these northern mn forums are REALLY slow and quite, are the snow-slush conditions that bad that few are brave enough to go out?

Glenn, haven't been out on a lake around here since the day after Christmas. It was tough going on that one even though some guys had pounded it down with their snowmobiles. 4 of us gals are headed back to MilleLacs tomorrow, gonna give it another shot.

Glenn57,

Did I meet you on Bowstring last year? Are you the guy who stays at Jessie Lake? If so you gave me a lure that you like.

Let me know

Its not so bad if you have a snowmobile but not mant people do after 3-4 years with minimal snow. I bet those bearcats are worth more than gold to some people now.

Diago,did that lure happen to be chrome and blue? I think I know where it came from. It didnt work so well yesterday.

Went out from the NE acess with my sled and had no problem getting around on the north end. The only other people out drove out with trucks from Bowstring Shores, who have a nice road about a mile or more from his place to in front of the acess.

Hi Tim,

Good to hear from you! I was out to the spot where you gave me the lure, and got skunked. I snowshoed out in the slush. It was a good workout, but I got skunked. I even tried the lure you gave me, but to no avail. A couple of guys from deer river were trying to plow a road from the acess but got stuck and gave up. I have been getting some smaller crappies (9 inch)from a lake further north. I have also been getting some gills and eater crappies on another lake. Have you been having any sucess on bowstring?

Hi Tim the road that Bowstring Shores has to the north can you get around off the road with a truck when you get to the north by the access.Hope this cold weather coming this next week at least freezes the slush up.

Tom,he has some spurs at the end with houses and places to park.Lots of slush off the road right now where people drilled holes. Darv was trying to plow to a new area when I talked to him,might want to call him to find the latest info 832-3101.

Dont know if the slush will ever freeze this year.I guess thats what happens when we get a real winter unlike the last 5 or so years.

Thanks Tim, I remember back in the early 90's on Bowstring things were pretty much like this.
