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:)

      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.
