I know it gets a little thinner up by fishermans. I wouldn't recommend vehicle traffic much south of the high banks. I've seen 4 wheelers coming from fishermans, but not vehicles.

Was out there today and a few days last week. Ice is good all over as I drove on from Fisherman's Inn and went off at Pondy. There was 12 inches at Fish, 14 at High Banks, and 12-14 at Pondy. There were about 6 full size pickups I seen drive on at Fish and go towards Pondy so it's safe.

That lake is ever changing, so it is never safe. Still always use caution and don't assume that you can go anywhere you want with any size vehicle you want.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
