There is a channel between Big and Little North Star. It is on the North East side of the lake. Before you get to Potato Creek on the right side if you are coming from the landing. I went through it with a canoe years ago. I don't know how deep it is.

Be careful in the winter. This area has moving water and the ice is not safe in the channel. Follow the snowmobile track over the land and you will be fine.

Hi Hockey

Your right about Big Lake being a nice town to live in. I would rather be in Marcell or the Grand Rapids area. I grew up there and want to go back. I have to stay down here for the money.

Never heard of Buford.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
