Resorts that have roads out on lakes?

Recommended Posts

We have never been to the area, but would like to go up to Ottertail, or some of the other lakes around there, but are unsure of how to get on other than a public access. Anyone know of safe roads onto the ice? We are looking for crappies, eyes, perch, or sunnies. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Not that I know.There is basicly no snow so that won't be a problem I would just talk to a bait store for Ice conditions, Ben's bait is a good one in Battle lake Or just watch were other people are going back an forth on the lakes If you are looking for OT go by a map and you will see the the access on the map and from what I know of there is only one public access you can't use because of the river and ever time I have been by there is open water.just watch were other people are going.

You said there was almost no snow on Ottertail.So do that mean nobody is using their sleds on the lake to get to and from their houses? I'm just wondering how hard that would be on the machines if people were? The reason I'm asking is that most people I know can't afford both 4 wheelers and snowmobiles.

There is some snow on the lakes, it's drifted up with the high winds we've had lately. I'd say sleds can definitely be used, but there is still a lot of bare ice. So, take it for what it's worth.

Supposed to get some more snow in the forecast, 1-2", but it's going to blow around again.

Thanks for the 411. I'm planning to be up there this weekend. I'll be going out between Pleasure park and the public access.

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      We all can use this SHOP to buy the covers. I think it's the best offer.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
