Nice Places to see?

14 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I am heading up to the lakes in a few weeks with some family and friends. I have been fishing the lakes for years but never spent much time site seeing.

I was hoping someone could give me some pointers on scenic locations on kab/nam/sand pt/little vermil etc. I want to show my family a good time and enjoy the scenery of the park.

Thanks

Watch out for the Dock Spiders though! This one ran over my bare foot, scared the bejeebers out of me, among other things. e8624321.jpgooo.gif

Got to the end of Lost Bay on Kab and take a hike on the Eks trail. You might be able to find some lake blueberrys.

Just got back Sat. & with the weather as it is you should stop by a wonderful beach in Little Vermilion. It's a mile or two into the lake. The beach faces North with a large rocky point to the left. There are two small camp sites there. Pure sand & shady for much of the day. Just beach your boat & wade in.

In addition the above mentioned, take a trip to Namakan Narrows and look at the Petroglyphs on the rock walls.

Lit. Ver. - as soon as you get thru the King Williams Narrows (going N.) make a hard right & after a 1/4 mi or so make another hard right. You're then in L.V. Say hello to the fellow hanging from a tree on an island there.

Hangman's Island. Like bigtimber said, it's on your way into Little Vermilion. When going pass Hangman's Island though, keep right. There is a large reef in the middle there so stay closer to hang man's island and stay right for about 100 yards pass the island and then it's ok to go back to the middle again.

Also, as you get into King Williams narrows, heading North, you'll boat next to a large rock wall on your right (just before you get to the cabins on the East side of the narrows). In that rock wall nature created a person's face in the wall. It's a large face too, it covers the entire height of the wall. I had always thought it was just something that myself and my family had noticed until I recently saw a map that had it labeled as "Face in the Rock." Whenever I go up there with new people and point it out they all see it and are amazed. If you're not looking for it you don't see it. Kind of like seeing shapes in the clouds.

      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.
