Is Bitter mostly passable by truck?

9 posts in this topic

Headed out Sunday for 5 days just checking to see if we need the snowmobiles or not.

Last weekend, I fished Waubay and a few others near Webster. I did not get a chance to run over to Bitter, but I was told they were driving trucks. All the lakes I was on or drove by had trucks. There is very little snow in the area and very thick ice. Bring an extension.

Call Sportsman's Cove and they will give you an update on Bitter.

You will, be just fine. I was just there last weekend. There are drifts that will get you though. Snow is rock hard.

Good luck

Drifts are starting to build and become unseeable, pulled out quite a few guys and got stuck 4 times the three days we fished.

Wondering what the conditions are? We are thinking about pulling the ice castle out this weekend. Is that even going to be a possibility with the warmer temps? Thanks for the input.

How's the ice out there? We are hoping to come out Friday morning and give it a try. Did the last week snow fall hurt in getting around the lake?

Good ice. Was out there last weekend. Just don't go out of the Bitter lake lodge access, there's an ice heavy out from there. Go out of southeast access and you can get anywhere you like. Just a thin layer of crusty snow. Fishing was very spotty at best.

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
