Dec 15, 2018 Ice Conditions

Our Winter Lake Access remains closed due to unsafe ice conditions pertaining to the crack North of Gull Rock traveling East and West!
With the high today at 40 degrees – no sign of healing that crack! Could possibly be 2 weeks before we open our access! We will keep you posted.
Our access information line is 218-442-6661 – call between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. only please!
We do have our Day houses out and some of our Sleepers fishing in the save areas, still 3 sleepers to go by Wed.

Thank-you,

Ice Condition Update

Checked ice again today! Crack North of Gull Rock, traveling to the East and West, has areas less than 2 inches of ice! This crack was over 5 feet wide at one point. Our winter lake access will remain CLOSED to the public! We will not open until this area has gained enough thickness!

All Day house and Sleeper reservations are Good to go! We are fishing in areas that are NOT near the crack! This closed access is to keep those that fish in their own fish houses and are traveling the lake on their own, safe from the unsafe ice created by this crack!
So this safety measure does not change your Sleeper or Day house reservation because we will transport you! So please note- none of our Day house or Sleeper guests will be allowed to drive their vehicles to their Sleeper or Dayhouse!
Thank-you!

Winter Lake Access Update Sunday 12/9/2018

We remain close due to unsafe conditions with the crack on the North side of Gull Rock running East and West.  It continues to open and close, never know from one day to the next.  Just today she was closed and by afternoon she was 3 feet wide again.  The temps we have is still making ice however we need colder temps for this crack to heal.

With it only being the 9th of December we have good cold days in the future that will heal the crack and make for safe conditions, but for now we just have to wait it out.   Gives you time to get your Christmas shopping done!!

We will continue to update you as changed come about.

Happy Holidays Everyone!!

Construction started today!

Shower house/Fish cleaning house construction started today! Builders from Brainerd, Mn arrived today!
We will share the progress! Unfortunately we are not going to be able to use it this winter but we plan to get it up and insulated and then work on the interior over the winter! Try to complete by Spring!
