Driving to 9 mile?

Recommended Posts

eyebjim

Has anyone been driving out to 9 mile with trucks and wheel houses or is that not advised? I see that hunters has posted that they have posted roads out to 9 mile. I'd like to go out there this weekend with the truck and not have to bring the wheeler. Any input is appreciated.

Thank you,

I have gone out from hunters point once without wheel house, mine is already out there. ($10 access fee, $30 if you have a wheel house). I have also gone out of Twin Pines, ($10 access and $15 for wheel house), and Garrison Sports on the west side. There are no marked roads to 9 mi. out of Twin Pines. Don't know if G.S. has marked roads to 9.

I have gone 4 times with 1/2 ton PU from west side useing GPS with auto-tracking on it, following same tracks. Drilled about 40 to 50 holes on way out, 17 to 20 inches of ice. I'm not saying this is a safe way to go. driving off roads is risky. There have been quite a few coming out from west. The other option is Liberty Beach, they also have a road to the 9 mile, alittle rough but its marked. Call ahead to resorts and check.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
