Is there enough snow cover to get around on sleds? Or is driving the better option right now? I prefer to leave the truck on shore if I can. 

 

Thanks and and good luck!

Was wonder the same. I'm thinking of either hitting Mille Lacs or somewhere in Brainerd in the morning with the sled and porty?

I would say not enough snow for a snowmobile. At least not on the lakes in this area .( St Francis / Cambridge )The wind has blown the skiff of snow that we got into small piles, barely enough to put on the flaps of a portable. I have used my cleats the last couple of days.

Good Luck Fishing

I just checked the Mille Lacs cam site and it's don't look good. Guess I'll run up to Brainerd I know they had more snow up there a week or two ago.

Leech, at least west of brainerd, the is almost no snow on the lakes.  Plus we recieved zero snow this last week.  Not looking good in this neck of the woods for sleds.

I just got back from Mille Lacs. There's barely any snow, and the ice is so uneven and slippery that I could barely walk around and hole-hop, even with chains that usually provide plenty of grip. I almost went down a few times. The ice surface looks like ripples on the water.

I was going to run up there but the web cam shots didn't looks great for snow. Thanks for the update.

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
