lucky, i'd say you shouldn't have any problems as long as you don't go blazing off the beaten path. drove the truck down to the ice off of maple there but wasn't going to get much further on sun morning. there were a few sleds out on clapps and the snow was pretty well crusted over.

No road on the lake. About 10" of snow and 2" of sludge on top of the ice.

Just an update, there is a road plowed from the north dnr landing to the island. There was one spot on the road with 10-12 inches of standing water but the ice is holding up well at about 2ft or so. The crappies and sunnies were biting well on Ratsos and Shrimpos in 15-16 feet.

That plowed road must have melted some and recieved run off from the rest of the melting.

We were there yesterday and that road is as slick as can be...seems like it would be really scary driving on that and breaking through as you went? Someone drove on it for about 20 yards and got off as soon as they could!

People are driving all over the lake, there are some mushy spots and they will be getting mushier with the warmer weather and direct sunshine.

There are a couple of heaves that really put a hitch in your undies when you go over them! I no likie!

Still alot of ice, but I think that the accesses will deteriorate quickly for vehicle travel with a little warm weather....ATV travel will keep you fishing for awhile.

Lots of people out there yesterday. We got some sunnies and a few crappies....biggest sunnie 10 inches....biggest crappie, a 13 inch white....only one of each the rest of the fish were hand sized, or smaller. Plenty of little ones and lots of little perch.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
