I am thinking about coming up from the cities with a buddy this weekend. Is it possible to drive out to the flats yet??? Is there a specific resort that might have the best road and access??? Any help on this is greatly appreciated. New to Ice Fishing Mille Lacs....but I want to try the 7 and 8 mile this winter. Thanks!

Hunters Point has a road staked out to the south end of the boot.

I would call Nitti's if you are talking about taking a car or truck on the ice. I think it is still ATV and sled traffic only.

Hunters website talks about them getting their road out to the flats today, not confirming if they will be allowing vehicle traffic out there yet or not.

Has anyone been driving out to the flats yet? Any fishing reports? I'm heading up to brave the cold this weekend and wonder if I should bring extra bait, or extra beer.

I know hunters was alowing vehicles out to the flats. I heard now that the road is closed due to flooding, but should re open with the cold temps coming. I have been out to the flats 5 times this year. I have yet to catch a walleye out there. I have tried all my "sweet spots" and no luck. They bite is pretty rough everywhere though. A lot of small perch (the size of a fathead minow) in the lake right now. We had a bunch of them swimming up our holes. Good luck. Let us know how you do.

Fished out of Hunters on Tuesday and took a 4 wheeler to the mud. Wanted to fish the South Needle of Center Bar but never made it there. Followed the staked road all the way to the Boot then about 75yds after that we hit a slush pocket that was about 30 feet wide and got the wheeler stuck. Got it unstuck and away we went, went over Greg's flat and about 75yds past that was another slush pocket. Stopped before we got to that one and decided to fish the south tip of Greg's flat. Fished from 2pm till 6pm and did not get one bite. My buddy had his camera down there and counted 25 walleyes in the 4 hours. They would rush in like they were gonna smack it and then just stare for 10 seconds and swim away. The fish were there but just didn't want to eat. My advice is to take a snowmobile if possible so you can fly over the slush pockets. The slush was over my boot and was not very fun.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
