How is it going? Inquiring minds want to know!!!!
We have had our Sleepers and Day houses out going on our second week now and fishing has been pretty good. There have been some slow times for sure but all in all good fishing. Now as far as our Lake Access!
Well!! As many of you know – it is an ice heave haven out here! We are keeping our Lake Access open to ATV’s and Snowmobile’s due to the conditions we found yesterday.
Dale ventured out to see of the possibilities of somehow getting through or around ice heaves in order to open to vehicles and fish house’s. The results were bittersweet.
There may be a way but it will entail literally “busting” through some of the ice heaves and we will not know if that will even work! The “BITTER” part of this is the crack by Gull Rock that run’s East and West! The ice on both sides of the crack, in the area that Dale checked, is only 3 inches to 5 inches thick. You and I both know 3 inches will not hold any vehicle,will not hold much of anything!
So what does this mean???? We will continue to only be open to ATV’s and Snowmobiles and we will be back out there to check the conditions again in the next 48 hours. We are talking about going out to that area and clean it off so she can gain some inches. We may have all gained a few inches over the holiday that we now will spend time working off but not the case here. WE WANT TO GAIN INCHES HERE ON LAKE OF THE WOODS – GULL ROCK AREA!!!
To top it off we have build some pretty darn nice bridges this year. The one bridge is out at the end of the staked trail that heads towards Gull Rock! We also have a staked trail with smooth sailing and NO crack or bridge towards Twin Islands.
As we have said over the past week – PLEASE AS YOU VENTURE OUT ON YOUR OWN – CHECK THE ICE AS YOU GO – ice thickness can change quite fast!!!!
