Who will plow to the flats??

Recommended Posts

blackjackdavey10

As i sit here in Finlayson watching the snow pile up by the feet i wonder if i will see another batch of jumbo perch? I love the late bite on the mud but with this dump will any resort expend the energy and time to plow to the flats? Liberty used to be really on it but i don't know about this year any updates this week would be awsome I'd pay 20$ for another trip out for Jumbos....

I would think that if you could pull a house or if it was nice out, you could get by with a quad or a sled to get out there. Just my thought, that's what I would do. Then you could get to wherever you want. I would think that with all the snow a sled would probably be a bit better than a quad though. Just for sake of possibly getting stuck in a two foot drift three miles from shore! smirk.gif

hunters point resort said that he is going to have four trucks plowing and will have roads open for the weekend.

i had a bunch of minneapolis firemen up monday and tuesday, and george plowed over 20 miles of road over the 2 days. you could get around real good with a 2 wheel drive van. i am sure that he will at least open up what he plowed monday and tuesday.................tom fellegy

Tom is correct.

Just got off the phone with George at Nitti's Hunters Point and he is going to be plowing roads out to 3 mile only at this time.

The winds are pretty steady and the snow is drifting pretty bad. We have around 18 inches of snow and its very light and drifting everywhere. George told me that until the winds die down he will not be plowing roads until the winds die down.

There is around 30 plus inches of new snow on the lake and drifting all over. Bring your snowmobile if you want to get around. Four Wheelers will not cut it off the roads! We are not plowing any roads and I spoke with Kevin this morning and Mac's is not plowing any roads either. I called Fishers Resort this morning and their road is closed also.

I haven't heard of any fishing reports as of today. Everyone has been crambling just to get the fish houses off the lake.

Bring your snowmobiles up and enjoy some trail riding and a little perch fishing. All the trails are freshly groomed and look like a ton of fun! I know thats what I ma going to do this weekend.

Fish On!!!

Was out yesterday from hunters...he has plowed paths to several area's. The only problem I would see in a car is trying to find somewhere to pull off the roads. The roads are plowed 1 1/2 lanes...not the typical highways. You would have to find a safe spot to pull over on the snow so other vehicles could get around you. I would just bring a shovel...

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week. 
    • Satchmo
      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.
