I would have to say i'm a little let down with your recent posts highway2allstar. Can't you ask these questions in a more ridiculous fashion like we are used to?

Yep, if you stay away from shore where the snow is a bit deeper. You can actually drive down the public landing off North Arm Road (you get to it up the Echo Trail), if and only if they've plowed it out. Some years it's plowed but others it's not, and I haven't been up there to look this winter.

If you want to drive across the lake to the North Arm you'll have a shorter drive off Van Vac than from Bside Lodge.

Highway2Allstar,

You can drive from Burntside Lodge to the North Arm, BUT when going through the narrows, stay to the left (west) side of the island with the cabin and the next island north, which is all rock.

DO NOT DRIVE ON THE EAST (RIGHT SIDE) OF THESE ISLANDS!!!!!

You will go through the ice, cause it's always bad in that spot.

You can never get the Slovenian (Bohunk) out of you, as unfortunate a situation as that is. \:\(

Try to hold your head high, even though you know deep down that an Amoeba is a higher form of life.

Fortunately, you have some good Finnish blood to help bail you out! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Oh, G.O, I have a certain degree of vertical challenge myself, and ya know I mean it in the best possible way when I say you aren't much taller than an amoeba yourself. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Imagine, a Range Finn ripping on a Range Slovenian. Some things never change. Either of you ethnics got any useful information about fishing to share? grin.gifgrin.gif

Yeah, use anyone of Irish descent as shark bait grin.gif

The Bohunk comment was on the, shall we put it nicely, "thinking process" of the individual, not stature. \:D

Of course, that would put you in the equation also! grin.gifgrin.gif

Well, it would put me in the equation partly because I'm only 5-8 and partly because I'm part Bohunk myself. grin.gifgrin.gif

Steve,

I'd try to downplay that part Bohunk thing, if you catch my drift! ;\)

Sigh.

Anyway, back to the original topic, there's been some drifting on Burntside but the drifts out in the open are scattered, and I had no trouble driving around them today. Never went through more than six inches of snow.

Closing at 5 tomorrow night.

Give me a call if you're on the road, though I'm sure that cel phone service isn't too good coming up through Isabella on Hwy 1.

If you're getting close to Ely about 5, I can hang around the shop.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!  
    • leech~~
      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
