I have never trusted the narrows. When I ice fish this lake, I will go to the north landing to drive out onto that east side of the lake and if I fish the west side, I go out of the Westwood landing. That has always seemed to be the safest way to travel on the two sides of this lake. I have seen open water by the narrows in the middle of the winter.

Be safe and use the other landings.

I was out there a few weeks ago and there was plenty of ice. 20" at least where I was drilling and I was fishing the narrows. Nothing there so we moved onward. You will see a trail of where the trucks cross the narrows. It will be on the left side, but then again I have seen people drive right over the narrows and also on the right side.

I would for no money drive my vechile through the narrows at any time of the winter ice season. Way to many times have I seen ice solid one day and a few later the geese were swimming in that same spot.

Yes, it is a dangerous spot.

I'm heading out there for the first time today myself (for winter fishing), great info guys! Any heads up on where they're biting? I usually head to Duck for the consistant bite but with no electronics and a hand auger it makes it pretty hard to drill, check and move. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

The "mouth" into Baker's Bay just E of Squirrel's Nest Point is a good area to look as is the area out in front of Grassy Island.

Good luck.

doughnut with no electronics you might be ok to go back to the county park they are getting sunnies and it is shallow, should be easier without flasher in that shallow water

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
