Access and Ice Condition Update

Recommended Posts

Paul Waldowski

We have opened up our access to Wheeler's and Snowmobiles. We have a good start to our road and trails blazed Doe Island Reef and to Shaw's Reef. We have punched many holes and have found a steady 8 inches of ice. Our plan is to have a couple of our 4 hole houses out in the bay by this weekend on perch spots.

Tony Roach and a couple of his guys were out this afternoon and got a few perch. They kept a couple of them for dinner.

Paul- wondering how far of a walk from your place to good fishable waters? Will be up on Friday and don't have the luxury of motorized transport on the pond. Any info/advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

gg,

By Friday it shouldn't be far at all. There are plenty of spots in the bay to fish.

awesome Paul -

how is the mobility of wheelers in that area once you leave the plowed roads? And ice conditions off of the plowed roads?

Hoping to be up there this weekend, but need to use my wheeler. crazy.gif

Reel,

It isn't that far to travel at all. Wheelers are able to access the further out spots, but it is tough going.

Will you be giving out rides in the plow truck during "The Frenzy"? grin.gif

T.O.

Maybe we will play chicken with the V-plows smile.gif

We now have a plowed wheeler trail out to Doe Island Reef. We have been able to extend our road bringing us almost even with Doe Island.

Fishing reports are few, as not many are going out yet. I did talk with one Gentleman that caught a dozen perch off of Doe Reef, 24 FOW, jigging spoon and minnow.

Hey Paul,

Good to meet you this morning. We fished around Doe Island reef all afternoon, with little success. Had 3 very nice smallmouth running in the 18 to 20 inch range, many small perch, no eyes. As far as wheelers go, we had no problem going out and moving around pulling two fishhouses, and two of us on the wheeler. It did get a little sticky coming back in with the snow starting to drift up with the mighty wind we had all day, but no real problems.

Thanks again Paul for the directions, and nicely plowed road out to the island, will see you soon. smile.gif

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
