Hillman's road, It ain't pretty

12 posts in this topic

It is nothing to brag about, it's nothing we're proud off, in fact it is an embarrasment but Hillman's road is plowed out to Rocky Point. 7 1/2 miles. Buddy and I believe in straight roads but this one has more curves then a snake and a cul-de-sac. The first time in 30 years we have plowed a cul-de-sac into a road but we had no other options and with the warmer weather forecasted for next week it will work.

I am coming up on sunday with a wheel house pulled by a 4 wheel drive pickup. Will we be able to find a spot to set up out there?

It looks like the wind has deposited the snow in 3 major areas. The road banks, around houses and in the back of Foster's plow truck through his new broken window. grin.gif

Get around the road banks and it looks like fairly easy going.

Who the hell is complaining?? Lots of people are complaining. Like 'smartguy' mentioned, look back a few pages and you'll find the topics.

I've been saying all winter to let it snow and we'll see how quickly opinions change. Well... its here! Anyone thankful for a plowed road now? blush.gif

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
