How Much Snow?

5 posts in this topic

How much snow around OT and are the trails going to be open for next weekend ? I'm sure all the 612 boys and girls are interested. We got a foot in St. Michael but the toys are up there. As always, thanks for the 411.

Around Battle Lake I measured 12-14" around the house.

Put on 100 miles on the sleds today...Battle Lake, Leaf Valley, Brandon, Dalton, Underwood and back. Once the groomers get out it will be great. Haven't ridden fresh stuff like this in 10 years.. cool.gif Average depth to the south was about 10".

The wonderful paved trail from Ashby to Dalton was thin in some open stretches from a groomer making an early run...might want to avoid that if the sun shines bright Tues and Wed as predicted. Just a guess as it happened last year...

At least a foot around the Detroit Lakes area. The Lakes-Vergas trails were in pretty good shape this morning, as there wasn't a lot of traffic on the trails yet. I put on about 80 miles this weekend riding in the woods. It was fun blasting through the powder, although in a few spots it was getting a little much already. I'm surprised I didn't get stuck in a few spots, and managed to ride of it. It was awesome riding this weekend but I'm sure the trails will be beat down pretty hard by next weekend unless the groomer gets out...

12" here in Duluth at noon on Sunday might be an inch more or so by midnight. Some busy winds make for some drifting but it is nice to have some snow on the ground. Need that moisture as we are bone dry.

Pavements melted clear in Perham but ditches/trails look great! 10" on the DATA trails in Douglas Cty. 12" or more in the yard ChuckN must have gone right by I'm between Leaf Valley, Millerville, Brandon. Crazy year only one snowmobiler has gone by our house on the DATA trail all year (Sunday morning a loner). Saw lot's of groups riding the ditches but not many on the trails except the paved rail-trail.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
