its where washington crossed to fight the british. I've been ice fishing and seen cannonballs on the lake bottom with my camera. I even pulled up a musket once. Been about 4 posts for indy trying to get info on the ice (posted a week ago too) no one seems to be talking. Might have to make the 20 minute drive this weekend sometime and take a look. Calvinist, i know you dont need a permit as soon as you can park on the ice. I do not think you need one now either. (this year only cars with boat trailers had to pay to park) Also there is another access point on the other side too.

      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
