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 thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
