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 scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
