Road situation for a pickup?

Recommended Posts

kgun

Heard Adrians has a road out 19 miles, last year we were up there with sleds during the rain in March, slammed em on bridges, this year was hoping to drive around the lake with the truck (Mar 12,13 & 14th)? Same old question, I guess....How much accessability will we have and are there forks in the road a guy can drive out on?

Dont count on driving a truck out to Bridges.There is a brief

window when the snow is mostly gone and you can drive anywhere (including places you should not). But you have to be ready

to go on a day or so notice.

Last weekend the road was 13.8 miles past Pine Island, and 4 miles across the bay of course, totaling about approx. 18 miles. There is still a decent little trek to Knight and Bridges from there.

Mr. Wizard

VMan,

Joes Dad gave me your cell # so I'll be calling you one of these days for insite. We're headed north with sleds and portables 3/12 for spring break. I'll be looking for where the hot bite is. Bob said hes bring the wheel house so maybe we'll set up one day near you. I love the reefs but the last trip up there was slow.

Wizard -

Sounds good. Bob called me last night and gave me the low down. I actually bought his 97 XLT for the same reason you mentioned - fishing the reefs.

I've also heard they've been slow and some reports even show that the resorts are moving the houses off of them. I'll have my wheel house parked somewhere off of Adrians road, probably near the gap, and fish deeper or on the reefs midday.

Call anytime and we'll figure something out. If you want to email me it is:

anybody have recent reports of how the truck travel off road has been this weekend? I am hoping to be able to drive the truck off the roads next weekend, do you think it will be possible?

Its questionable. The road is getting very sloppy with a crack that follows Adrians road out past pine island and water is starting to come up. The road did break open but they rerouted the road.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.

      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
