Where does the driving situtation stand?

Recommended Posts

Bobberboy

Where are we as far as driving full size vehicles? There is very little conversation on this matter. One road about 1 1/2 miles out. Is that it? I may have missed some postings. Please help out by providing latest updates. It's a four hour trip for us. We would love to participate. But given the amount of equipment we have I need to use my own transportation. All I have is a truck. Sorry about the Whine! Weather is frustrating!! frown.gif

I think those in the know are waiting to see what last night and tonight do to the ice thickness. They will post as soon as they know for sure.

I have fished Winnie several times in the past few weeks and have yet to see a truck go on it. There was about 14+ inches on the humps last weekend but still no vehicles. I have heard that they are letting extra water out of the dam and that between the rivers there is only 8 inches of ice. That is definately a concern for resort owners. I can't really see why nobody is driving on the south end...that should be safe. I have not been down there, but it is a long way from the rivers. Anyway, I would say a snowmobile is your best bet; especially after the 10 inches of snow we got last Saturday. Hope this helps.

Thanks Extreme. No Sled. We'll see how the ATV does. I hear that they are doing some plowing so that should help.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
