Wood Tick Trail

Recommended Posts

IXL

There is a road called the wood tick trail a few miles north of Hackensack of 371. this summer I took a drive along it a noticed a few little lakes along it. Has anyone ever fished any of these?

yes I have, there is lots of small lakes tucked back in there and I have had some great fishing at times, some are a little hard to get a boat in though, get a map of that area and you will also find lakes further back in some of the logging roads that are also fun lakes to fish.

i live down in the cities and have found that trail an some fish back there. but ive never fished it in the winter. mainly because i didnt know if the dirt roads for miles get plowed back there. can you drive back there in the winter without getting stuck confused.gifgrin.gif

I don't believe it gets plowed...it is used as a snowmobile trail through the winter (at least it used to be when I was young, so that may have changed). Very Pretty back in there in the winter..

It gets plowed from county road 5 down to moccasin lake then it stops and is used as a snowmobil trail, the sleds keep these trails packed pretty good and you can usaully drive down them with a 4 x 4 truck

IXL, I was back on a lake last weekend. Some of them have been killed off a few years back while others are definitely worth fishing. I wouldn't recommend going on any lake in the winter without knowing the lake and ice conditions. I'm not trying to persuade you in not fishing, but in some cases there are springs you need to stay clear of! I would be more than happy to show you some decent spots when you are up in the area. Also, travel on the woodtick isn't difficult at all right now. I pulled my trailer with my 4 wheeler on it last weekend and was able to go where ever I wanted. JIMBO, which lakes do you fish off the Tick?

We drove from 371 to Moccasin yesterday. However, the access is not plowed and I doubt if a wheeler will get through. Snowmobiles have been there. We did not go down to the lake. However, it looked like it had some darker areas which to me would mean slush. So, I have no ice report or fishing report. 3 guys were on Stocking and had caught only one crappie.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
