Bringing a portable out?

6 posts in this topic

In Feburary I'm heading out to LOW for the first time. We are heading out of Sportsmans Lodge (I think). We'll be going out of the bombadeers and I was wondering if they allow you to bring your portable with or do they not allow that. Thanks for any help.

I asked another resort the same question and they said "no" that they didnt have enough room. You would also have to take the auger which is even more space. I would think most resorts go under the same policy and would say no.

I wouldn't plan on bring it. If you go out of a resort where you can drive out on their roads like Zipple then yes. But if you are going in a track van there isn't room for it. Maybe they will be willing to do it for you but I would bet it will cost more.

If the track vehicle has a hitch you can(or should)be able to bring it.I know depending on the amount of snow on the ice they may not want the portables/augers 'cause people drill to close to the shacks and flood them.c63I enjoy bringing an auger at least so I can fish outside alittle of the time.The owner at the place we always go says"why do rent a house from me when I come out here your always fishing outside" grin.gif Just call ahead and see if it's ok,eh?

If you have a party of a few guys going, just have a couple guys go in the bomber and you can follow the bomber with your sled and portable. That way, all your equip is in the portable and you have your "home" house as well as the opportunity to fish outside a little bit if needed. I don't think most resorts would care if you did that but just check like the last post said.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
