Snow Depth

5 posts in this topic

We are coming up this weekend for the first time. Just wondering how much snow is up there, and do you think snomobiles or wheelers would be better? \:\)

Wheelers are a nightmare currently. Deeper soft snow under a couple of inches of SUPER HARD crust. Just about the time you think its smooth sailing a tire breaks through and its worse then getting hung up on a log.

Sleds are a good choice but one heck of a rough ride this year.

Today I was able to drive around a 1 ton superduty with the plow lifted as long as I payed attention to the big drifts. I see several guys taking their time and going off road pulling wheelhouses without to much trouble as long as you carefully pick your route. After that nasty wind we have some drifts are bottomless right along side bare ice. Pick your route carefully and you will be fine. Make your buddy walk in front and pick the route. ;\)

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
