Input appreciated for North of Pine and Adrian's Road

Recommended Posts

tbirath

We will be heading up this Thursday to fish North of Pine out of Adrian's road with our portables and would appreciate any input as to where to fish, should we head west or east of Adrian's road and your thoughts on how far out. Snow depth, are we restricted to the plowed roads with our truck? Appreciate any input, thanks for the help.

a group of us just came back this evening, we were up friday thru noon today. Adrians roads are in good shape, even with four wheel drive it will be near impossible to get off the plowed roads. there are some places you might be able to, but still tuff. the bite was very slow we spent most of the time in 28-32 feet of water, 2-3 miles out. we parked on the main road then pulled our portables off the road a few yards. no one color seems to do better than any other, stay near the bottom with short jigging motion. hope you have better weather than we did cold with 10-15 mph winds.

We were there from the 1st to the 4th.

There was no consistency in lures or colors except the hot lure was a chubby darter every day.

We caught the most fish in 27 feet but on other days had better luck in at 21-25 feet deep. We didnt catch anyfish in 33 feet of water.

We also didnt catch many fish in the eater size range maybe 8 for four days of fishing. We caught hundreds of small ones. In my opinion it was a pretty slow fishing or at least not exciting.

Was out yesterday on adrians road, the road itself is great, but as mentioned above getting off the road is the problem, if you have access to a snowmobile i would definitely bring it, otherwise you are going to be fishing off or very close to the road. fishing was real slow, but with the nasty wind/cold we weren't able to fish as long as we wanted. Also there was a ton of water coming up the holes, had three inches of standing water in the portable which doesn't make for a fun time. Oh well, always next weekend.

Thanks for the info, are there any side roads us portable guys can use to get away from the main road?

Yes there are alot of side roads but they are still major arteries to houses. A snowmobile would be nice to have if you have one.

You should have no problem getting off the "main" road. However, just as everyone has said you'll prolly need to use roads going east/west towards resort/lodge houses. I do this fairly often when the snow gets a little deeper...just try to stay a little ways away from the ones in use and you should be fine. Typically, not every house on their road will be in use....also a good way to tell where the resorts think fish will be....they'll try to put ppl on top of them.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
