It's not misinformation. Every year we fish way out of Thomas rd. once the ice firms up good. Not too awfully many years ago there was damn near a freeway going out and guys were taking their pickups right out there. I am sure that on the really good ice years you probably could navigate a safe route out to the same area from Linwood by mid season, but it'd be quite a little bit longer trip.

Small 2 track that leads down into the froze over marsh parking area. I have a 4X4 but have never had to use it there but it can get bumpy

The parking is pretty good out there, just take Thomas all the way to the end, it will curve around through a few houses and right out to the bay. There is a good bit of parking on land inside the cattails, but often when we get great ice some will park on the ice as well when it is super full back there. Once my tire gets here and I get going again, I will be out there quite a bit. If you ever want to venture out and want to travel out with someone I would gladly show you what I could. I am a little behind the curve on getting fish so far this year though, just to warn ya, lol.
