    Good call Jason its a long way out there plus you don't get to start at south rolly in the winter. Wait till you can ride out with someone that has an extra sled if you don't have your own. Good luck!

    Although Redshirt Lake was at one time, good pike fishing, it sucks now. When I lived at Big Lake, I would snowmachine to the lake frequently (from Big Lake). The fishing was always slow, and I only managed one good pike. The best spots were near the east side creeks, and in between the two north end islands. Trapper lake is much better pike fishing. I'll never waste gas money on redshirt again, I'd rather head north and fish for Lakers and Burbot, instead of wasting time around these suburb of Anchorage and Wasilla armpits.

    i usually walk in once or twice every winter,.. trail is normally easy walking although it is a solid 8 or 9 miles. fishing 4 years ago was great but now the last couple years you really have to work for them. my biggest was 33'' and i also caught a 10 lb burbot one day
