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

I would bet on a sled working just great. Unless you feel like digging a truck out alot. grin.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 just got off the phone with Hunter's and they said you can park on the roads w/o blocking them. Can anyone verify this? Otherwise I'm going out of Sunset Bay. Thanks
