Snow on Ice?

2 posts in this topic

How much snow is on the ice now (Gull, NL, Round) (I realize it's snowing now too). Is ATV travel still decent if you're not doing long runs?

Thanks all!

Have been on North Long the past three days--371 Bay.  Off today, back tomorrow.  The snow has drifted so you have deep spots and spots with little snow.  Where it drifted around my house, as it is prone to do, I have about 18" on windward side.   On opposite side clear, on other two sides maybe 6.   Overall I would plan to be driving on about 6 with some decent drifts.  It is fluffy snow that just came down and easy to drive on.  I drive my 4 wheel drive Jeep Rubicon but drive it out and have not engaged 4wheel drive.  Friend stopped by yesterday in a Yukon and had zero problems.

Drive carefully and be aware of deeper drifts.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.
