Question's for Jonny P

My friends and I are coming up there from 1/24-1/27, wondering what the ice conditions are like? How much a road pass costs? If we need a spot plowed for a 8x18 wheelhouse how much does it cost? How much does it cost to put us on the fish?

Well first off I do not do business on the forums as they are for fishing info, and something about having more fun. ;\)

As for ice conditions we should be ok with the ice for now. I'm not saying you are perfectly safe as nobody ever is on the ice but I am starting to feel a litle better about being on the lake with a bigger truck. The only place I would be concerned is around the road banks and big drifts, thats where your thinner ice will be. (yet poeple still think its fun to jump them or cut through them crazy.gif)For snow and wheel house spots I am thinking the snow must have dropped or blew away or something this week because wheel houses are cruising all over and they are leaving trails behind for other to follow.

Roads fees at Hillmans is ten bucks, this gives you a super highway out 8.3 miles due west and at the 6 mile mark another larger road takes off Northwest into the heart of Crappie country or an area known as the crappie highway. I'm not sure how long this one is but it does go for a couple miles at least.

As for winter guiding I am booked up and very busy with sleeper houses from December 25th through the day we pull the houses off the ice due to break up. Some late season/spring guiding may be open but it all depends on ice conditions at the time.

bigbearslayer,

If you are a URL virgin, my suggestion is a set of tire chains for the truck. The chains are not always needed (last year and I think the year before) though the snow can be hard to gauge.

If in doubt,

1) park the house on the road, test the snow on foot

2) If you think you can make it through, make a path with the truck first then hook onto the house (especially if the house wheelpath does not follow the truck path)

2) If still in doubt, chain away

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
