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

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
