Does anyone have any info on the roads at Bablers or Arnesons going out to Gull Rock?

Going up there on Thursday to open up the cabin for the weekend for some friends of ours and try to get out and do some fishing Thurs.. If not FRIDAY for sure. (we'll be in an Otter II portable (the old purple beast)set up by a green & white permanent). Stop and say HI if you see us..

Scroll down to the regional forum section and check out the Lake of the Woods forum, there's lots of great info there.

I had looked prior to posting this hoping I could get some info

on these two accesses from this last weekend. We normally use Bablers, but didn't see anything out there for that one. \:\)

I fished 16 Mile Sat. Road past Gull was fine but there was some new snow that will cause some issues when it blows next. Fishing was slow!!!!

Just got back from up there. Road from Babler's was good past gull rock out to 16 mile. We even got off the roads around gull rock. Got stuck a few times, but if you kept moving and only stopped on good hardpack you were ok. A fishhouse close to us was stuck so a plow truck plowed a path right by us to the house. That was nice becuase we hopped on the path and followed it back to the main drag. PS fishing was good in about 26ft.

Appreciate the input guys.. Will let you know how we did when we get back.... Hopefully have some good luck. If you're up there, swing by and say hi. We'll be in the portable listed above. Will probably be north of Gull Rock on Friday. We're having a small derby going on Saturday. Not sure if it's by Gull or at Zipple yet. Guess we don't find out until Thurs night

about the 'for sure' location. (some friends are putting it on who have a cabin by Arnesons)

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
