Road conditions

Recommended Posts

fishgutz

Coming up this weekend and wonder about road conditions on the ice and if there's a plowed road out to bostick bay (for pike fishing) I know the old owners used to plow a road out there but I don't think the new owners do, can you guys give your insight? Also if we do need to rent a 4 wheeler or snowmobile, can you let me know where we can rent from up there??

Thanks guys....

I am not sure where bostick bay is, but the road Adrians has plowed and maintained this year is one of the best ice roads I have ever seen. Nice and smooth, a few little bumps here and there from the ice shifting but nothing that you wouldn't be able to pass with a car. Your best bet is to give the resort you are going to a call and ask about the particular place you are looking to fish.

This is the time of the year when the roads start to deteriorate, especially with all the drunk yahoos running 50-70 mph out there trying to jump their trucks over all the bumps. We had one dude pass us when we were doing about 25, just flew by us and then hit the marked sled trail across the road and cleared it. Good way to kill that suspension.

Bostick bay is the bay out at Morris Point. Good to hear that the roads are in good condition though. Hoping the fishing is good we like to head up as late as possible, but the last couple trips we came up too late and couldn't get out on the lake.

Doop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

Hey Man! Making the voyage back up there huh!? We missed out on our trip because we weren't sure how Don was going to come out...thank God he's doing a little better.

We were booked over at Warroad though...we were going to go out of swift ditch area...you guys might want to run over there once and just try it. I can get you pointed in the right direction if you need it. How is your son doing? I can't wait to see that little guy!

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
