N2B,
You have two type camping facilities. The water based sites in the park(Voyageurs National Park) which are spread out from the West end of Kab all the way in to Namakan and beyond, or private or state owned campgrounds that you csan drive to.

The state owned sites are managed by the DNR and they do not have electric or water per site available. I think the website is www.minnesotadnr.com, one is Woodenfrog on Kab and the other is Ash River on the trail.

Good luck, guts <{{{{{><

Don't even think Ash River Campground. It should be a rest area only. BAD!!!!Unless you look into resort tent camping, either camp on an island SO COOL!!!! or plan on Woodenfrog Campground. No showers, but hey you're camping and there is lots of water around, but the sites are quite nice, great views, boat launch, can leave at nite on beach, NO GOOD WOOD, bring from home for any good type fire, great Rangers for answering ?'s, . We were there in late May, so write me if you have any nore ????

Make sure you stop at Gateway Store. They really do have everything you might need and they will give you best advice. If fishing, a quide even for 1/2 day sure pays off the first time. Wade Watson sure was great and we went from very few fish to super catches after his expert advice. And we consider ourselves fair to middling other places.

HAVE FUN Wendy

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
