Resorts with plowed roads

Recommended Posts

fishfearme

Lets start a list of resorts that are maintaining ice roads.

Barnacles, Lyback's and Hunters Point are three that I know of. Heading to Barnacles in the morning.

Do these roads that are being plowed have access points where you cant break thru to go off on your own.The plow berms can be a bear to get thru.

You won't get far with a wheeler or a truck. Was up there all weekend, struggled in areas with snowmobiles. Lots of water creeping up on the ice.

Do any of you guys know if red door is going to be maintaining their roads at all? I am hoping to make it out there over my spring break next week. Thanks for any info.

they kind of left us high and dry last year when there was plenty of ice left. They pulled there bridge while Barnacles kept there's going for weeks and won me over big time. I usually get more fishing tips from these guys too, they seem to work harder at it.

I think Hunters was out to 3 mile this weekend. 2 mile for sure. With the 40 degree temps there is going to be mucho water on the ice this weekend. Gonna be tough traveling even with sleds. I think the Whitecap owner said he was gonna plow out his road this week to for the big perch pounder deal.

was up yesterday out of Hunters, they were out plowing a lot yesterday, Definately making it out to the middle. We think we were on 7 mile, and roads went a long way further north/west of where we were. Fishing wasn't any good however.

Barnacles plowed roads to the flats yesterday. Hunters and Barnacles roads meet at the jug. Took me most of the day, but I found them in 32 feet.

He has great road service always keeping them safe and maintained and I will always trust him based on my expirence with him in the last couple of years. A great guy who will always give you good information!

I talked to a buddy this evening (Thurs) who is up on the NW west side. He said Terry's Harbor (St Albans Bay) has wide plowed roads out to several good spots including deep rocks on Seguichi point, Sherman's point, Sherman's mud flat, Rockpile Flat, Brown's Point, 7 Mi Flat, and some other spots I didn't catch. He said the perch are hitting on the deep rocks.

Eddy's been busy out of Lyback's this week and has an excellent road system to all kinds of structure. rocks, mud, gravel, take your pick. he's even got roads following break lines to make things easier.

It took us all morning but we finally found the JUMBOS!!! 22ft to 26ft of water just off the Doe Island Reef. The JUMBOS are in deeper water as we caught smaller perch in the shallower water.

The weather is UNBELIEVEABLE!!! You better get up here and fih these GIANT JUMBOS! Its going to be a great month of fishing here on Mille Lacs!

We have around 5 miles of roads gouing from Cedar Creek along Doe Island Reef and In the Bay.

See ya up here at Mille Lacs Lake!!!

I will post pictures later today.

Fish On!!!

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
