Snow

Recommended Posts

Riders, We got the snow last night that we were expecting. I would guess from 3 to 4 inches fell and the riding for the weekend should be quite good. The groomer will be out and get things all shaped up today. Happy New Year Fishkab

How much total snow, do you think you have up there?

Has anybody been on the Chain of Lakes trail? is it really rough?

Mn Mike, I would say that we have at least 12 -15 inches of snow in the woods. It is snowing again right now with more forecast for the weekend. The trail conditions appear to be very good. The groomers are out and doing a good job. I am not sure if the Chain trail is open. That would depend on the ice conditions on those lakes. I will let you know as soon as I find out. There would be plenty of snow to ride the trail that is for sure. Fishkab

The chain of lakes trail is presently closed, as the park is quite short staff for another week. Usually they send a crew in there to remove blowdown, check the marsh areas and then open the trail. I'm sure the snow cover is adequate, and we expect another blast of good cold weather starting tomorrow as well as a good shot at some more snow late today and overnight.

Overall things are shaping up real well.


Good luck everyone. guts

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.

      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
