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.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
