Can I get a boat in at the gap this weekend?

4 posts in this topic

I heard that it looks like I should be able to put a boat in at the gap this weekend---can anyone give me the low down on the ice conditions in the gap/four mile bay?

Yah, I don't know if it'll be open or not? I can tell you it's getting closer! I was looking at the Clementson Resort Web site and they are saying the river is open past Clementson a little ways. So it is moving and opening up, but...There is a lot of river to go before reaching the bay. Something like 14 miles of river opening in two days??? I dunno, ya might have to fish the river.

I'm coming up this Saturday and personally it doesn't matter to me. Bay or river, theres more than enough water to fish in the river and the Sturgeon fishing is just as good if you know where to look!

I'm just hoping it's not gonna be pouring rain all day on Saturday...Common nice weather!!!!! grin.gif

I called Schusters this morning. He said the river is open to Baudette. It is also open across from the resort and 4 mile bay is all open. He thought by tomorrow you might be able to launch and get to 4 mile bay.

      thanks for the info, we will wait and see too? not worth it. will walk out if we have too. much more fun getting there the day before. was up two weekends ago and had 16" of ice. they say 20 " at the sight of the tournament. Hopefully the colder weather will help

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?

      Yes.  On the north end.
