My wife and I spent yesterday walking around in Maplewood State Park....looks like we picked the last nice day for awhile. It looked like we missed the prime color time by a week or so...but it beats working smirk.gif I thought I would just share a few pics.

We camped there for a musky fishing adventure Sep. 21-25 and it was absolutely beautiful in there. So much color and we definitely hit the prime while we there. A very nice park!

Any luck? I use to fish Beers all the time....the last couple of years I have only "moved" a couple of skis....starting to wonder if there are any left in that lake confused.gif

Thanks for the pics. I just don't get down there as much since I moved from Pelican to DL. Seemed like eveery time you go in, you can find something to gawk at.

Sadly we fished on Big Detroit, Pelican Lake, Melissa, and Sallie. We didn't even know Beers had muskies in it until we got home...but it'll be on the radar next time we're up there.

A bunch of us were up in Maplewood for a 'work' weekend, what a beautiful day. We ended up going in for a dip a couple times on Saturday to cool off!

A buddy and I were able to get out on South Lida on Friday and really nailed some ginormous crappies (and nice walter and slimer too).

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
