So I'm coming up in a couple of weeks for the Subaru Winter Festival and our cabin is right on Eagle Lake. Last year, there was a ton of snow on the lake and it meant standing in like 6" of water on the ice. I'm curious to how to lake condition is looking this winter so far.

I sent you a PM. You can use the Polaris Ride Command App to see general idea of the trails. Its not 100% accurate but its close. You can also go on www.snoeagles.org to look at the map from the snowmobile club.
Thank you gentlemen for your timely responses. Many years ago I was fishing south twin and a guy put his truck through trying to drive over from North. I was guessing it would be unsafe, but every body of water is different. Do the snowmobile trash connect the lakes? I really want to hit multiple lakes in one day, but don't want to trailer everywhere (if possible).
I know someone that sunk a sled going in the "channel" between Eagle and S.R. They are luckyto be alive. Dont try it.
RiverRat Absolutely NOT. Our place is in the channel between Catfish and Cranberry and I can say if you want to do that you better be one hell of a water skipper on your sled. Do not travel between any lakes via the channel. Maybe Scattering Rice to Eagle but even that I would not advise.
Obviously no ice is safe ice, but If I get on the chain on scattering rice via snowmobile, is it possible to travel to cranberry, catfish and eagle safely on the ice in a normal winter? Are there marked trails to follow from lake to lake?

The bottom was just starting to turn over. Limited out on walleyes. Good eating fish...

Good luck fall Muskie hunters....there were plenty of you trying, but no success that I saw that day. Good luck everyone.
Thank you in advance for any help. My father, brother and myself are planning a trip to Eagle River for a fall musky trip. Typically we stay in St. Germain and pull in and out everyday on different lakes each day.
This year we wanted to try something different. It has been many many years since any of us have fished the chain but it seems like a better body of water to spend a long weekend on and fish for musky. We have found one cabin to rent, on Duck Lake.
First, is this the correct end of the chain to fish for musky, and if not, what area should we target. I do not need a specific lake or a spot, we can handle fishing and figuring that out. With such a large body of water, and only a couple days, we don't want to waste time driving to the other half of the chain after not catching anything on the first half.
Also, if the Northern lakes are the wrong lakes, or even if they are the correct lakes, does anyone know of a place to stay on the chain where we can keep the boat in the water for a couple days? We are headed up there from Milwaukee on 10/30-11/3.
Again, thanks for any help and I will be sure to post a report when we return.
Thanks and happy fishing to all!
