Snowmobile Trails???

Recommended Posts

GoggleEye

I know there is a snowmobile forum, but I wanted to post this here also. Are the snowmobile trails around Mille Lacs rideable right now or are they in rough shape? Thinking about coming up for a day to ride the trails and do a little fishing also. I am bringing my girlfriend with, so I do not want to make the trip up there if the trails are not rideable. She will never be able to fish for the entire day, I need to have another activity for her to break up the day a little. Thanks for any help.

The trails are in TERRIBLE shape. We had the one good snowfall early and the riding was GREAT for a couple weeks but not any more. But remember you can still ride on the lake which has allot of snow. This weekend is the Arctic Blast so there will be sledes all over the place on the lake.

I just got back after being in the cities and it looks like we got az couple inches on snow up here and the ditches look OK and should be good for a day or so.

Alright, thanks a bunch guys. I still may come up and fish for the day, and when my girlfriend gets bored, I'll just take her out for a ride on the sled around the lake. Tight lines and deep snow to ya!

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
