Getting around in a car

Recommended Posts

I ope to make it up to URL this Saturday to get some slabs.

How easy is it to get around the lake with a car right now? (Assuming that this forecasted snowstorm stays to the south, anyways?)

Thanks for your help!

With current conditions and you pick and choose where you drive you should be ok. Any drifting or snow it could get ugly for cars quick.

I had my car up there last weekend - wasn't bad - for the most part. I did leave on Sunday night - in the dark - and it was blowing pretty good - ended up going across country when I got off the road a ways (not on purpose)made it alright, but it was a little hairy for a while, let's just say I was glad to see shore finally.

Maybe it was just wishful thinking - I'm not ging to chance it with the impending snowstorm. I'm really not in the mood of getting stranded on URL durign a winter storm . . . .

I'll just find a lake around Brainerd to go on, until the forecast looks more promising.

Thanks for the reports! Catch some for me!

      Looks like a cougar to me.

      Interesting pic!!   Could be the pic but looks to dark and fur seems to "fluffy" for a cougar?   My first thought was a bear, neck seems to long and the color change on lower jaw says no.   I am going to go with a wolf.   Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks to the expert advice from Mr EyeGuy 54 (Royce) I was able to find myself a super nice spot of living green cabbage weeds. Not 5 minutes into my first pass I had a nice 19” pike. Over about a half hour I ended with 2 nice eater northerns and threw back two smaller ones and released 3 largemouth. Trolling cranks on the weedlines on braid was the ticket. It was sure windy but it was barely doable. Went back out this evening and got a 21” pike and lost probably 6 due to boat control issues in the wind. And a few more bass and another on a spinner bait. Hopefully can get a few more casts in Saturday or Sunday but we’ll see what the weather does. If you can get out take advantage of it. But please wear your life preserver and be smart water temps are about 45 degrees and will continue to drop fast now. It doesn’t lake long for things to go south quick. All in all a good season lots of great memories and great fish boated. So long open water 2018 and welcome ice season 18-19!
