driving to 5 mile

Recommended Posts

57johnson

Anyone driving a half ton and wheel house to 5 mile, looking to drag the wheelhouse out there friday. How is the snow? Is anyone going to plow a road from Warroad again this year? I'd be happy to chip in for that service. I would consider 12 mile if there was a road from rocky point.

Yep - there's a truck path that parallels Heath's bomber trail out there. 4WD is recommended. Nothing is plowed as of last night.

Springsteel crew finished their plow track to the S-tip late last week Chris. 5mile is pretty much straight S of the S-tip around about 4 miles. It sits nearly smack dab in the middle of Muskeg bay 5 miles out from Warroad.

Yes,my mistake Elm point,then I'm assuming your reference to south tip is the same as buffalo point?That is where the nice sand bar is dividing the canadian/us boarder right?That guy with the red&white permanent (Pilot I think?)sets his out there often.(A freind of Jake's)c63

Ya man you may just wanna break out the BIG beans and get yourself a map eh!!

Hmmm, how to explain? There is Buffalo point and the south tip of Buffalo point. These are both mainland Manitoba, Buffalo to the N and South Buffalo to the south {duh!}. The waters just out from, or south of the South tip are US waters waters of Muskeg Bay. The border runs east out into the lake from there for a couple of miles as well and there is a sandbar nearshore there which you may be reffering to. "Whiskey Flats" sits out here to the east along the border as well and you may be thinking of that?

If I was more puter savvy I'd send you something mapwise off my LM software but that would be a hairpuller!!

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      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.
