Hunter Windfields or other resorts policy on driving out

5 posts in this topic

I have a Dodge dakota and never been to Mille Lacs ice fishing before. What is the policy on resorts letting there guests drive out? Is there such thing is as an all clear for all vehicles or do they make exceptions for smaller vehicles besides full size trucks. Or is there a in between period where they suggest you not to, but still let you, ect. How does this work or do different resorts work this differently? confused.gif

From what I know, it seems that all resorts gradually move from walking out, to like it is now, ATV/Sled traffic only. I don't think they mess with, "this weight can now drive out and that weight can now drive out" it seems they just say that "vehicles" are now allowed. But you should ALWAYS call first before trying.

I did run into some resorts on the south end last year that said they were open to vehicles, but when i got there they said they were only letting small vehicles like cars out. I have a f150 crew cab, and they would not let me out even though there was 12 - 14" of ice everywhere i checked. I ended up talking one resort into letting me out the next day after i checked the ice myself, but I do understand they are better off safe than sorry, cause a vehicle going thru the ice probably isn't too good for business. I never checked with Hunter winfields, so i don't know what their policy was at the time.

The bay has at least 14" of ice on it - we are letting all vehicles out on the ice. Our road fee is $10 per vehicle - hope to see you!

Harry, I was up there a couple of weeks ago. How far out are your roads going now? Can you get out of the bay with a vehicle yet?

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
