Hats off to the ice road builders!

3 posts in this topic

We showed up at Zipple last Friday morning 6:45 and the ice

road crew (Nick included) was just coming back in from

repairing cracks and getting ready for the day. There was

a guy or two at at least one bridge to guide the trucks

across......all day and into the dark of night! The same

goes on at Adrians Road. Morris Point and at Long Point

and Rocky Point where the ice can really be trouble.

These people work extreeeeemly hard all winter so we can

have fun. Ice road access at 8 bucks is the best money

I ever spent. Thank the crews as you drive safely by.

They sure do a great job up there Curt. One thing though that really puts my shorts in a bunch are the people who think that blowing by you at 40 mph is the way to drive on these roads. Man they must think that the beer is being rationed at the lodges. If they could only see the affect of that type driving under the ice and the potential for a blowout they might sit back relax and take a chill pill. Bill

I must echo both Curt's and Bills remarks. I was up on Adrians road on Friday and the amount of work those folks do is outstanding. When we were leaving the ice we had a group of about 12 vehicles leaving the ice and some one decided we were going to slow.

I can't say enough about the folks who make it easier for us "southerners" who venture up that way and have a wonderful weekend.

      you'll need your own usb cord....but if you have a recent digital camera or something that same cord will fit.  its fairly easy to do.

      Ya we caught a ton of 12-13" fish this year

      I was catching a lot of 10" to 12" walleyes early in the season. I think that they moved deeper later and I did not catch to many of them after that. I did get a few of this springs hatch, (6" to 8" ) fish this fall also. Hopefully the DNR test netting this fall will reveal a good forecast! Cliff

      Went out for a couple hours Tuesday and put a few in the boat to end my season. Not a real hot bite but can't complain about two 15"ers for the pan. Thanks to everyone who shares info here. We've had the cabin for 6 years now and I'm starting to really figure things out with the help I find here. I'm nowhere near as good as I want to be but I always catch fish now, that wasn't always the case.  What a class of eater fish there is right now! Next year when they're all 16-17" will be great too, but it looks like we are going to have some lean years after that as far as eaters go. Anyone else see any signs of hope for a class after the current one? I don't remember catching anything under 14 all year
