I brought my sleeper out of Adrians. They had no problem with me using their road. They might want a season pss out of you. If the price is reasonable I think they deserve it. It's when they get out of line that gets me mad. It was two years ago and I think they got 10 bucks from me for the weekend. It probably has gone up by now. Good Luck

P.s. Also Morris point is an option, I did really well in early ice 22 ft last year.

Hey der minndonn, most charge 5 bucks a day to access, or that's what it has been for a while now anyhow. As for best place, iffin your talking best fishing/catching that would change loctaion-wise thru the ice season.

Curious when you say 'not always felt welcome'? Hit them with their fee and it should be all good? We love tourists up this way! Some operators that run off of Adrian's road may get a bit touchy with the trails they plow off of main track to their set-ups, but it is public on the ice. Just don't set up on a trail eh!!!

Morris point resort would be a really good spot to consider early season, last year 'twas 5 bucks a day, week long road pass for 30. Speak with Al maybe if you wanna get off the main road a bit, I'm sure he'd work something out and good ol jason could plow you a trail maybe. Good folks there.

I'm gonna bump up a retro FM piece I did here a few years back with some "Things to do on the big pond", take a peek a that post for a bit more to stew.

Enjoy the winter season, happy holidays.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
