Bringing a portable out?

Recommended Posts

Kyle Sandberg

In Feburary I'm heading out to LOW for the first time. We are heading out of Sportsmans Lodge (I think). We'll be going out of the bombadeers and I was wondering if they allow you to bring your portable with or do they not allow that. Thanks for any help.

I asked another resort the same question and they said "no" that they didnt have enough room. You would also have to take the auger which is even more space. I would think most resorts go under the same policy and would say no.

I wouldn't plan on bring it. If you go out of a resort where you can drive out on their roads like Zipple then yes. But if you are going in a track van there isn't room for it. Maybe they will be willing to do it for you but I would bet it will cost more.

If the track vehicle has a hitch you can(or should)be able to bring it.I know depending on the amount of snow on the ice they may not want the portables/augers 'cause people drill to close to the shacks and flood them.c63I enjoy bringing an auger at least so I can fish outside alittle of the time.The owner at the place we always go says"why do rent a house from me when I come out here your always fishing outside" grin.gif Just call ahead and see if it's ok,eh?

If you have a party of a few guys going, just have a couple guys go in the bomber and you can follow the bomber with your sled and portable. That way, all your equip is in the portable and you have your "home" house as well as the opportunity to fish outside a little bit if needed. I don't think most resorts would care if you did that but just check like the last post said.

      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year...

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.

      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!
