Anyone been out there? Just wondering if you can drive or you need to get the snowmobile.

Was out there Saturday and took the main road out to the houses on the north side, from there ventured off the path a good ways and it wasn't too bad. Sallie was about the same Sunday except for the drifts from all the wind. Definitely need 4 wheel drive though.

I think you would be ok on Melissa, especially of you were on the North or west side of the lake. I have to imagine the situation there is the same as on Sallie as well. I was out on Sallie today freezing my boots off. I took a spin around the entire lake on the sled and it looks like a 4wd truck could make it through.

There was a group of us out there on Friday. We had no problem getting out. We fished on the N. side. Definately need 4 wheel drive, but the snow wasnt too deep. Were gonna try to get that monster house off later this week. The perch

Man, there was a ton of pans, we mainly fished for pike. There was a group of us(7) from the pd that had a little derby, (2nd annual). The pans were small, so small they're hard to catch. we mainly threw sucker minnows on bare reds. I'm gonna go out and try for pike tomorrow, if it warms up 15-20 degrees. There were some crappie intermingled in with the suns but no real size to them either.

Oh yeah, biggest fish caught was a 5 lb snot rocket on a tip up with a 1/2 pound sucker minnow. the Perch

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
