It has been windy and a few more inches of snow has fallen since last Sunday. Can anyone tell me if one can still venture off into non crowded/non plowed areas with a 4 x 4 vehicle?

I like to keep from getting corraled in by late comers and listening to constant auger noise.

Thanks, Mudflap

I was there 1-11 thru 1-13 you could travel almost anywhere in 4wheel high. watch out for some of the drifts but otherwise its fine.

yes we were up the 11th and 12th too. i'd say another 4" snow on wed by the time we left wed night. but could still get around ok but wouldn't take off cross country! with wind that came up thurs. i'm sure there are plenty of drifts that will cause problems.

Thanks for the info...I have much respect for the big lake after doing stupid things in cold and windy weather.

Kelly, I'm sure you've come across fisherman in predicaments on the ice that make you wonder if they any common sense.

I love to fish, but I also like to keep my fingers and toes intact. My son wants to get up this weekend after seeing the results of past trips last week. I'm kind of leaning towards starting a warm fire and watching some football. However, I did bring the Vikes luck by ignoring them and not turning a radio on the lake last weekend.

Do guys really tie rigs together to get to their honey holes?

rigs, houses, rigs to houses, houses to rigs, each other.... been there done them all! The best was wayching Kelly lasso the labshack and haul it to a honey hole! grin.gif I can still remember the house giving birth to a healthy, bouncing 220 lb, fisherman when it stopped!!! wink.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
