Off Road Travel

Recommended Posts

Well I am not sure on how many have tried driving to where ever they wanted on the lake off of the roads. I gave it a shot on Saturday the 18th and drove from Rogers to Hillmans with a F250. Only tracks i seen between the places where ours. So if anyone is wondering about driving off road you can do it. Truck sunk about 6-8 inches in snow while driving oner there.

Drove out of Hillmans. Was able to drive off road in most areas but not everywhere. Found an area were the truck broke through double ice and got stuck in 8-10" of water. Needed to be towed out by my buddy. Good thing I remembered to bring my tow strap with.

Oh yeah i forgot about the poker chip. Yeah less educated would be correct. I wonder if anyone caught my fishing pole. On Sunday we went to the end of Hillmans road after you guys left and caught some big perch and small walleyes. We stayed untill noon and then left.

can anyone tell me what condition the plowed roads are in? i was up last weekend and we went out on saturday when the roads were sloppy. it was no problem getting out but buy sunday evening when we wanted to head home, we could not pull the fishhouse off the lake. we spent 3 hours trying to get unstuck. the standing water on the roads had formed an inch layer of ice the the truck was just too wimppy to break through while pullong the shack. i just couldnt get traction. thankfully there was an extremelt nice local gentleman who pulled our shack off the ice because i did not have 4 wheel drive and that is what was needed to get off the lake.

so back to my question, are the plowed roads in good enough shape to pull a 6x14 shack out with a 2 wheel drive vehicle? thanks for the info!

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
