Snow on the ground?

5 posts in this topic

We have lake property close to Battle Lake which we have not been up to this winter. Going to be making a trip up this weekend. Was wondering how much snow is on the ground? I want to if I need to bring my snowblower up so we can get up the driveway? I have truck so I can make it through some snow.

Also, how much snow is on the area lakes right now? Will I be good with a wheeler or do I need a snowmobile?

Thanks,

Not much, maybe 6-8" in the woods. We've had some warm spells that melted a lot of the snow and re-froze. If your driveway is prone to having any windblown snowdrifts you may need attention to that, otherwise a 4x4 truck should be able to go thru what is on the ground.

Definitely an ATV on the lakes. The snow is like concrete on the lakes and it's not snowmobile friendly. Not much snow on the lakes I've been on.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
