Ernie's Access Conditions

Recommended Posts

Coach1310

Hello all. Just wondering what the conditions are accessing the lake at Ernies. A friend of mine has a house near the access and I was hoping to be able to get to it with my car. Is this possible? Planning on fishing Friday. Any info on Ice conditions, travel conditions and the hot bite info would be great....one more thing....how is the morning walleye bite...as that is when I will be fishing. Thanks again. He hasn't been to it in a couple of weeks, so he doesn't have any current info for me \:\(

How about a smaller SUV like a Nissan Pathfinder, am I incorrect in assuming that one can pretty much drive anywhere by car/truck these days?

Thanks for the info guys. How has the bite been? It will be nice to get out either way, but a fish or two would be a big bonus!!!

I have seen full size trucks everywhere north of ernies with the exception of booming out bay( haven't been there) yet I was out tonight and there was only 11 inches of ice where I was fishing.

I have not had much luck with the morning bite but thats just me, not sure about others. The evening bite has been okay nothing over 20" but the quanity seems to be better then it was a week or two ago. They seemed to be biting somewhat aggresivly.

it has been pretty steady for us, every night I go, we end up with at least 4-6 walleyes caught (and released) and then we always miss a few:) We have been fishing 14-18 feet, but last night I had a tip-up in 39 ft and it caught 2 and missed one. My guess is they will bite pretty darn good with this warm front comin, jigging has been DEAD for me, all set lines and tip ups, with golden shinners

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
