What vehicle do I need?

2 posts in this topic

Just a quick question. I would like to make a trip up to Rainy and would like to know if I can get around to a few places to try for some walleyes with a 4x4 pick-up or do I need a 4 wheeler or snowmobile? Are there any spots close or is it time to head for Candian waters. Any info would be appreciated.

Right now the ice roads are still very driveable and if you leave the roads at the right places you can probably still get around okay. I drove around just fine with 2wd this afternoon but stayed on the roads for the most part. If we get a couple more days of mild temps that are forecasted a good share of the snow should be gone. The ice is very solid top to bottom so providing most of the remaining snow melts and runs down the holes we should be left with good ice and driving conditions for at least a couple weeks.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
