Babblers Road - Status?

13 posts in this topic

What's the status of his road?

Last I heard the breaker was giving him trouble and he closed the road.

Thanks,

Sunday he had a one lane road from gull rock to 16 mile. Pretty tough going. It was being snoed in by the time we left at one oclock. boar

I am fishing out of "Long Point Resort" this weekend and was wondering, where is Babblers road from LPR?

Babblers road runs out of Rocky Point, 6-8 mile drive to the west.

It's right off the highway, just before you get to Arneson's. It will be on the Right hand side. There is a sign, you can't miss it.

King Fisher, Welcome to the LOW forum.

Would you mind changing your handle? This could become confusing. Thanks, Kingfisher

As of 7:15 p.m. Wednesday - Babbler's message stated the road was plowed to 16 mile. We're wondering if we can make it off the road and set up or is the snow too deep to go off trail. Otherwise we'll maybe check out L.P. or Zipple.

When I was up on Sun. his road jus t ended, getting around was really tough. We tried but got stuck and ended up fishing where we dug out an caught alot of fish, I whish he would plow some off shoots or something I'd gladly pay an extre buck or two for that convienence. Boar

I was out there Saturday when he was plowing, he just ended it and turned around to head back.

The snow is deep out there with lots of drifting, don't think that travel will be very easy off the road.

Good luck

      I never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks
