Shuttle service

Recommended Posts

kelly-p

For those people without an ATV that wish to get out fishing West Wind and Hudec's are offering a shuttle service where you can be hauled out and then picked up and brought back to shore later.
With the bite moving so close in now it shouldn't work out to bad. The last time I was out we fished in only 10 1/2 feet of water. With great results. smile.gif

Just got back from two great days of fishing. Ice conditions were good. (can't believe we couldn't still drive out - although many were). We ended up walking out about a mile and had some great fishing (thanks Little Italy for the spot). smile.gif

Too anyone that is thinking of going up there. Go now!!!! Ice conditions are really good and the fishing is hot.

Kelly-P, What a great idea with the shuttle service. It is nice to see that there are still some conciderate people in the world willing to help out their fellow fisherman. My questions to you are, What date are you starting the service? How much will it cost? Do you have space available for all of the vehicals to park? What time of the day will the service be offered(How early? How late?)? And how many people and equipment can be hauled at a single time? Thanks again for the great idea!

Pwaldow123,
It's too bad I didn't know you were around. I could have dropped you off at that spot. I spent the day bringing part of the bridge in to shore. I felt it was best to take it slow and rest the truck alot. And then seeing as I had to wait while the truck got it's wind back I did some fishing at each place to kill the time. grin.gif I finally got that bridge to shore about 10:30 tonight. smile.gif
Mixed dna,
We started today with good results. Everybody limited out and it was only a 1 1/2 mile ride.
The cost is still up in the air but it looks like we will be at $10 a person.
We are using snowmoble trailers so there is plenty of room.
We started taking people out about 4:00 today and picked them back up at 10:30.
The hardest part for me was going from the plow truck to an ATV. I miss my lights and not having everything right there where I am used to it.

Kelly,

It wasn't a problem, I could use some good old fashioned exercise. grin.gif Talked to some of the boys at West Wind and heard that you guys were short handed and were also trying to get the bridge hauled in. Didn't want to bother you, besides Little Italy was a huge help. Saw it from the distance but was the vehicle on the flatbed one of those that went into the ridge?

Good to hear about the shuttle service. There's still a lot of good fishing to go before the ice goes out.

I, for one, just wanted to say THANKS to you and all of the other guys up there for all of your hard work. You guys worked your #$%^%&&*% all winter , so the resut of us could come up there, catch some fish and not have to worry about anything, knowing that somebody would be around to bail us out. smile.gif

Thanks again and see you sometime this spring. Would love to hear all of the stories from this winter. The sample I got just cracked me up.

I'll be coming up this weekend. How much room do you have on the shuttle for equipment? Will I be able to bring my portable fish trap?

There is plenty of room for gear, Bring what ever you fish with.
Top speed depends on how rough a ride you want. smile.gif

Kelly,

Is the shuttle service available back to Duluth after a few too many at WW????????
If so would it be more than the standard $10????
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
HEHEHE

tubejig,
There are sleeper fishhouses on shore for that problem. smile.gif
The ride back in depends on the persons attitude on the way out, bad attitude and I forget you're out here. grin.gif

Watch out Ninetoe, it sounds like Kelly's memory is slipping, and it wouldn't surprise me if your face is the first thing he forgets.HeHeHe Hey Kelly, I just knew you'd find a solution to this problem. Now can you shuttle me back and forth to work. It shouldn't take you more than 8-hours each way on the wheeler and I'd have a good excuse if we were a couple days late!! Take care gents. grin.gif

KELLY, WILL ARRIVE ABOUT 6:30-7:00 @ WESTWIND ON FRIDAY. WILL THE SHUTTLE STILL TAKE US OUT? CAN YOU TAKE OUT 3 PEOPLE AT ONCE? IS THERE MUCH WATER OR SLUSH ON THE ICE? WOULD RUBBER BOOTS BE A GOOD IDEA? SHOULD WE BRING A SLED ALONG IN CASE WE NEED TO MOVE AROUND SOME ONCE WERE OUT ON THE LAKE? THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP & HARD WORK AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU FRIDAY.

Last night I had 4 people and all the equipment one trip, no problems. There is very little water or slush on the lake, it is freezing each night. There is plenty of room for a sled. Last night one group of 6 only had 57 fish but they did not have flashers and when it was too late they moved the hooks to more then a foot above the bottom. frown.gif The others groups limited out.
Two guys in a portable,,,they limited,,,,,,one of them caught 2 the other guy caught the rest of the limit. smile.gif Lots of smart comments there. grin.gif

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish. 
    • ANYFISH2
      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.
    • Wanderer
      Good job guys!
    • YellowFinRed
      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.
    • Gillraker
      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)
    • Wanderer
      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!
