My friend and i went out there before sunrise sunday morning and found most of our holes had 7-8 inches of good clear ice. We did not go to far but made it on the otherside of the hump out from the access into about 9-18 feet and the ice was very consistent. Although last year in the middle near the north end there was an open spot for quite some time so i wouldnt trust that area to much.. We did make it out with no trouble on the south side out from the access. There were 3 or 4 permenant houses out when we got there and when we left there was 1 or 2 more along with about 8 other portables. No fish were caught all 4 hours we were there though just a few bites at sunrise.

Later,

Ryan

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com
