Does anyone know how to contact Kip's Camp on Dead Lake? I can't find anything on them on the internet.

Sorry, I have not been there. It's off the tar a few hundred yards so you'd have to drive in there to see it. I fish on Dead sometimes, but not on the north part where Kimp's Kamp is, so I haven't seen it from the lake side either for a while.

We used to go there every Labor Day for 6-8 years. Kip was a great guy. About 7 years ago some of his family took over and we lost out Labor Day spots. We were a large family group that reserved 4-5 cabins a year. Left a bitter taste because we had standing reservations. We received a call a couple of weeks before Labor Day and were told we no longer had the spots, they were going to do something else with the cabins. On such short notice we were unable to find anything else that year. Not very fancy and it needed lots of work but it was a good place to fish. Would I recommend it? Probably not.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
