Fish lake driving

6 posts in this topic

I was thinking of trying fish lake out this weekend and was just wondering what the best access on the lake is and the condition of roads. Is the majority of this lake safe to drive on?(any danger spot)

Thanks for the help!

You will get some good advice some time today on this. I myself have not been up there yet this year. I was also thinking of going on Sunday. From what I have read on this forum. staying on the main trails will be OK. Driving off to small bays with deep snow could be a problem.

Well there is HI-banks resort which could give you good info about driving out and will have decent roads. Then there is the public access which does have some paths from snowmobile/4wheeler traffic and whatever anybody plowed with vehicles. Stay away from the dam if you go over to the public access.

There on trucks all over the ice on fish lake, you can acess the lake by the dam, just keep the left, you will see all the cars and trucks out there

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
