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.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
