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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
