Driving out from Ballards

6 posts in this topic

Earlier in the year when I booked a March trip through Ballard's I had forgotten they provide Bomber transportation to and from their fish houses. I'd like to be on my own schedule and would therefore rather drive myself out to my assigned shack and stay out as long as I'd like.

Do any of you know whether this is a reasonable expectation, ie - is there a plowed road out to their shacks, accessible from the resort? I have 4WD but that's no guarantee and given the choice I'd rather be on a plowed road.

Whatcha think?

A call to Ballards would answer your question. It is not

an unreasonable question one way or another.

When we were up there I didn't see any plowed roads near their shacks. The ride is worth it. If you are on one of their packages they need to allow for enough time for the guides to cut your fish up when you get back. They put in some long days.

I can't say enough good things about the drivers/guides from Ballard's.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
