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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
