Any word yet on Bablers?

Recommended Posts

gator_slayer2

How's Bablers road? Has the fishing been good by Gull or others, like 12mi or 16mi? Heading up on Friday, and just curious on road conditions and if we can pull off the road-way to set a permenant house up? Otherwise, we're thinking Long Point by the Islands.....and if the fishing there is any good? I would hate to bug RICHARD AS HE IS PROBABLY VERY BUSY GETTING HIS ROAD INTO SHAPE AGAIN! A big thank-you to all the resorts for making our trips up to the big pond easy on our 4x4 pick-ups! Also a big thanks to the fisherman ppl for pulling those out that get stuck!!! Gator

I was up to gull rock this past wkd...friday nite - monday noon..4 guys and 35 eye/saugers..all around 14-16 inches..prob 20 small guys or pouts...caught 8 really nice perch as well..all 12-14 inch monsters..30 ft water north of the rock along the old trail..i would say to stay to the east and get as deep as possible..glow in the dark worked real well and lots of fish on the dead stick..smaller ones seemed to like the jig this time..

Good Luck

Got back Sunday, only fished Sat. and had real good luck on glow in the dark jigs with shiners! Lots of dinks, but very nice huge perch, eyes and sauger mixed in, the biggest was 19" eye...and rest were all 15"-17"ers! Guys that set up next to us didn't get anything,N. of the rock..we were there 2 weeks ago and did fairly well, but this time was even better! Thanks gottajig!!

King, you are gonna have fun getting your house off of shore, its banked up pretty good, Bablers road is getting tall on the sides and not much room to pass or meet anyone, and thats before Sundays and Tuesdays' wind storms!! Lots of people shoveling to get off the lake!! Someone else might have a better update before this weekend??? Didn't hear of anyone stealing or messin around with houses up there. It looked like the wind over last week might have wrecked one guys house (door open and windows), blew some tin off the roof?? Good Luck!! Gator

Gator- Did Richard still have the road out to 16 mile? We're headed up there on thursday night, already have the ranger loaded but if I don't have to bring it I'd rather not. I'm going to call up there first but I'm just curious. Thanks!

2k-Babler did have the road open to 16m, but now I'm not so sure with all the wind....hopefully, someone else chimes in and gives a report for over the week?!! It was snowing up there when we left a.m. Sunday with the wind kicking up also!!

      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.
    • Borch
      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.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
