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.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
