Pesky Q's

All these have been asked I'm sure. I'll be at URL in a week out of Beacon. We will be fishing out of portables. 1.) With the recent snows is off-roading on the lake a no go? 2.) I've heard 2 responses on this... Does one need an auger extension as of now? My buddy who was just there said no... a lake resident I called earlier said yes. 3.)How far can one get on Beacon's road? Can't wait.

The road at Beacon was around 4 miles last weekend

Beacon's is now using our road along the shoreline to get around the pressure ridges. It goes 5 miles west then where we get through the old ridge Beacon's heads back SE to where they had the best fishing before the pressure ridges blew. I doubt that any of the roads here on the Waskish side of the lake will be bridging the ridges any more this winter. There is no need to as all of the roads, Westwind, Red Lake Adventures, Hillman's and Beacon's are all getting plenty of fish without the hassle and danger of dealing with the bridges. The ridges got huge. Buddy has parts of the north/south ridge as high as a fish house. All of the roads get out to the 15 to 16 foot depth on the Lakemaster chip without bridging.

No you most likely will not need an extension, just take your chances. grin

Kelly-

Is the new Beacons road off the their lake access then take a right soon after you get on the lake? Just curious because I saw a couple people driving the shoreline heading north last Sunday when I was leaving the lake. How is the snow depth ? Will it still be possible to travel off road with a wheel house?

Yes take a right right off the access. I think you can still drive out the old road as far as the pressure ridge. I saw a wheelhouse going cross country today and he seemed to be doing OK. Dean was also plowing out loops for some wheel house's today when I swung over to the area Beacon's is in to see how he was doing.

Once you get to the corner at ice montain take or stay left and hook back SE to the deeper water if you take the long road, short road just drive out towards the ridge and set up.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
