Driving to oak island

Recommended Posts

Can a guy drive a pick up to the oak/flag island area, i know they drive the bombardiers out there but do the resorts allow people to drive out as well, and is it even possible?

You can drive out there from the NW Angle no problem. Don't try it from the south shores.

Thanks fisky, I was planning on going up through the angle, that'd be a heck of a drive from the south shores crazy.gif

Zach, it's a beautiful drive from Roseau to the angle, and then a peice of cake once you are on the ice road, out to Oak.

Hemlock,

I was told by a resort up there that i would not be able to make it out to oak island by vehicle, actually they just said that they don't plow out to the island, but i would imagine with the little amount of snow this year one should be able to make it with a pick up?

I was at the angle two weeks ago. There is a road from Youngs Bay to Oak Island that is 40 yard wide. No problem getting out there. We drove right to Sportsmens to buy minnows and hit the reefs from there. The road also goes to Flag Island. Our guide actualy told us you can drive all the way to Kenora on the ice roads.

Hope this helps.

You were misinformed Zach. The islands depend on that ice road and it's one of the first ones in on the lake. As stated, it's wide, and the best road on the whole lake that I've come across. Yes, you can drive right to Kenora as well on the ice road. Aside from Oak/Flag, there are reserves on the ON side that depend on those roads. Once off the road, it is possible to go anywhere in 4wd....as long as you know where to go and where not to go.

Thanks for the info guys. How far would i have to go to find some crappies from the oak island flats? I'm hoping to get up there on friday and fish through sunday, if we do well on walleyes and have some time left over we'd like to get on some crappies.

Ask around with the locals at the resort, etc..but you should be able to find some around Falcon Island. It's a huge island, but either the west side, or the east side...I know it's vague, but it's a start.

Good luck!

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      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.
