BW how old are your kids? I might bring my 2 oldest (7 and 5) out for the day along with the skidoo and the sleigh so they can pull each other around, there will be fun things for all to do. Be nice if you can make it...Rod

It's turning into a bit of a toss-up for me as this month is getting pretty hectic.  I am thinking about possibly getting up early Saturday and just making it a day trip.  I understand that going up Hwy 6 from Winnipeg is actually the quickest way to get there.  There is always a possibility I could have a child or 3 along with me.

Ill bring my own personal collection, I will have the skidoo and the dvd player out there so we will have stuff for them too do. Hopefully they will be too busy catching fish as the bite is really begining to pick up out there.

I've never seen Lake Dauphin before, and have no clue as to where to go to get to the shacks.  Is there a landmark we should look for, a highway #, or town to get us on track?  Any suggestions on best way in from Winnipeg?  Maybe Rock Bottom you or Grump could put up a map or some directions in the next 10 days?  Thx.

this is very easy without a map..but i will do one anyway before long.....#5 highway west of st.rose du lac about 19 kms to Ochre River....right into town on highway #20....7.1 kms north of the Ochre River bridge to Road 143 North...turn right and go 2kms east on gravel...this will bring you to a farmers lane on the left...turn in, and go onto the lake left of the house....you cannot miss this...the shacks will be noticeable from shore....and likely about 1 mile plus out onto the lake....the map later!!!...Grump ;D

for those who might be coming out from the north end of winnipeg, taking highway 6 and then 68 west across the lake manitoba narrows would likely be quicker....following this weekend, i will post several pics with landmarks to ensure no mixups with directions....includin g getting onto the lake.....i just finished enlarging some maps, but it wont make it any easier....pics will do the trick....Grump

Actually, my kids travel well...the key is to sedate them...no, actually, the key is to get them started young.  Camping in the summer can be a bit of a pain, but it isn't too bad - in the last 3 summers, we've put on probably 20,000 kms with truck and trailer.  It isn't always smooth sailing, but generally not too bad.  Two of the three tend to sleep anyway.

On the map note, check out http://www.gov.mb.ca/tgs/map/map4.pdf.  It doesn't have the smaller roads that Grump mentions, but gives a general idea...south end of the lake.

here's the latest....got out yesterday before the big whiteout and BW kindly towed the Green Machine out beyond the demarcation line around the mouth of the Ochre River..will have Trophyhunter, myself and one hidden guest overnight on friday the 11th....rockbottom has his two big shacks rented out for the same night and saturday....they wont be available until his guests leave saturday...he has at least one other available if anyone intends on coming out the friday...the heat blast from saturday pretty much levelled alot of the snow on the lake....conditions on the old road were pretty good until they filled up with the high winds and light snow...i will update here late week as far as access....anyone with 2wd vehicles or cars, will have no problem parking on shore if needed....we can ferry them out to the shacks...ice is still around 36 inches and should not need extensions..i will post some additional info here tonight...and watch the long range forecast if that counts for anything......later... .Grump ;D

With your directions, Grump, I've now marked a little "x" on Lake Dauphin just north and east of Ochre River, and will be aiming for that spot, weather permitting (I no longer drive on icy roads after I hit the ditch at hwy speeds a couple of Marchs ago on Hwy 6 by Ericsdale). - Puts me in mind of Mountain Mama, but not as bad.

First question...3+ hour drive. Looking like a day trip. Now that we have to fish away from the mouths...How is the fishing. I'm really looking forward to heading up and I'm forcing friends to come. Its going to be a long drive and fish would be nice. I know you guys will be honest in answering. Thriller also is considering the brutal day trip with his little ones....fish would be nice. Although we all know...fishing is fishing...what is here today won't be there tomorrow but some honest insight would really be appeciated. HOWS FISHIN' ????

AC from what Grump and Rod have posted It has been red hot one day and ice cold the next definatly no guarantee on numbers.It aint no lake manitoba ;) ;D But for me the chance at some nice sized walleyes and burbot with a shot at a big pike is enough ;D I plan on being on the ice from friday night to sometime on sunday so hopefully I can find some fish in all that time on the ice :tipup: :tipup:

AC....it can be very humbling.....and for the most part it has....the encouraging thing is the fish have always been around or nearby....they just would not bite!!!!....you could see them just under the ice....sunday i had one of the best hits from a walleye you could imagine....doubled the rod over....crank...off... and the sight of the unmistakeable walleye tail on its way...a brute...the burbot are generally near master size on the lake...some days, the bite is on "just over there"....so you move there.....and then it was near where you were.....or....just abit further out....warm weather will improve the bite....no doubt perseverance will get you fish....but it has to be fun too.....and thats what we intend on doing....having fun...the fish...or any fish will be bonus...Grump :P

I got a bag of zip ties AC...just need to remember to pack them  ;D :o

I just broached the subject with the boss...violin teacher is away this weekend, so our usual Saturday issue is a non-issue.  She is annoyed she hasn't caught a fish since before Thanksgiving weekend, so she's getting pretty intent.  It looks like we will try to have the whole family out...we would not be there as early as AC...hopefully around a similar time (or a bit earlier) than MP and PP.  So, right now, I'd call it a definite probably  :-\

Dont worry guys we will find fish, myself and Trophy will organize a hunting party, we would not want some of you old guys to get too tired early in the day you might miss out on some of the action while you take an old man nap...lol Trophy sounds like you fish like me. If you cant catch here lets try over there, I have not been skunked out there yet and I dont plan on it either. I am sorry I rented out the shacks for friday and saturday They will be available saturday  afternoon till we are done with them on sunday so those of you who planned on using them friday night I appologize. So far trophy called one bunk for saturday night so if you want it be sure to put your name on it...Rod

As the oldest old man, I resemble that remark (as they used to say on MASH), I should be good to about 11 PM, but then I'm sacking out till at least 4 or 5.  I need my beauty rest or my wrinkles get too deep.

I would really like it if someone could bring there flasher, with them. You really have my interests perked on this Ive seen them in all my catalogues but never gave them a second glance. I would like to see how they work, and it sounds like they would work great for my laker trip in april. Not sure how well they work in shallow water like Dauphins though.
Just check with Trophy Hunter........I'm sure he won't leave home without his  ;D
His vex experiences are endless  :bow: :bow:.......I've heard through the grapevine that he is being offered a Vexilar Sponsorship......stay tuned  ;D
Can't wait to see how he uses it for shore fishing  :roflmao: :whistle:
Sorry TH.......having fun at your expense...... :angel
Seriously, I don't think TH needs that vex.......it's just a distraction from the brutal cold winds of Lake Manitoba. 8)
Good Luck to all of you this weekend and may Mother Nature be kind to you all  :)
Tight lines to all and if you want the competition to be close........disconnec t the vex battery  :woot: :woot:
