Snow conditions, heading up 8-9-10

8 posts in this topic

Deciding wheeler vs. sleds. How much snow is on the ice? I am not sure how much snow will make the wheeler a big pain but its easier that bring 6 sleds when you can just hoo kthe trailer to the bacl of the wheeler. I know getting over some roads might be tough but would be nice to be able to pile on a trailer.

We were just up this weekend and I would say sleds, but depending on how far you're going a wheeler might work. It's all crusted snow, no loose snow so cooling and slide lube may be a problem for your sleds if you're gonna run far. There are some drifts too that are hard so you may have trouble with a wheeler. Its a toss up at best.

I was out from Rogers this weekend with a wheeler and we had no problem getting to spots as far as 2 miles away on wheelers. We didn't get stuck at all, like previously stated watch for the drifts. The only problem we had was our rope tied to the fishhouse kept breaking. This of course will all change if they get snow this week.

Hey Big Jeff,

Do you fish with a dude named Officer Mike? The guy going around impersonating a cop, but is really a male nurse? If so this is Joe D's brother.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
