atv's to the NW angle????

4 posts in this topic

I have been wanting to head to the NW angle for a long time and I finally have an ATV this year. Has anyone ever headed to the NW angle by ATV? If so, how long does it take, where did you leave the truck, etc.. I am looking to head there for a long weekend, and with not much snow, was wondering how atv's would do.. thanks for any info..

All I can tell you is be carefull on LOW with a wheeler because if you get one big blast of snow you will be much safer with a sled.Wheelers are fine with little or no snow but it can get iffy when it blows and drifts.jmo..c63 smile.gif

I am not sure if ATV's are "allowed" on the snowmobile/bomber trail. It would be something to check out first though. I don't know if it is Sportsman's or the DNR that groom that trail (if it is even groomed).

If there was a time to take an ATV to the angle it would be now. As mentioned above, conditions can change on LOW in a matter of minutes and an ATV may not be appropriate any more.

The marked trail is for tracked vehicles only(wheeled vehicles are subject to fines) and is maintained by our snowmobile club. If you have a GPS to make your own way or parallel the trail I wouldn't think you would have a problem if you checked all weather reports for the time in mind and be prepared to be stranded as things can change in a hurry out there.

I would put in at the Wheelers point access and time is based on speed. Figure 25 miles or so. Lake has a lot of slush drifts on the south end at least & appears to be rather glare ice to the north so don't plan on making great time.

Good Luck!!

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
