Lake Access Points

3 posts in this topic

How many access points are there to drive out onto URL? Does anyone know of a map online that I could see that shows them???

I'm just wondering about being able to go mobile if the fish are not under the sleeper I am renting. Once I get out on the lake, is it fairly easy to get around form one area to another? Is there usually a good plowed road network to move around? For example, say I am in a sleeper on the north section of fishable waters. I find out that the bite is hot in the southern areas. Will I be able to drive from north to south on the lake, or will I need to return to my access point, drive south, and pay again to get on the lake??

I know that pressure cracks can be a real pain in the neck, and if there is enough snow, where unplowed, the drifts will make vehicle travel impossible. What is the norm when going mobile on URL to find fish?

There must be at least 8 access points, but now there is 8-10 inches of snow on the lake making it tough to be very mobile. There should be good roads plowed, but I don't know that I would go to far off them. Bring a tow strap and a shovel!!

Cross country travel will be almost impossible for a while. To go from North to South side you'd definitely want to use the blacktop for safety reasons. Kelly gave some good advice a few years ago. Have a shovel for each person in the vehicle plus a pointed dirt shovel for when the drifts are frozen and packed underneath. tongue.gif Stan C.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
