Babblers road condition

10 posts in this topic

I'm planning on going out through Babblers this weekend and was hoping for a report on the road conditions and fishing?

Went out today & the road is good to Gull Rock. It is plowed to Gull Rock and staked to South Arnesens Reef. Not bad going with 4wd after Gull Rock, but you would be pushing and shoveling without. Snow isn't bad but the drifts are pretty stiff. Hopefully Dick will open up the road to Arnesens before we get any more snow.

later,

Hi Todd, can I ask how you did and how much ice there was. I'm heading out after work tomorrow and plan on being on the ice by early lite.

Have you seen any trucks pulling dropdown houses out of Bablers yet, or is it too soon?

I fished out of Babblers on 12/27 and 12/28. On 12/27 the road was plowed to Arnesons Reef and during the day they plowed it out to 16 mile reef. There are trucks with drop down houses all over out there and big perms being pulled out too.

Fishing was slow on 12/27, much better on 12/28.

The road out to 16 is about as smooth and crack free this year as any winter I remember.... For now anyhow!!

We had 20 inches of ice just south of Gull Rock on 12/30. Road was good all the way out. We were told "you shoulda been here yesterday" Newfolden group did very well on 12/29

We fished Sat. and Mon. and found it to be real streaky.  Had 20 nice keepers both days but it was slow overall.  Hard to get the fish off the bottom. Lots of trucks driving way too fast out there, I guess some will never learn.

later,

Fished 27 - 29th out of Bablers. Road is good, thanks Richard, but did find 12, 13 and 14 inches of ice when I got off the road. Everyone should keep in mind ice is never safe and does vary quite a bit. Be careful out there!

1/12 main road is good but beware of the side streets.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
