I was just curious if any has camped on this island before. I guess I dont haveissues with camping on it but I was wondering if there is a boat dock or something to protect my boat from rocks/shoreline and etc? Does anyone have any kind of information on this? Thanks for any help.

Camped there numerous times, but only in a few spots...Those places didn't have a boat dock but I remember one in particular was nicely protected from the wind. Its a really nice place to camp hope this helps some, if you have any more specifics I'm sure either me or someone else can answer.

I know a couple sites on the east end of the island have small sand spots you can pull a boat up on to. The last one I camped on was in sort of a bay on the island and there was a site on either end of the bay. both looked like nice spots

Thanks for the info. Does every site have its own little sand beach/protected bay? I've only seen the island while going around it and never actually been on the island. Are sites far from each other? Will one site fit 2 - 4 man tents?

      Seems to be flooding out.  I have pulled the plug after trying to restart and its wet, so yes flooding out.

      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things.

      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.
