We are open to all traffic this weekend.
Couple of reminders:
1.) Spread out with your wheelhouses. When they are too close, it will cause massive drifting, flooding and make it impossible for others to fish that spot later.
2.) If you have a plow and want to plow yourself a spot right off our road, that is fine! But please don’t plow a long trail off our road. This again causes a lot of drifting (especially this weekend with the storm coming).
3.) We will have a guard shack for road passes and maps out on the ice this weekend. This will help you get out on the ice more quickly and decrease congestion in the bar.
The hours of the guard shack:
Friday 1/17: 1pm-10pm
Saturday 1/18: 6am-Noon
If you come Friday morning or Saturday afternoon, please stop in the bar for your road pass and map.
4.) Snowstorm is coming! We will NOT be plowing until the wind dies down so please plan accordingly! If you need to be off the ice at a certain time, do it before the weather prevents you from leaving. We will not be able to help you off the ice until the wind dies down.
5.) And finally, please obey the 10mph speed limit and clean up after yourself when you’re on the lake. Leave it better than you found it!
Thanks and we will see you this weekend
Roads are currently closed due to snow and wind. We will get them back open for the weekend and the UPS Ice Fishing Tournament that will happen on Saturday the 9th. Also, the Pond Hockey Game is canceled – HOWEVER – all the players are still going to come and hang out in the heated tent, giving autographs and participating in a meet and greet.
Roads are open to wheelhouses and full size pickup trucks for this weekend! Many of our original roads have been rerouted so be sure to stop in the bar for a map. See you soon!
We have closed the center road. If you are on interior roads you can come in on either north road or 3 mile road. If you are on mud you can use the road between blue jug and no name . Or drive down past 9 mile and midget that will take you to 3 mile road. If you have any questions give us a call. All other roads are still open just center road is closed. 320-676-3227.
Due to the high winds causing damage to the ice roads, our roads will be closed for the remainder of the evening. The winds are supposed to calm down tomorrow and we will go out and check everything in the morning. If you are out on the flats today we have guys out there directing you off if you aren’t staying over night. If you are on an interior road, hang out for the night or call us to come off.
Wheel houses and trucks are a go this weekend. Early ice is often changing so before you go on and off the ice, make sure you check in with us – either call 320-676-3227 or message us on Facebook. We have bridges on the lake so make sure you stop at the bar for info. Road is open to mud for vehicles and wheel houses.
Please GO SLOW! 10mhp – both for the safety of others and to help preserve our roads!
ICE REPORT: Wednesday – January 17th, 2018
We have all the roads plowed and opened up after the blowing snow on Monday. We are seeing some big walleyes these last few days. We aren’t seeing the numbers but some really healthy fat 25” plus fish. We have been seeing some success in shallower water on the rocks.

We are pulling customers skid houses out and you can drive to your house. We are not able to use the north road so PLEASE STAY OFF THE NORTH ROAD. Houses won’t be pulled to Flamingo or Pollock yet. We’re also able to allow 1/2 ton trucks and wheel houses out at this time. Make sure you are driving slow – 10 mph or less. We are not able to get to the mud with vehicle traffic yet. Stop at the bar for our map.

We have still been finding spots of 8” of ice in a few areas. We are proceeding with caution due to some of the thinner spots. We are able to pull skid houses out for our customers with wheelers and sleds. We are pulling skid houses to most areas except for flamingo, pollock, and north 2 mile at this time. We are not open to vehicle traffic. We will be checking again in the morning and I will then give you an update.
