Is 4 wheel drive a must?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Jerry is reporting only truck traffic out of Roger's. I haven't read anything that says this is the case on the east side. I was up last Friday in the mighty mini-van. I went out of Hudec's. Can anyone tell me if the van could still make it? Or must I continue to bother my friends that own trucks? Thanks in advance.

From the looks of the forecast, I wouldn't bring anything less than 4 wheel drive. Heck, I'm not sure I would go without a 4 wheeler. If it rains heavy, there will be alot of slush and water by the access come saturday night.

I'm planning on leaving for URL around noon. I'm still wondering if people are currently driving out with 2 wheel drive vehicles on the east side. Has the ice become so rutted that I should worry about losing a muffler due to low clearance when getting on and off the lake? I have a hard time believing it would get any slushier today than it was last Friday night. Am I out of line?

i went out of w.w last night. we drove around to find the bridge, crossed the bridge, and proceeded south. the whole way thinking i could do this with my mini-van. there were pockets of slush in places, where it didn't freeze from last week, but not very big. you just didn't want to stop in one. i would recomend a chain, or jerk strap just in case. it just wasn't that bad. i remember what it was like last year at this time-treacherous!---take someone fishing---
have a great time, and watch the weather. the conditions can change fast--be safe--jigglestick--

From what I saw coming in last night a 2wd should still be O.K.. But I have also driven many vehicles where I shouldn't have. shocked.gif My judgement may not be the best at times.
I think the rain will be the key. West Wind has room to move the road over 2 or 3 more times yet. That is why the access road looped so far to the north all year,,, so there was room to the south for this time of year.

Thanks for the info guys. I too remember the ice last year. Fortunately, the people on this site do a great job of keeping people informed and I was prepared for it. Hopefully we won't get much for rain as it's hard to beat fishing in the open on the ice in 40 degree weather. Have a great weekend.

      About the Rusties... I thought I posted this but it must have gone away with the server glitch.  Rusties have made it through oak narrows and are marching west. To the best of my knowledge they haven't gotten as far as Wakemup so Norwegian and HeadOlakes are still free of them.  When they get to us, I have my crab boil, trap, and old bay ready.  I figured trapping them east and importing them west might get me in trouble.   I can wait.

      Me too, going up for the week of July 4th for cabin projects and fishing and maybe some trail riding on the SxS. Oh, maybe some R&R and Coors Light too.

      I also have a ICIH, with a loud ac unit, would like to see a thermostat for it but most of time time I have house plugged into 120 volt outlet.

      Wow - 7 days of posts gone.  Seems like more than that.  Oh-well.  My next trip is a week and a half away.

      Per Rick on HSO they switched to a new server. Had a glitch in the database that lost a couple days of posts on HSO and FM

      Good luck fishing. It's a great way to spend retirement!

      Does anyone know where the more recent posts have gone? There were some posts from earlier in the week. BTW, not seeing any more floating dead minnows.....

      I had my last official guide trip Monday and Tuesday and we fished for Smallmouth bass. It was one of my regulars that I have fished with for over 10 years. George and I have caught 100's of Smallies over the years and this year was no different. We boated around 65 bass in two days in less than perfect conditions. Most were on topwater baits of one kind or another and the rest were taken on crank baits. I wasn't able to fish to much so George caught most of the fish. I know I will miss guiding and the friends I have made over the years. I guess I'll just have to fish more to get over all the time spent guiding.   Have a great season everybody.
