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?

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
