current though there. I am not saying it's impossible- because I have done it, but it isn't going to be easy either. Pack light, bring skiis. Be prepared to haul gear 2-3 miles to fish. Good Luck!

Last year we went in and tried Gabbro for walleyes. They quit plowing at the kawish entry point so we road snowmobile into the portage. We did not get anything and never went back.

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
