you would need to secure an easment. You can be landlocked, if the land owner wont let you on his land it would be trespassing.

Check with the county records, there may already be an old easement to the property.

You can force to get an easement, called the cartway law. I think it's done through the township.

They will either use an existing road that makes sense or use a section line. It is basically decided by the township board after they hear arguments from both parties and their lawyers if needed.

My parents had this happen to them. They always allowed a 10 foot easement to a property owner to get to his cabin but then that guy sold the property to a developer who needed a 30' foot easement to subdivide. Of course my parents weren't thrilled about an easement and had a very small, non-intrusive road crossing their property for this person already. The development meant that it became a rather large road with lots of traffic. Needless to say, my parents really felt like their rights as property owners were not even considered and this guy sells his lots, makes the cash, and walks away. My parents land was changed forever. They ended up selling and moving from the land. It was really too bad.

My point is that property owners see this stuff as potentially happening and may fight you on an easement through their property. I know I would after seeing what can happen.

Landlocked property has to begiven access and the county has a process for it. They try to follow lines but will take a different route if a line is not feasible. Surprisingly adding an new road may actually enhance your property as it makes it subdividable. The person wanting the road will have to pay to build it but the possible incease in you value may reduce what you can collect for the road.

I looked at a lakeshore lot a few years back that was landlocked, was told by the real estate agency it would not be a problem, as mentioned above.

"Landlocked property has to begiven access"..this is true. The problem becomes court costs, legal fees and easement costs associated with adjacent land onwers that do not want to grant you access cheapley.

Did you purchase the lakeshore lot? I am curious to find out if you were granted access across land some how. I have been told that if there is a public access to the lake that provides "reasonable access and enjoyment of the land." I see a lot of water access lakeshore lots for sale up here. I know of one on Burntside Lake that is bordered by the BWCAW and that water access is the only option to that parcel.

You need to go see an attorney. One that is located in county where the lot is located. Dirt law is more complicated than a bad divorce. In the past I've looked into purchasing landlocked land and there was no guarantee of an easement being granted. The reason I was interested was the price of the land. There is a reason why these parcels are so cheap. A real estate agent might tell you that an easement will be no problem, but have him/her deliver the easement when the deal closes. I don't think you will get that commitment.

A easy way to tell where you stand in obtaining an easement would be to contact the property owner and see how they feel about it. Then you know.

Real Estate agents are nothing more than sales people and some are only interested in closing the sale. Pretty much say what is needed to get the sale done.

Generally there are four ways to get access to landlocked property.

1. Just drive over the ajacent property.

2. Being given permission by the property owner(s)of the land you are crossing.

3. Private easement.

4. Cartway.

Some pros and cons.

1. Pros - No cost and maybe they don't care.

1. Cons - Tresspassing, not perminent, can be stopped.

2. Pros - No cost, easy, quick.

2. Cons - Not perminent, can be revoked. Problems when landowner sell or someone else takes control.

3. Pros - Perminent, you and landowner decide the route, private easement meaning it can be dedicated to just you.

3. Cons - Must pay what the land owner wants, you must maintain,

4. Pros - Township may at sometime take over maintenance.

4. Cons - Very expensive, township ditctates the route, you must maintain, PO'd landowners, anyone can use it.

Don't hire a lawyer just yet. Do you have a plat drawing? if not you can get one from the county. I just about bet there is an easement already worked into the plat. What county is this land in email me at lovemygoldens75 at yahoo dot com with the description of the parcel and location. I would be willing to do a little research for ya.

I do know of a landowner that purchased 40 acres with no access. We had an agreement with him that if he followed our rules he could drive accross our land.

Today he has no access as he refused to follow the rules set forth on day one.

      This is a darn good practice!

      When I left there last Thursday, I had my boat as high as it would go on the boatlift. When boats would go by too close it would rock a little bit, so I tied the 4 cleats to the lift.  I might have to pull the darn thing off and park it around the corner at the neighbors dock while I'm there. With my rocky shoreline, I can't leave it tied to mine, it gets the crap beat out of it from boat waves. I'll have to pull it when I head home....that means removing the canopy on the lift, what a bummer. Who would of thought this could happen when the water was so low this spring!!!

