Travel on area lakes??

5 posts in this topic

I haven't been out in over a week, how are the lakes? I drive by and see the drifting, but I also see cars and trucks. I have a Suburban and figure that the 4-wheel drive and little common sense should make it OK to get out on the chain and/or Osakis.

Has anyone seen any areas that would be sled travel only?

Thanks,

Steve

F-N-F, you should be fine with the burban, like you said as long as you use common sense. There are some hard drifts out there that could hang you up if a person trys to plow a good sized drift. Good luck out there, the bigger sunnies and a few crappies are starting to show themeselves again.

Was out on Miltona last night (Sunday) & could go pretty much wherever I wanted, just had to drive around a few drifts. Got stuck once, slowed down to look at the gps & then realized I was right in the edge of a big drift. Took quite a bit of shoveling & pushing to get it moving again. Very slippery snow. I don't have the greatest tires in the world either.

So...How was the fishing?

We caught 4-5 walleyes all 9-11", so I'd say poor. Only the second time out there this year. I just started ice fishing the lake for walleyes last year & only have found about 2 semi productive spots. I've fished it a total of 7-8 times in the last two winters.

The ice is about 3' thick I'd say now. I already had my extension on, so I don't know if I would have had to have it, but I'd say not quite.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
