Hinsdale Island Camping

5 posts in this topic

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?

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
