When I first saw the picture I was thinking Black Creek- ding. ding. ding. We have a winner.
Years ago we hiked in off of 24 and found a consistent 6 or 7 feet and not a mark on our locators. I have to believe that there is winter kill most years up there.
I will probably never drill another hole in Black Lake.
I like reading the current reports and a huge thank you to all that share good information. I will share info thru Private Messages but not so much on the big old internet. Unfortunately with the lack of snow and the Covid-19 running around I have been staying away from the cabin for the most part. Hopefully in the later part of February I can start making more regular visits and start the search for Crappies and Whitefish.
Good Luck - Stay Well
There are unicorns and golden walleye awaiting any fisherman brave enough to get there!
I sledded to Black Lake two weeks ago via the creek. There wasn't a ton of snow for going over land and there were definitely areas of thin ice. I had to skip across an open spot as well but made it into Black Lake. There I found areas with real bad slush, so I kept my throttle pinched and did a big loop and got out of there.
Most important for you StateOfHockey, is that you were riding with buddies that could help get you out.
so any updates??? on slush, snow amounts on the lakes. headed back up somewhere around the 29th. mainly concerned about smaller lakes. would make life much easier for this old fat guy if i could drive my truck out. 🤣
Ok so I'm not a Deephaven resident so I can't even get a pass to park there. In other words, there is no public parking someone with a trailer at that access then.
Guess I won't consider that a an option or real public access if there's no parking.
