Snow cover

Heading up this weekend. How much snow is on the Lake? Haven't been up all year and want to avoid the trailer and the sled if possible and just stick with the truck.

I was up two weeks ago and the roads were plowed pretty nicely, I'm sure the winds have closed of some of the less used ones. But the one time we did go off road with the 4x4 Mitsubishi Montero we got stuck, bring a shovel for sure. You will have some trouble if you try to go off road. Partly because the banks are high on the sides and it's difficult to find a spot to leave the road and then come back on.

there is alot in places, and none in others. I'd probably bring a sled or wheeler if you have the option. I saw lots of trucks stuck last week. the problem is that the snow is hard. you'll be driving along just fine, then all of a sudden...thud, you break through and have to spend 10 + minutes with a shovel!!! I had the wheeler and got around just fine. plus with the wind, there's quite a few big drifts that are hard to see until it's too later, if you do go with the truck, bring a couple shovels and just be very careful!!! but I'd definetly bring the sled

the warm weather this weekend should help it start to melt down.

I agree, I got stuck with a 2006 f150 twice just moving along then you hit a bank that is tuff and your stuck. Now you can get out simply by shoveling but it took an extra half hour to hour to get out where I wanted to go. Otherwise stink to the rouds and you should be good, if you don't mind being in the crowd. I was out on andersons reef and went out to 7 mile on wheelers, many areas had little of no snow then others had huge long drifts.

Better have chains if your planning on getn off the plowed road! Anything else forget it with a truck. Wheeler ya prolly, but i wouldnt be going anywhere out on the north end without a shovel and a heavy foot!

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
