Ditto that. Next week he's talking about another one of my favorite places. Yikes!

BTW, he left out Sand Point Lake.

I don't really care if they turn the place into Chacago Land or 612ville in July. The word is out already. The resorts take care of that at the boat shows during the winter months. Come September VNP returns to BWCA like camping and fishing, with one exception - I get to use the big boat with all the creature comforts.

Jeeze and I thought Kab was my own little secret lake...guess the word is out now. I better get used to seeing other boats on the water for a change.

Being from "up north"....I didn't see the clip...but when I talked to the park ranger at Crane this spring,He mentioned to me the traffic and usage wasn't as great as other years and his spin on it was the higher cost of gas for traveling cut the usage down...he might just have a point there..people may be vacationing closer to home...I've been going up to Sand Point since 71'... not going to stop until my body says otherwise shocked.gif...lot of memories on that body of water grin.gif...simply beautiful country

Looks the same as any other lake to me, just less houses on one side.

I beg to differ. This chain of lakes looks more like a canadian fly in lake than a brainerd area lake. I'll take prestine wilderness over crowded overpopulated area any day. The only similarity is thier is water in both.

I wouldnt know about Brainerd area lakes, thats way too far south for me. I was refering to the lakes in the general area.

Perhaps one needs to slow down to see the difference. Everything probably looks a little blurry when you are going 50MPH

Don't bring your jet ski...illegal. Bring your fly swatter and bug dope as well as sunscreen. Minnows, leeches as well as crawlers. GPS is nice but have your navigator look at it and you just drive. Leave your fire wood at home as you MUST buy from a CERTIFIED dealer...KEEP YOUR RECIEPT! Just a few Ideas for you.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      thats a good priority

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
