Check out wilderness warmth out of cove. Great roads to get you out a ways, wheel houses can be pulled out with vehicles. Talk to jay,amber or Brandon for some advice.

People driving out of appledorns. Spent the night out there, alot a trucks on ice. I was about two miles straight out of appledorns sunset bay resort. Nice roads and about 12" of ice. Lot of 1/2 ton trucks where I was fishing. Plows were going further out when I left. As always check with resorts before you go out with vechile.

Are they driving out of garrison sports yet? I want to get the house out next weekend but I saw how close to shore the pressure ridge is this year and want to wait until they get the bridge out. How much ice is out of garrison right now?

Would double check on Wilderness Warmth and Cove. Jay said ice was NOT good with flooding as of a few days ago. They are not pulling yet. A guy died off the point last year (maybe year before) so double check. Jay does keep up nice roads on the weekends but they often are not plowed during the week.

judging from last weekend, there is a chance in you know what that you'll be driving out of garrison sports. I went out of there last weekend and it's pretty crappy ice. the ice is actually o.k. but it's all slush on top. I went with the wheeler and couldn't get any farther than garrison reef.

Drove off of Wilderness Warmth last Thursday. They were pulling all the big houses out and plowing roads all day. I'm not sure how far out we went, but it was at least 1 mile.

      Thanks Kunzi, that's is exactly the type of feedback I am looking for.  I didn't now Batteries + carried them now.  I was in there a year or two ago and they said they had stopped carrying them due to quality issues.  They must have worked those out.  Please post what brand/model you bought and how your test goes.    Thanks!

      Lol! Its KILLING me that the ice has been late for 2 years in a row. Wish we could go back to 2014, I was ice fishing the weekend before thanksgiving.

      Love my munchkin. I have mine set up as a spear shack.    One thing i do I do wish is that it pulled better with my snowmobile. Works great behind the wheeler but if I need to use the snowmobile I have major issues. Need to have studs added to make it work in the future.
