Best place to get to the flats

4 posts in this topic

I am headed up later this week and would like to get to the flats. I am taking my son along so I do not want to take any risks.

Guess I am wondering where is the best place to put in to get there? I will be on sled.

Any help would be appreciated.

Keith,

The ice seems to be a bit thicker the further east you go. We were up last weekend and watched a small group heading out to the mud out of myr-mar, but I would suggest going out of the red door. The ice is inconsistent, but you should be fine on a sled.

Yes, ice out on Mille Lacs is definitely inconsistent... If you are thinking about driving, then just forget about it... If you have a snowmobile, then go for it...

Mille Lacs ice has cracked before in the past...

Im not saying this to scare you or be an a---- but when you leave the shore there is always "risk" involved.Remember the old saying,"Ice is never safe"Hope you have a good day catching and not just fishing!c63 grin.gif

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
