It is probably ok to walk all the way across, but why? It would be a lot easier to park on the Wisconsin side. I'm sure someone here could give you street names for directions to get to the Wisonsin access. I can get there but I don't know the street names and landmarks. It is pretty easy. One steep hill, but no problem unless there is a lot of snow. Turk could help you. Good luck!

Turk

I don't know the street name, but if you turn west on the street just south of the Tom Thumb store (off of 35)and drive four or five blocks until a T then take a right(norht) and the city park is six or seven blocks, and has an area to park up on the bluff, some people park on the ice naturally when it's thicker ice.

good luck here's a quick report:
1/08/02 St. Croix River ice on the Bayport section is 8” to 9” think in many areas. The sauger and crappie bite has been fair with most fish coming on 1/16th ounce silver and gold jigs with smaller fathead minnows. Jigging lures such as the Nils Masters have also been effective on sauger and a though less numbers walleye as well. Best depths have been around 24 and 28 feet.

Keep Catchin'

It depends on the day. I like to get out there before first light int he morning. There is less noise on teh ice that time of the day. I have done well in the afternoon too.

      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.
