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?

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
