Recommended Posts

Any recent reports on conditions on Whitefish Bay? We hope to bring snowmobiles up late next week for travel and to pull portables.

Lots of slush up in that area now...Just got back and traveled Whitefish and many other lakes-No problem getting around for us but we don't pull shacks...Lots of ice build up under the sleds.

It's still really easy getting around despite the slush. There's not tons of snow out there, so it's pretty manageable. As was said before, there's a lot of ice build up under the sleds. Be sure to knock the slush out of your tracks and the tunnel of your sled before calling it a night. Otherwise you'll be frozen solid.

Thanks for the replys...we're still debating about next weekends trip. Any guesses as to if conditions will improve or not with the slush in the next week? For what we plan we need to pull sleds behind the machines. Would sunset channel be any better or worse?

What are you running for sleds? If you've got any power and anything for lugs on your tracks, you should be just fine. There's a lot of tracks to stay running in. I wouldn't worry about it if you've got half decent sleds. We didn't have anything special for sleds.

There are plenty of packed trails in the main travel corridors....I don't know what they got for precip or melting since we left on Tuesday...We had one person with a lowriding older yamaha vmax with next to no lug left and he made it...a couple times barely, but made it..If he would have been pulling a house, no way he would have made it through some of the deeper water spots..it got worse by Tuesday for sure....We don't stay on the main pathways for long though either...If you have to pull sleds behind and don't have longtracks I would think twice if it were me....We pulled houses/tubs once, never again...Make some racks for your sleds and tough it out outside.. grin

This past weekend has gone from warm weather, rain, a lot of water on the lake to almost no snow on the lake. Yesterday it snowed almost 8 inches and this morning it is -4 below. Everything now has froze up and it is easier to get around.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
