John Prine song...

Wondering if anyone knows if there is access to Little Comfort? Back in my (pre)teens before the area was built up

I remember floating in inner tubes catching sunnies, From what I can see from hi-way 8, I'd say those days are gone, anyways I wanted to pop some holes and see what it was like, I can always go to the other side, but I remember it as being alot tougher and not as good(i.e fun), anybody got a little more recent memory of the lake(s)

hulkster,

I'm not entirely sure this is legal, but I have observed people parking on a side street just off of Hwy. 8 and walking the ditch to the lake. You would have to cut through the cattails, which is also not the world's greatest idea. If you find a "rat run" in there, you're going to get wet.

I doubt you're going to find any better fish in there than you would find in Big Comfort.

There is no accesse to the lake unless you know someone. As Ray said I have parked on a side street and walk along Hwy 8 to the lake. I have never got a ticket but thats not to say you would not I'm just not sure about that. Any way it is a long walk and tough walk but can be done. I only go for last ice so all I need is a some poles and a bucket to sit on.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
