Any word yet on Bablers?

Recommended Posts

gator_slayer2

How's Bablers road? Has the fishing been good by Gull or others, like 12mi or 16mi? Heading up on Friday, and just curious on road conditions and if we can pull off the road-way to set a permenant house up? Otherwise, we're thinking Long Point by the Islands.....and if the fishing there is any good? I would hate to bug RICHARD AS HE IS PROBABLY VERY BUSY GETTING HIS ROAD INTO SHAPE AGAIN! A big thank-you to all the resorts for making our trips up to the big pond easy on our 4x4 pick-ups! Also a big thanks to the fisherman ppl for pulling those out that get stuck!!! Gator

I was up to gull rock this past wkd...friday nite - monday noon..4 guys and 35 eye/saugers..all around 14-16 inches..prob 20 small guys or pouts...caught 8 really nice perch as well..all 12-14 inch monsters..30 ft water north of the rock along the old trail..i would say to stay to the east and get as deep as possible..glow in the dark worked real well and lots of fish on the dead stick..smaller ones seemed to like the jig this time..

Good Luck

with a little yank. (ok--a big yank)

Got back Sunday, only fished Sat. and had real good luck on glow in the dark jigs with shiners! Lots of dinks, but very nice huge perch, eyes and sauger mixed in, the biggest was 19" eye...and rest were all 15"-17"ers! Guys that set up next to us didn't get anything,N. of the rock..we were there 2 weeks ago and did fairly well, but this time was even better! Thanks gottajig!!

King, you are gonna have fun getting your house off of shore, its banked up pretty good, Bablers road is getting tall on the sides and not much room to pass or meet anyone, and thats before Sundays and Tuesdays' wind storms!! Lots of people shoveling to get off the lake!! Someone else might have a better update before this weekend??? Didn't hear of anyone stealing or messin around with houses up there. It looked like the wind over last week might have wrecked one guys house (door open and windows), blew some tin off the roof?? Good Luck!! Gator

Gator- Did Richard still have the road out to 16 mile? We're headed up there on thursday night, already have the ranger loaded but if I don't have to bring it I'd rather not. I'm going to call up there first but I'm just curious. Thanks!

2k-Babler did have the road open to 16m, but now I'm not so sure with all the wind....hopefully, someone else chimes in and gives a report for over the week?!! It was snowing up there when we left a.m. Sunday with the wind kicking up also!!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
