mtnmn or kris201, I haven't ever ice fished Island. Do you walk in and if so from which side do you? Are you going in from the Cobbet lake entrance?

Don't think my knee would hold up since I had surgery on it but I might give it a try.

Thanks Kris. Might give it a try, but now we have a lot of snow coming in this weekend.

Sounds like Island is good to go. These guys were there last week and I know it's been really cold in Junction this last week. I'm headed up there tomorrow...