      On the FB page, people are reporting more than 5" of rain from today's storm.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw the rain forecast and then zip-tied all of my dock pallets to the steel dock. Of course, I only do one side so that if the waves start popping the pallets up, they will just lift and fall back down instead of floating the entire dock up and down.

      Nice fish! Any rain total updates so far? Getting a bit nervous about our dock boards

      On the south end...   The walleyes are biting!  A great week of fishing with a combination of jigging and pulling spinners the go to methods.     Most walleye fishing is taking place between 21 - 24' of water.  When you locate fish on your electronics, either anchor up and jig or simply drift with spinners and crawlers (or troll if there is no wind) through the schools.   When jigging, gold combined with a bright color such as glow white, pink, orange or chartreuse is a hard combo to beat.  Use a fathead minnow, rainbow or a frozen emerald shiner.     When hooking the minnow, it is helpful to hook the minnow through the mouth and out the gills, pushing the minnow all the way up the hook to the jig head.  Re-hook the minnow as far back as possible.  This will catch the short biting fish.    Use a two ounce bottom bouncer with a two or three hook snelled spinner and a nightcrawler.  Some good blade colors are gold or gold combined with gold, orange, glow red or pink.   As happens most years in June, another good walleye bite fired up in various areas of the south shore in 5 - 10 feet of water.  Oftentimes, minnows spawning pulls in hungry walleyes creating some excellent fishing.     Some big walleyes over 30 inches being caught, along with the eaters, smalls and slot fish between 19.5 - 28 inches that must be released.   Anglers can keep a combined limit of 6 walleyes and saugers.  Up to 4 can be walleyes.  All walleyes 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28 inches may be kept. On the Rainy River...  The river is flowing with a strong current.  Consequently, fish are being found in areas just out of the current.     Jigging with a minnow is effective when you are on fish.  Otherwise, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits along shoreline breaks against the current in 6 - 12' of water is producing a mixed bag of walleyes, saugers, pike, smallmouth bass and an occasional crappie.   The Lake Sturgeon season opens July 1st.     The river is a great summer option with 42 miles of navigable river and many nice boat ramps.   Up at the NW Angle...  The fish are snapping up at the Angle.  Another great week of fishing amongst the 14,552 islands in these parts.     Minnesota waters are producing nice walleyes. Some fish being found off of deeper structure.  Some nice opportunities are shallow based on forage, hatches, minnows spawning, etc. Pulling spinners with shiners or crawlers has been effective.  When you are on "a spot on a spot", jigging is the best technique.     Trolling crankbaits is working well and is a nice way to cover water and put your lure in front of a lot of fish.     In addition to walleyes, saugers, pike, jumbo perch, crappies, pike and smallmouth bass are also in the mix.   Muskie anglers caught some nice fish this past week.  No specific pattern as the cold spring has fish still settling into summer.  The lake boasts a healthy population of fish, many in excess of 50 inches.

      I'm catching them on bobbers and leeches.  Try fishing smaller side bays on the edge of some rocks but not in the rocks.  Fish in about 6 - 10 feet of water.  The bite starts about 7:30 pm till 9:00 pm.  I also noticed a few may flys hatching in the areas I'm getting success.  I think they're coming into the bays in the evening to feed on the mayflies.

      Generally I agree with your assessment Gimruis. Nobody likes a nanny state, but the harsh reality is that without rules and regulations far too many people take advantage of limited natural resources. There are those that will never follow the rules regardless, as well as those that don't recognize that as more people catch more fish, we all need to keep less.   I've eaten a few SM in my life, and they taste just as good as a walleye or northern. However, I would bet that 80% or closer to 90% of all people catching SM practice catch-and-release. Therefore I am not sure what a slot is going to do in this specific situation. Maybe the DNR has some good theories but I doubt the main culprit is the number of large SM being kept for food. I assume that it is a contributing factor but not the main one.
