Turtle Lake Access

5 posts in this topic

Do they lock the gate for the park where the boat ramp is located for Turtle Lake? If they lock the gate, what time do they open?

I have never seen that gate locked. I have fished after dark many times. I do not know if I have been lucky or what?

The lake was low, then the right side wheel dropped in a hole. The water was just to the rims on the rear tires of my truck. I had to put it into 4LO to get it out. It was the weekend after the 4th of July so maybe alot of wash out???

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
