Babbler's Road

8 posts in this topic

I heard Babbler has his road going around the crack by 12 mile to get to 16 mile or Arneson'r reef. Has anyone heard if he is going to have his bridge operational for the weekend to shorten the drive to 16 mile? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Well as of last nite just before dark the bridge was closed still. The road now runs towards 12mile then doglegs back adding about 2.5 miles if you want to get to Arnesons or 16mile or anywheres on the N side of the crack.

Road was all refrozen anyhow! Kinda lookin like some cracks between shore and that big bridged breaker could possibly become a problem with the temps moving up and down??? They had done a bit of buldging since the weekend it looked like yesterday.

How do you think it will be to get to Arneson's Reef, or just the north side of Gull Rock?

Just talked to a buddy who is up there right now (Friday). He said it was a long, bumpy ride around the crack.

mad.gif I can vouch for that. Very slow and very rough ride to Arneson's reef on Sat. The fishing and weather made up for it though.

Was out to Arnesons and 16 on Sat. I used ATV but plenty of trucks were out and about. A fair amount of water on the roads and not as much other places. It was full raingear on the ATV. I don't think he'll keep his road open to trucks too much longer. If you do a search his phone number will come up. I would call b/4 coming up. The ice has softened up a bit but still plenty solid. Have your extension on. The bite was OK. I fished Arnesons in the AM and caught 6-8 fish 12-14" I could have kept but only kept 1 15", all on jigging spoon. Went out to 16' and missed the set on a what felt like a hog within 5 minutes and then just caught a few more. All in all I had a blast. The fishing wasn't fast and furious but I still caught about 25 fish throughout the day and we are having fresh fish for din din tonight.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
