One More about the access points

In relation to each other, and in relation to Waskish, where are these three roads? Can you get from one to another?

Hillmans Rd

Nistler's lake access road

West Wind

Nistler\'s lake access road also none as the Sunny Beach access is more towards the south side of the lake, I have used it several time it is not too bad, I don’t think they have a bridge over the pressure ridge any more but there is a good bridge just a little further south. Their road almost ties in with west winds road, at least you can see their houses, last week they had a road marked all the way to the north shore pressure ridge, I think Hillmans road was on the other side, we could not find a way across so I am not sure. The fishing out of Nistler\'s lake access road was OK, we did catch a few crappies but nothing like at Hillmans.

Be careful of the banks that get plowed up along side the main roads. The wieght of these banks often floods the ice around them and makes for some nasty slush on each side. They look harmless but stuck in slush is no way to spend the day.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
