Snow on Ice?

12 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!

Hey Tahoe, seems your asking for lakes around brainerd?  I am not certain on ice travel conditions on those lakes.  Although there should be plenty loose snow for sleds, but we have getting snow every day since sunday.

 

Leech last weekend you could get around quite easily with whatever mode of transportation you chose.

Thanks for the update ANYFISH2.  I plan on heading up to the east side of leech this weekend.  Do you think there is still a possibility of getting around with a truck after the snow fall this week?

I not real sure how much snow the leech area recieved.

If it is like what we got in the Randall/Lincoln area, 4-6 inches, travel should still be good. although i would bet there will be some deep drifts in areas to watch for.

Was on Leech this weekend out of Trappers landing. Pretty slushy now but you should be able to get around most anywhere. There are still some deeper drifts and ice heaves to watch out for but we made it out to Huddle's reef with no issues pulling a 22' tandem.

Are you able to get around on most lakes in the area with a truck?? Coming up for some lake hopping this weekend.

I would think so still, most of the slush is frozen up now. You might break through in some spots where the melted water hasn't frozen completely though. Just be cautious as always and give the lake a good survey before you head out.

I'd say yes. Temps have finally dropped. Things should be mostly froze by now I would think.

If your going out of Trappers watch out for the spot behind pipe island on the road... There's no cones or anything I put my chisel right through the center of it and felt bottom...Hug the right side...Couldn't believe there wasn't anything marking it.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
