I'll be headed up on the 9th for my first ice fishing excursion on Winnie. I've fished it a lot in the summer but never been in the winter. HIGHBANKS...I'm headed your way when I get there. I've been reading about your roads but I have a question. I'm bringing my retractable wheel shack up and if I want you to plow a road out for me in a certain spot off the main roads, is that possible? Or, do you just plow out some dead ends for people here and there? Is off road travel possible or no?

Kais24,

Kim will probably chime in here, but I can tell you, if you talk to rick I'm sure he or I can make you a nice little nesting spot off a road and out of the way.

cross country travel is possible. but some areas have deeper drifts than others.

this wind may have helped out ability to travel, but if you break through the crust now, you might be screwed.

Rick broke through hard crusted snow with the big plow truck this morning and we nearly tore the hitch off the red truck getting it out.

my advice is to make tracks first with out the hard house behind you.

then if all goes well, pack those tracks down a little and then if you are brave enough, hook back up and give her [PoorWordUsage].

either that or have one of us plow a nice little path for you.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
