crossing pine

7 posts in this topic

looking to pull a 14' fishouse over pine next week - is it fairly smooth, or should we pull out from another area?

as far as technique - in the past we start shallow (12 - 15') move deep midday (24' or so) then shallow again. is this the ticket to filling our pail? Thanks!!

I have the exact same question. I've gone over Pine before with portables but now I have a 14 foot shack. To add to your question, if you can't go over Pine do the roads that go around it hook back up with the roads that go over Pine? Also, how much snow is up there right now? I'm headed up on the 7th.

Hey boys! If you want any info about crossing pine I would call Adrians Resort (218-634-1985) you will get all your questions awnsered. They plow the roads and get you in the right derection. I was up a few weeks ago and I already fished in 20 ft. of water. Fishing was great!!

I wouldn't think that should be a problem. There are several house out there that size as of last weekend.

If crossing pine is a concern then why not check out Morris Point, just click on Resort Locator on the top of the page and look into using Morris Point, I believe they are plowing roads and have access. Then no 4 mile bay to drive across or pine to go over, just pull onto the ice at Morris and drive out and fish, basically the same area to fish with no island in the way.

fisky, any comments?

Well I can say I've seen much bigger fish houses than 14 foot, both wheeled and skid type pulled out across Pine. Road at Morris was opened to vehicle traffic earlier this week, 16 inches there Tuesday and with this minus 25 stuff going on the past few days it's growing every hour. A good 14 inches where I fished on Muskeg bay last nite.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
