driving to 5 mile

10 posts in this topic

Anyone driving a half ton and wheel house to 5 mile, looking to drag the wheelhouse out there friday. How is the snow? Is anyone going to plow a road from Warroad again this year? I'd be happy to chip in for that service. I would consider 12 mile if there was a road from rocky point.

Yep - there's a truck path that parallels Heath's bomber trail out there. 4WD is recommended. Nothing is plowed as of last night.

Springsteel crew finished their plow track to the S-tip late last week Chris. 5mile is pretty much straight S of the S-tip around about 4 miles. It sits nearly smack dab in the middle of Muskeg bay 5 miles out from Warroad.

Yes,my mistake Elm point,then I'm assuming your reference to south tip is the same as buffalo point?That is where the nice sand bar is dividing the canadian/us boarder right?That guy with the red&white permanent (Pilot I think?)sets his out there often.(A freind of Jake's)c63

Ya man you may just wanna break out the BIG beans and get yourself a map eh!!

Hmmm, how to explain? There is Buffalo point and the south tip of Buffalo point. These are both mainland Manitoba, Buffalo to the N and South Buffalo to the south {duh!}. The waters just out from, or south of the South tip are US waters waters of Muskeg Bay. The border runs east out into the lake from there for a couple of miles as well and there is a sandbar nearshore there which you may be reffering to. "Whiskey Flats" sits out here to the east along the border as well and you may be thinking of that?

If I was more puter savvy I'd send you something mapwise off my LM software but that would be a hairpuller!!

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
