How Would...

7 posts in this topic

How would the travel be with a fourwheeler right now. I haven't been home for exactly four weeks and I was wondering if some of this warm weather we have, has made it alright for fourwheeler travel. As always I have the snowmobiles, but if I can sneak the wheeler out there I will do that too.

Thanks Guys!!!

Can't wait, only about 36 hours left!!!

Hey TL,

I was out around Stubbs, Olson... a couple days ago. In most areas the snow was packed down pretty hard. I was on a sled, but would think the atv travel would have been fine in that direction.

I have been using my ATV on the North Arm. So far so good. Some deeper drifts but I haven't got stuck in any yet.

John, what's the snow pack like around there. We're coming in March and last year there wasn't much snow to lube the tracks. I always bring wheels along in case I should need to switch out.

I don't think lack of snow will be an issue this year but when it starts to melt and refreeze it can make the snow lubrication an issue. Any report you have would be appreciated.

Thanks for the input guys, I will try to sneak the fourwheeler out.

Koochfishermen,

I will be back up tomorrow afternoon, probably around 3:00 or so. Parker and I are going to head down to Birchdale to try for some walleyes as soon as we get back into town. If you want to go we will probably leave IFalls around 3:30. I will give you a call later.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

    • Consider me in on a personal boycott of The Landing. Horrible horrible horrible customer service skills by the owners/management.

      1) it is much quieter on the water without the big blasters running up an down the lake from the Landing.

      2) Had a craving for wings while out fishing one night. Called ahead ordered up some wings- great taste- tiny crappy wings. Asked for a side of Blue Cheese and Celery - upcharge of like $3.00 for those. Washed it down with a bottle of Coors Light. $23.50

      Large group went in one night and they usually tear up the bar. Were told they can't play jukebox until after 10 pm it was 9:40 PM- ONLY GROUP IN THE BAR.  "They are trying to build up an Ambiance"

      Got their bar tab and they were done. Yearly group that dropped a lot of cash in the past. Never again until new ownership is on board.

      Unfortunately they have deep pockets.

      As soon as new ownership / management takes over the crowds will return.
