Was up to Red last thursday thru saturday morning, 6 guys landed 8 crappies. We went out of Hillmans about 3.5 miles. I was wondering where people have been having luck lately? Which access and how far out?

I am also looking for the current scoop, are all accesses still open to truck traffic? Heading up in the morning. Thanks.

It is a day to day battle depending on weather, traffic, and even pressures. The ice is doing what the ice does in spring. It melts a little then refreezes then shifts around and melts some more, so on and so forth. The ice on the main currently is safe and stable, although the shoreline can get ugly quick. What normaly happens is the first hundred yard will get all kinds of wet and messy then once past that it is smooth sailing. ATVS and sleds are normally the best option. Also call ahead to the access you are using if you are unsure.

      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?
