Maiden Rock - Lake Access

14 posts in this topic

When accessing the lake from Maiden Rock, what are the ice conditions like? Is a person able to travel around with a wheel house?

Any information would be great. If there's someone I can call, that's fine too.

Thinking of going that direction tomorrow instead of Mille Lacs...

Hay guys

I was thinking about going down in the morning too but my gps decided to take a [PoorWordUsage] on me so I am going a little blind. I have no one else to go with so I was wondering if I could tag along?

Let me know

Hey, thanks for the information.

Forgive me for asking but is Trailor Point Park on the MN or WI side and if it's on the WI side, is it north or south of Maiden Rock?

trailorpark point is on the mn side just on the north side of lakecity, theres a public launch just upstreem of the point, if you look at a map of lakecity google earth or somthing u'll see it plain as day its the large point off the north end of town with trailors all along the shore, i heard a report of a few eyes/saugers being iced there, were planning on being there b4 sunrise and spending most of the morning there, after noon we might explore some of the backwaters around wabasha, anybody's welcome to join us just look for a silver merc sable

Thanks dude. If you see 2 trucks pulling wheel houses driving around looking for decent ice to park on, that's us.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.
