I'm not sure about the road to 8 mile, but I believe their access fee is $8.

I had Nittis (hunter's point) put my house out two days ago. I spoke with George, he does not have a road leading out to 8-mile yet. But I got the impression from another gentleman, I believe his name is Dan, that it is safe to drive out to 8-mile from there.

Drove out to Seguchie Flat Monday without any problems. Used the access at Terry's and they have the road plowed out to the bridge but after that you are on your own. The ice looked good, there is patches of snow and bare ice. When I drilled holes the ice was a good 16-18". With the cold weather we've had this week it should be close to 24". As far as a fishing report my arrival was a little tardy, didn't really get set up until 4PM. Caught 3 'eyes between then and 5:30 (which was everything I saw on the vex). Since I was in a hurry my setup wasn't the best, it was on the slope of the flat. Ten feet either way probably would have made a difference. Plan on being up there again starting tomorrow. Will most likely be where I was or on 8-Mile. This is the most promising the pond has looked in several years.

Went out of Hunters Point on Sat. afternoon, good road to the flats and beyond. Pulled a retractable wheel house and was charged $35 for a three day pass, was out less than 24 hours but the minimum is $35. Not much snow on the ice, next time will chain up all four wheels if need be and pay the access fee out of any other resort on the lake, regardless of distance.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft

      Landowners can generate revenue by allowing public hunting on their private land in 46 Minnesota counties through the Department of Natural Resources Walk-In Access Program. Sign-ups are Monday, Jan. 22, to Friday, April 27.  “This program is a win-win for landowners and hunters,” said Scott Roemhildt, DNR Walk-In Access coordinator. “And what’s more, by signing up for three years, landowners can qualify for habitat enhancement on their Walk-In Access acres.” For Walk-In Access, eligible parcels must be at least 40 acres and covered by high quality natural vegetation. Landowners are paid by the acre to allow hunting access from Sept. 1 to May 31. Bonuses are paid on parcels that enroll in a three-year contract, are more than 140 acres and are located near a state wildlife management area or federal waterfowl production area. “This may be an opportune time for landowners to sign up for this program because there is some uncertainty about how it will be funded in the 2018 Farm Bill,” Roemhildt said. In a change this year, landowners who enroll in a three-year contract also may qualify for up to $20,000 in habitat enhancements on their land for prescribed burning, removing invasive trees and brush, or planting native species. Walk-In Access parcels are for public hunting only and no motorized vehicles are allowed on conservation land. Bright yellow-green signs identify area boundaries and parking is along roads or in designated parking areas. Recreational use laws provide extra liability protection for acres enrolled in Walk-In Access. Walk-In Access began in 2011 and has grown to more than 26,700 acres in 2017. The program is currently funded through 2018 with a three-year grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under number 69-3A75-16-509. Other funding comes through a surcharge on nonresident hunting licenses, a one-time appropriation from the Minnesota Legislature in 2012 and donations from hunters. Landowners should contact their local soil and water conservation district office for enrollment information. Details can be found at mndnr.gov/walkin. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Yea, the guys having issues with the k-drill/fuel combo are not claring out their ice shavings enough. I have had 0 issues with binding or overheating.  Have been drilling through ice that comes up to the foam the last three days.

      Possibly coming up in the next upcoming weekends. Is there any good areas this year that’s producing a decent bit I’ve heard it’s been pretty slow so far? I know last year there was a good crappie bite in halverston bay but ended up sticking close to the resort and got a few gills. Looking for eyes and crappies if no real good bite thinking of heading to the southwest and trying the gull area. Thanks

      I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together. Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

      Losing Sue is a great loss to the lake community and all of those that had a chance to interact with her. My young daughter has had to deal with a few close losses in our family this year/winter already, so she will be really sad to find out next spring that her favorite "ice cream lady' is no longer with us as well. Sue and Ron were always part of the experience of coming up north. Like many others I'm sure, my wife got corner by Sue last summer about how we needed to buy Moosebirds! I'll miss seeing Sue's smile each time we walk in the door to pick up some random forgotten item, for ice cream, or to find something "Moosebirds" to take home and support a good friend.

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!
