Snowmobile travel

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.

      The stability is unreal!   I can stand in it if i want .... it is 9 feet long by 4 feet wide.   zooms really nice as is good for being stealth in the shallows

      I know the lakes are open and that means some the first open water fishing spots are producing. Any one out there catching em yet? I will be riggin the ultra light up today so I can stop on my way home from work.
