Is the snowmobile trail open?

Recommended Posts

lookin4fish

Just wondering if anyone knows if the snowmobile trail from wheelers point up in to canada is open/maintained? I hope to put on a few miles if the fishing gets slow. i suspect it will be bumpy with the winds that have gone through there making drifts. how often do they groom it? thanks for the info!

Yepper they were staked a couple of weeks ago. I think they're groomed weekly.

Is there still a big crack up by Knight Island? Or has it healed itself up?

Hey Fisky: Your the man in the know. I understand that you must have skis on the front and tracks on the back with a Snowmobile licence and trail trag to run the trail to Knight and Bridges, but is there another trail for those of us who have tracks on all four corners and no trail sticker. How do the resorts get their houses out there?? I'll be up in a week and want to go out to Knight and Bridges. What is the best way??? Kaz confused.gif

Yepper that is kind of a ?? or dilema is'nt it when it comes to those 4 tracked units. I'm not sure how stickler the CO's and Sherriffs are on ATV's such as yours on the designated trails either. Have you spoke with Charlie and crew in re. to this? When you have tracks on an ATV is it still registered as such or do you have to get OHV tags? I gots no answer for you buddy!!!

The resorts pull huts with Bombers and track vans. I was up there 2 maybe 3 times last year where we had departed from the east side and we went up via snowmobiles on a Bomber track, not the groomed snomobile track. I know it was a Bomber track because we passed a couple.

Man oh man was I surprised at the number of resort houses way out there last year compared to years past. I was a tad dissappointed to roll way up to a waypoint on a small pile and found 4 resort huts spread accross it. Bet there was close to 40 or 50 resort huts scattered on or around the piles out around there.

Being you did'nt make her up in December I bet you're just about ready eh!!!

Take care....Norm

I was up at Knight and Bridges yesterday and I only ran across 1 crack that was about 12" wide but I came from the Long Point area. That was about the only excitement I had all day! Fishing was not very good for us and we hopped around to 5 different locations. I can verify that the trail was marked through that area. The trail looked to be in excellent condition.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
