Recommended Posts

BD110

Has anyone been out on Rice lake as of late. It looks like the dammaged area is healing up well. Any word on the lake as far as slush or other bad spots to look out for?

Gritsnham,

I sent you an e-mail with my cell number. Wonering if you made it out on Rice yesterday or did you head to Fish lake?

Any info anyone would like to share would be great.

I was on Rice on thursday with my wheeler, there is a road again, and there are people driving out there. I did hit some slush but it wasnt bad enough to get me stuck. good luck

Hey Bd,

We did end up going to rice lake and drove out there was also a truck out there. The road gets sketchy shortly after the first island and I did not want to drive over some of the frozen slush pockets to got farther. The truck I talked to didnt try to get any farther either. Caught some decent sized northerns by the first island but slo other than that. Good luck out there but watch out for the slush spots some could be bad.

I was up at Rice today and there is a nice road plowed about 40 yards away from the old road that the struck fell in. Looked like trucks out to 1st island and some sleds and wheelers beyond that.

Thanks for the replies guys. I'm not sure if it's still my plan to hit Rice on Sunday or not. I'll have to see what the morning brings.

I'd try to stay on the beaten path out there, I had to go out the other night and help my buddy pull his wheeler out of a slush pocket that was about mid thigh deep. He found a couple of them with the wheeler on his way to his permanent. Would have been a chore if it had been a truck instead of a wheeler

wow, thats incredible. And I thought 8 inches of slush was bad. I hear there is some cold weather coming, hopefully that clears things up.

I was out on Rice lake this afternoon. I was not happy with the conditions that I found to say the least. My 4-wheeler will not be making a trip out that way again anytime soon. Not only is there tons of slush water can be found just about any direction you travel. Even with the bitter cold that is going to show up I'm not sure that will be the ticket with Rice lake being trashed the way it is. Only time will tell.

Yea I would say to travel away from the road a sled is the ONLY option unless you can drag like superman. O well I feel like im wasting fishing time out on rice usually so now I have a reason to stay away.

Careful traveing out there

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
