I donít know if I will get any response but hopefully. I have an ice castle I want to bring to lower whitefish, trout, or cross lake. Does anybody have an ice report and if these lakes are safe for a wheelhouse. Never ice fished the area and canít find many bait shops to contact. Thanks.

You could try calling the Holiday gas station in Cross Lake.

I have not been up on those lakes, but there is a solid 18" on most of the lakes in the Brainerd area, like Gull and North Long. I've heard that Big Trout can have some sketchy ice because of the late freezing because of it's depth so I don't think I'd advise going out there, especially if you've never been there. I think you'd be fine on Lower Whitefish. Not sure about Cross, but the Pine River does flow through there, and right by the public access next to the dam.

Out of curiosity, why are you thinking of these lakes since you've never ice fished there before?

There's also a decent amount of snow on the lakes too. Not sure how easy it is to get around if you aren't on a plowed or packed down road.

Walnut18,
Lower Whitefish is hard to access in the winter time. I would try the northwest side of Upper Whitefish. Search Killworry Resort, they have a plowed road out to some good structure and there is plenty of ice out there. They just have a box outside to pay $2 for road access. The plowed road isn't the greatest by any means but will get you out there on some fish. Just a FYI, we had a group of ice castles out there a few weeks ago and there was 16" of ice. Some houses did well.

I know it's a little south but I was on edward lake for trout opener 2 weekends ago and I pulled my 21ft house with my 4 door long box diesel with a wheeler in back and there was plenty of ice. I went off the resort access on the west side.
