Has anyone ever fished gabbro in the winter? Was wondering if it's worth the effort to trek in der.

I've never been in there for walleyes, but it is a popular crappie lake late in the winter. smile.gif

I have fished Gabbro a few times in the winter. I think with the amount of snow that we have this winter, it may be very difficult to get in there. For one thing, I don't believe they plow the Spruce Road past the S. Kawishiwi River entry point. That leaves you one mile from the Gabbro entry point trucking your gear even further than normal. I am not sure if they are drilling for mineral exploration past there or not, so you may be able to get in all the way, but I just don't know. Next off, you have that bear of a portage to get your gear over unless you know the cross country shortcut, which, I don't know that one either. I would also be really careful going between Little Gabbro and Big Gabbro with the ice conditions what they are and the current though there. I am not saying it's impossible- because I have done it, but it isn't going to be easy either. Pack light, bring skiis. Be prepared to haul gear 2-3 miles to fish. Good Luck!

Last year we went in and tried Gabbro for walleyes. They quit plowing at the kawish entry point so we road snowmobile into the portage. We did not get anything and never went back.

      It is my understanding that Pepin ice went out with the assist of the Coast Guard ice breaker.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.
