When I was looking for a campground a couple of years ago, there was a small camping area on 108 between North and South Lida. It's down the road from Maple Beach and before the tunnel and boat ramp on South Lida. I believe the name of the people that owned the place was Hansen's. Cliffy might know as he lives near the area. confused.gif

You may be thinking of Jerry Swanson. The have a little campground and they love doing the party/camp fire thing with their guests. Very cool couple.

Yup, the Swanson's (Jerry and Cindy...if I remember correctly) have that little campground...family friends with my parents...very nice couple. I drive by the place everytime I go and visit my parents...they always have the campfire going...seems like everyone is having a good time.

I'm not positive but I think Crosspoint hosted a bass tourney quite a few years ago (let us take-off/weigh in there )but I thought it was on North Lida am I wrong ??? The resort I'm thinking of was an established one and had links to it on Ottertail Country (Contact Us Please) but no longer...maybe it went the way of many resorts as of lately frown.gif

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
