The snow isnt bad out there yet. There are some drifts that are a little tough, but if you navigate around the big ones you may be OK. Lots of truck traffic at Rky Pt today, and fishing was good for me this AM, slower after noon. Left the lake with some nice fish today, Buckshots and a jigging shad rap were the best- 29' near rocks was my depth.

later,

I can only speak of conditions on Bablers Rd but it is still not too bad with 4wd. It is a little tougher than a week ago and I bet it would be tough to pull a wheel house with a wheeler (even with chains). I think you are pretty safe almost anywhere with a truck right now if you watch for the obvious heaves and keep the speed down. I had a guy drive close enough to my hard house to get stuck in the associated snow drift, so beware of fish house drifts confused.gifwink.gif.

I have been going out from the Birch Beach area and close to shore doesn't seem to be an issue getting around. I do agree with Roger about there being more snow out farther on the lake and there is a few areas out there that have alot of slush also.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
