Access this weekend??

7 posts in this topic

Do you think there will be any way to get out on the lake this weekend? Or is the shoreline pretty much gone?

Based on last weekend 4 wheeler and sled travel should be ok for this weekend. The shorelines where still very solid other than the accesses from all the vehicle traffic. The snow was stgill there along shore where we went on Saturday with the sleds.

As far as I know all the roads are ATV or snowmobile now. It's best to call the road you plan on going out from for the latest info.

Thanks for the info guys. We were thinking of heading up one last weekend. We would only use four wheelers. I was just wondering how safe it was. Driving around at work today I noticed the ice is completely off most of the lakes in the metro area.

I see that Mort's has closed their access, according to their website.

I think Mort's and Roger's were dealing with a pressure ridge close to shore. As far as I know Hillman's is still letting ATV's/snowmobiles out as there isn't a ridge until 3+ miles. Hillman's phone. 218-647-8504

Jimmy, I think it would be a good weekend to spend with that certain love of your life one weekend this year.

Drunk, stupid and sitting on a bucket is no way to go through life flounder...opps I mean Jimmy!

P.S. A couple things to remember:

It's not the bait you use but how you present it.

It's not how deep you fish but how you wiggle your worm.

And in your case, Trouser trout don't count as fish aganist your limit!

Good Luck This Weekend

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
