Who will plow to the flats??

22 posts in this topic

As i sit here in Finlayson watching the snow pile up by the feet i wonder if i will see another batch of jumbo perch? I love the late bite on the mud but with this dump will any resort expend the energy and time to plow to the flats? Liberty used to be really on it but i don't know about this year any updates this week would be awsome I'd pay 20$ for another trip out for Jumbos....

I would think that if you could pull a house or if it was nice out, you could get by with a quad or a sled to get out there. Just my thought, that's what I would do. Then you could get to wherever you want. I would think that with all the snow a sled would probably be a bit better than a quad though. Just for sake of possibly getting stuck in a two foot drift three miles from shore! smirk.gif

hunters point resort said that he is going to have four trucks plowing and will have roads open for the weekend.

i had a bunch of minneapolis firemen up monday and tuesday, and george plowed over 20 miles of road over the 2 days. you could get around real good with a 2 wheel drive van. i am sure that he will at least open up what he plowed monday and tuesday.................tom fellegy

Tom is correct.

Just got off the phone with George at Nitti's Hunters Point and he is going to be plowing roads out to 3 mile only at this time.

The winds are pretty steady and the snow is drifting pretty bad. We have around 18 inches of snow and its very light and drifting everywhere. George told me that until the winds die down he will not be plowing roads until the winds die down.

There is around 30 plus inches of new snow on the lake and drifting all over. Bring your snowmobile if you want to get around. Four Wheelers will not cut it off the roads! We are not plowing any roads and I spoke with Kevin this morning and Mac's is not plowing any roads either. I called Fishers Resort this morning and their road is closed also.

I haven't heard of any fishing reports as of today. Everyone has been crambling just to get the fish houses off the lake.

Bring your snowmobiles up and enjoy some trail riding and a little perch fishing. All the trails are freshly groomed and look like a ton of fun! I know thats what I ma going to do this weekend.

Fish On!!!

Was out yesterday from hunters...he has plowed paths to several area's. The only problem I would see in a car is trying to find somewhere to pull off the roads. The roads are plowed 1 1/2 lanes...not the typical highways. You would have to find a safe spot to pull over on the snow so other vehicles could get around you. I would just bring a shovel...

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
