Good question...my wife and my opinions differ. So I guess I 'll tell you what the wife wants as she always gets her way.

#1 (to her) outdoor pool

#2 Somewhat private

#3 Other campers who love to fish and are ready to throw afew

back afterwards.

#4 Dock access

#5 Bathroom and shower room would be nice. We have one in our

camper, it (bathroom) is small, I am not.

You should check out Little Winnie Resort, it's not on da String but is a short drive away to the lake as well as many other good lakes in the area. They have an outdoor heated pool, dock access to Little Winnie/Miss River, and will be plenty of people around to throw a few back/[PoorWordUsage] after dark.

I have looked at Little Winnie looks good. I actually fish Winnie more than Bowstring just checking my options out. Looking very seriously at Highbanks Resort also...seem like great people. Whatever we decide it will be great to be in God's Country!

Hey Jake, I had not heard that Rocky Shores had new owners? For what it is worth the next resort down the lake, Bowstring Shores has new owners as of last Thursday.

Another resort that fits your "wants" could be Cedar Point on NorthStar lake. Good people, Good location.

Thanks Jake, have thought about it several times but the continued tightening of zoning ordinances and tightening of legal docking issues make it a tough venture. Our expansion of 10 new cabins last year ate up most of our allowable density. Now we play the waiting game to try and acquire adjoining land. We shall see......maybe some time soon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
