For Browns there is a access off of shorline dr in wayzata near the marina(GPS Cords, N 44degrees 57.674 / W 93degrees 33.501) - and for crystal bay I personaly haven't fished it much but if you get a local map and just drive the roads around the bay you will find a access! Good luck and let us know how you do out there...

How about Phelps? Do I take the Spring Park Access?

I am pretty sure there is a "road" from the Spring Park access going to the community cluster in Phelps. If you go that way you may notice a winter access on the north side of Phelps too, but I don't know how to tell you how to get there via street.

Yeah I remember driving out from the north side of Phelps a couple years ago, but can't remember exactly where. Thanks.

Coming west on Hwy 15 turn left at the BP Gas station(Wilshire) road forks stay left (Tuxedo Rd). Take Tuxedo to Clyde left turn and you'll see the access. The community holes are jammed with shelters so I would recommend doing a little searching on your own. There are crappies to be caught away from the crowd as Perchjerker can confirm. Ice is plenty solid but no real roads have been plowed this year. SNow just wasn't depp enough to bother with it I guess.

Mark nailed it.

A crew of us drove out 2 weeks ago and people were driving way before that - especially on Phelps. Phelps is packed, Goose Island is packed to. It's OK - crappies and walters are everywhere. Get away from the crowd and don't be afraid to try shallow - er weedlines:)

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
