Warroad Access?

10 posts in this topic

Just wondering guys if you can still drive the trucks out on the warroad access there by the casino for pike fishing. Trying to decide whether i need to get the trailer and pull the wheeler up, which i dont want to do for just a day trip up there. Thanks

I went on at Springsteel yesterday with no probs. Appeared that folks were getting out at Warroad from what I could see from the N. Iffin the access at Warroad is impassable you would be able to get on the ice at Springsteel depending on just when you're planning on going of course.

Shae,

Go to springsteele and take the sharpest left turn you can take right off the access. The so called road takes you over some smaller rocks that on normal water levels I'm sure aren't visiable. Head straight NW about three miles, oh are you only pike fishing??? If so thats' where I'm giving you our info. If you have a gps on hand go until you almonst run into the main point (sorry don't know the name of it) we were out about1/4mile from what you can see is a camper up on shore in about 11ft down to 6th of water with tip ups.

Regarding quick strike rigs, I didn't purchase them but some of my buddies did before we got there and at the bait shop in town they had dead bait harnesses that are "L" shaped and stuck into the ciscos and then you placed the treple where you wanted it. This set up was AWESOME and was 100% successful compared to the quick strike system on are other tip ups. 80/20 of our pike where on live suckers so I would look into bringing up some live bait too. Between 7 guys and four days of tip up fishing we went threw about 10lbs of deadbait.

Good luck and if you want exact cordinates let me know???

Yeah this is strickly a pike fishing adventure for me and my buddy. He was up a week ago and had tough luck out of warroad so we haven't decided where to go yet. Thanks for the offer of cordinates, i hate asking for them but if you feel like sending them too me my email address is shaex001@mail.crk.umn.edu.

Also did you have any luck on live bait or mainly dead. Usually i use both, but not having to pay the money for live minnows would be nice too, but i'll probably pick some up for saftey's sake.

We also have smelt hooks, have you ever used them, i havent in probably 6 years and being 20 now i was a youngen and cant remember if they worked or not. Thanks for all your help guys.

I would like to thank you fiskyknut and especially you meat-grinder for your help. I will lay out the story for you tomorrow with pictures since i am a little too tired tonight to upload the photos. But we didn't do great by any means but had a lot of fun. We ended up catching 4 a 34, 32, 28, and a 21 inch northern, of course all released to be caught another day. Missed a couple others but i can say i was 3 for 3 on flags and catches. All fish were caught on Hairing (sp). It was a great day with probably the best weather i have ever had in my last 8 years of going up there. Thanks Again.
