What do you have for transportation? Sled or wheeler? If you dont have either you will be at the mercy of the resort for getting around on the lake past any plowed roads. Thats not so bad anyway your there to enjoy yourself so let them do the driving and put you on the fish. If you have your own transportation you can follow the state snowmobile trail (the black sticks) all the way to garden and Oak...Super Easy!

Easy to find when the weather is clear, but make sure you carry a GPS just in case it snows or fogs up. Sleds are the best mode to get out there.

In addition to the GPS I would certainly travel with another and not by yourself. Your post indicated "I" which is singular. Good Luck and hang on. Bill

killit....If you don't wanna haul your sled up Adrians resort will take you up to North side of Big Traverse via track vehicle and set you up in a day hut for a mere 75 beans. Pretty darn reasonable price for sure. That price would also include your bait and the ride back too!

You are right on Fisky. We do it out of Riverbend, let them do the driving. They stay out on the ice all day with us and its a lot of fun for sure. After a few years we've gotten to know the guides, they will swing by the house come in sit down and [PoorWordUsage] and fish for awhile. It don't get much better than that. Bill

I am going with the original poster (killit) 1 sled 1 wheeler will both work? or is it sled only? Any other information would be helpful. We are feeling a bit adventourous therefore would prefer to travel with portables etc. Garden Island or Oak? I have heard that it seems even on slow days fishing is pretty good,and what about these huge jumbo's I've heard about up in the NW angle?

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
