Things to do and see in Waskish area? Trails?

11 posts in this topic

Going to be camping at Rogers over the Memorial Day weekend, looking for some things
to do with the wife in between fishing or on
big wind days when we get blown off the lake (not worried about rainy days - thats tent
time smile.gif ).

Any ideas on interesting places
to see, any trails to hike? Was out to the URL website, they mentioned the proposed Big Bog state park, any trails developed yet? Any good birdwatching spots?

Any ideas would be appreciated. Looks like the fishing is picking up, getting pumped!!

Blackjack, excellent question for this section. I'd like to come up that way too sometimes but get the old "what's there to do up there besides fishing?" from the wife.

Any antique stores? Museums?

The only other thing is to let her off north of the lake and have her walk through the swamp all the way to Baudette.

That'll take a while.

Guess by all of these type replies you get the message. Best she likes to fish.!!

Oh, Anderson Fabrics in Blackduck used to offer tours of their facility...very interesting place.

BLACKJACK,
Check out the Shopping in Waskish Topic.
When you say rainy days are "tent days" that mean we should all come visit? smile.gif
If you ride ATV's there are a lot of places to ride.
For hiking 3 miles south of Waskish and just NE of the #72 and County 110 junction is high ground with a lot of small roads/trails to walk.
Check out the eagle nest across from Dad's driveway. The other day I thought I saw one of the little ones head as it was being fed but I am not sure.
If NINETOE is up it's fun to stop by his place about 8-9 in the morning and make a lot of noise. You'll get to hear a lot moaning and groaning if you can get him to start to wake up. grin.gif

Thanks for the replies guys. Kelly, I decided we're camping in a different spot because I'm counting on some 'rain' time!!! smile.gif Jiggle, thats an idea, but we're not the party animals that we used to be. Now I knew that I could get her drunk and horny, it would be an idea, but I'm afraid she'd just go to sleep on me.

Boat is hitched up, as soon as I get thru this little thing called work, we're on the road. I'm psyched! Crappie heaven, here we come!

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
