Ok heres my question

19 years ago, before i moved here for the 1st time, i stayed at a cabin on burntside. There were alot of them, kind of close together. Had running cold water only. wood stove and a screen in porch that was the kitchen part. No bathrooms, had to walk down the trail for toilets and showers. They served sticky buns. The women i met was super nice, and came to check on me, i was 4 months preggos, and everyone was out in the bwca, and a bad storm came through there.

It wasnt much to stay there for 2 days..

this is all i can remember about the place and would like to go back there

any info on the name?

if its still owned by the same people

If it's Camp Van Vac, it is owned by the same family.

Buel and Winny Tubbs would have been there at that time (I think)

Their daughter Nancy currently runs it.

Do any of these names ring a bell????

      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?

      Went by yesterday. Just a pile of steel sheeting and ashes. Sad.
