Portable/4WD Fishing Advice

Recommended Posts

SalmonJedi

Hey guys - Been up to the LOW each of the past four January's(through resorts out over Pine) and was thinking about making a mid February run up there to try it with the portable. With all the snow assume will be limited to the road systems with the 4WD and however far we feel like pulling the portable from where we park.

My question is I've read a lot about the different roads (Bablers, Adrians, Zipple, etc) - which do you think would provide a guy with portable/4wd the best chance of getting on some fish in February? Thanks!!

Personally I have always had better luck on the reefs later in the season. I have done well other places too but Feb-Mar I think the bite is more consistent on the structure.

Babblers road goes to the reefs.... that is if he is still plowing at that time. Post again when it is closer and you should find out what you want to know.

If you live in the south metro just go to any big outdoors store and buy the Lakemaster map.

Then you need the Lakemaster MMC or SD of L.O.W. with a GPS that's compatible. Mid Feb. you'll wanna b north on da rocks.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
