Any idea's about the deer hunting forecast up there this fall?

Sorry if I'm in the wrong section just wondering about water levels up past red lake up in the swamps (big bog area)? Thanks, cool.gif

Over the past 2-3 years I know Ive seen 2 fawns with just about every doe, so Im guessing it should be good. That is ofcourse if Kelly P's scouting and tracking skills are up to par this year! grin.gif Ill be up on fri morning.

Good Luck.....

I am back home from my deer hunting trip "up north!" My son and me had a blast. I got my doe, and my sonn saw more deer from his stand than anyother hunter. No shots fired but he had the time of his life. We shot 4 deer (3 bucks and a doe), the only doe we saw by the way. We passed up (rrr) or uh messed up on 2 more bucks and passed on a spike buck. There were 6 hunters in camp this year and a couple of buddies came along just for the ride,(Party). It was good to see them.

My youngest cousin with shot 2 of the bucks and 1 was a really nice 8 pointer and I think he went ahead and had it mounted.

pics soon, cool.gif

Congrads!! It sounds like you did better then 90% of the groups around Waskish. The worst I've heard of is one group that has hunted here for over 50 years and never saw a deer this year. frown.gif It is looking like the rut is just starting here now or never happened.

Hello Kelly P.

Well I was standing in the West Wind lodge talking with a nice gal behind the bar, she was from St. Cloud originally. (sorry i forgot her name). But any who... I was wandering if you'd come stolling in. I never have enough time to really enjoy myself and see everyone I want to. To much to do, and really enjoyed myself while there.

Have a great season. Mikinaak aka Paul cool.gif

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      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!
