Dont plan on driving a truck onto the ice till next week.

Bring wheelers. Very good ice though, you should not have

trouble at either spot.

Am talking about right were you get on the ice for the first time right after you leave the resort. I just remember it being step I was also driving a car. I would asume that if I has a problem they would help me out. My wheel house is 8x27 and wheighs in at 5600LB's so I have to be carefull not to get in trouble!!

      thanks for the info, we will wait and see too? not worth it. will walk out if we have too. much more fun getting there the day before. was up two weekends ago and had 16" of ice. they say 20 " at the sight of the tournament. Hopefully the colder weather will help

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?

      Yes.  On the north end.
