16 Mile...or any hot reef off Babler's Road

9 posts in this topic

I have my house up there on shore. I was wondering if a guy still can get off the main road with a wheel house?? Would anybody be available to plow a road to where I would want to go?? I would like to get away from everybody else, but if I get a road plowed I bet the weekend traffic would lock on me.... Any info would be great.. Thanks

I think if you can get off the main road you can move around pretty good but plowing a road will deffinately turn you into a magnet for other houses. two weeks ago I ran around long point where ever I wanted to go an I dont think there was any more snow addition up there. Even if you just take off on your own on one of the reefs your tracks will attract others also. Not much you can do about it. Boar

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
