Directions to Summer Homes Access?

Recommended Posts

gerty

Could someone be so helpful to post directions to what they call the "summer homes" access. Directions or coordinates or both would be great. We'll be coming from the Bemidji area. Thanks.

There are summer homes on different parts of the lake. North of Richards Townsite, the highbanks area, Plughat. Could you be more specific as to what part of the lake?

Boatfixer - sorry for being so vague. I think they are telling us the southwest corner of the lake. Does that give more meaning?

I believe that the public access you are refering to is the one right where the Mississippi comes into the southwest side of the lake. (There are some summer homes right by the access)

It is off of Trappers Road which is the first road south of McArdles resort.

You can take Hwy 2 east out of Bemidji through Cass lake to Hwy 91 or "West Winnie Road"(about 16 miles past Cass lake). Take a left on Hwy 91 and go about 6 miles to Trappers Road and go right. (If you get to McArdles Resort you have gone too far)

Hope this helps!

Bruceye - I belive that's it. Trappers Road rings a bell. Just can't remember those things like I used to!! We'll be up there on Saturday and Sunday morning trying to find a few.

I didnt know there was an access there. I thought the richards townsite landing was the closest one to the mouth of the river.

Yea it is sort of hidden away but it is there.

I don't think it is utilized much in the summertime but it is used regularly in the winter.

It is not much of an access as far as launching boats I don't believe.

Richards Townsite access is the only public access with concrete ramps and ample parking for bigger boats on that end of the lake.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
