I tried it. The ice is good. The fishing wasn't. There were about a million holes drilled out there. I think that area has been hammered due to the poor travel out to the flats. I'd go to Rocky Reef on the south end if you want somewhere close and a couple fish here and there good luck.

Do you meant Betker flat? yes it has been hit hard this year and it is never very good i spent too much time on it past years due to lack of tranportation at thin ice periods. there is good ice ther but i tried it in Dec. and got one eye. i would go someplace else.

I have been out there twice this year and only two pout put on ice. I agree, lots of fishing pressure and very few fish being caught. I usually have much better luck. Only a few slush pockets out to the flat.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
