Traveling out...?

Would a guy be able to drive an extended cab F-150 4x4 to either Oak, or Garden Island? Fishing at Zipple this year has been real hit or miss, or just slower action than years past.

I was just up to Oak on the snowmobile and there is much more snow there than on the south end. They have the ice road plowed from Angle Inlet to Oak that you could drive on, but other than that it looks like snowmobiles and bombers at this point. Getting to Garden by truck would be tough going as well. A couple of bad breakers that the snowmobile trail crosses, but I don't know the legality of using that with a truck. The snow is getting much deeper by Garden as well. There is usually a road plowed out to 16 mile from Warroad, but I haven't fished there recently.

There is no road plowed from Warroad to 16m. I can't remember there ever being one.

As mentioned you could get to Oak from the Angle mainland, as far as driving to Garden I would'nt try that!

To Garden, no way with all the pressure ridges this year. This year breakers are all over compared to the past.

Oh, and the staked/well marked trails are likely snowmobile trails. Had that problem last weekend with trucks thinking it's a road...not allowed.

Sorry, I had the wrong info on where the road to 16m comes out of. Is that Babbler's road from the rocky point area fiskyknut ? I guess I should leave giving directions to the pros, hate to send someone on a wild goose chase. I had current snow and trail conditions from Garden and Oak so thought I would throw my 2 cents in.

The road to 16 mile is Babbler's Lake Road. I wouldn't call it a road. It's a staked path that takes you straight to 16 mile. It is a bumpy slow ride unless you want to trash you truck. After you get just north of Gull Rock you should be good as far as ridges go. I was to 16 mile a few days ago with my 4WD. I've never heard of anyone driving a truck all the way to Garden but I'm no expert either.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
