Is the snowmobile trail open?

Recommended Posts

lookin4fish

Just wondering if anyone knows if the snowmobile trail from wheelers point up in to canada is open/maintained? I hope to put on a few miles if the fishing gets slow. i suspect it will be bumpy with the winds that have gone through there making drifts. how often do they groom it? thanks for the info!

Yepper they were staked a couple of weeks ago. I think they're groomed weekly.

Is there still a big crack up by Knight Island? Or has it healed itself up?

Hey Fisky: Your the man in the know. I understand that you must have skis on the front and tracks on the back with a Snowmobile licence and trail trag to run the trail to Knight and Bridges, but is there another trail for those of us who have tracks on all four corners and no trail sticker. How do the resorts get their houses out there?? I'll be up in a week and want to go out to Knight and Bridges. What is the best way??? Kaz confused.gif

Yepper that is kind of a ?? or dilema is'nt it when it comes to those 4 tracked units. I'm not sure how stickler the CO's and Sherriffs are on ATV's such as yours on the designated trails either. Have you spoke with Charlie and crew in re. to this? When you have tracks on an ATV is it still registered as such or do you have to get OHV tags? I gots no answer for you buddy!!!

The resorts pull huts with Bombers and track vans. I was up there 2 maybe 3 times last year where we had departed from the east side and we went up via snowmobiles on a Bomber track, not the groomed snomobile track. I know it was a Bomber track because we passed a couple.

Man oh man was I surprised at the number of resort houses way out there last year compared to years past. I was a tad dissappointed to roll way up to a waypoint on a small pile and found 4 resort huts spread accross it. Bet there was close to 40 or 50 resort huts scattered on or around the piles out around there.

Being you did'nt make her up in December I bet you're just about ready eh!!!

Take care....Norm

I was up at Knight and Bridges yesterday and I only ran across 1 crack that was about 12" wide but I came from the Long Point area. That was about the only excitement I had all day! Fishing was not very good for us and we hopped around to 5 different locations. I can verify that the trail was marked through that area. The trail looked to be in excellent condition.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
