Camping/Open Water Day Trips, Alternative to Rogers

4 posts in this topic

I see from the Rogers site that they are going to only support their seasonal occupants for launching, etc. moving forward. I've grown partial to the south end at times during the early open water season and liked using Jerry's place. Does anyone have recommended alternatives, I've viewed this site's resort list for Red, but would like to hear others opinions for overnight stays, day trips, etc. this open water season. Thx!

Mort's is just west of Roger's. Goggle "Mort's Dock"

Morts has an excellent concrete ramp and a newer campground, Rogers was kind of out dated as far a electical and sewer hook ups, there showers were old and dirty and Morts are new. JR\\\'s and the other new place on No Name lane are both talking about puting in boat ramps. Rogers ramp will be missed but if you had a newer boat like mine with a high windshield getting under thier bridge most days was a problem.

Looking at the PRIM map it shows public access close to the resevation line, has anyone used that one?

The public access near the res line is an old one that is overgrown with brush and weeds. You need a jeep or an atv to get there and no way can you launch a boat bigger than a very small duck boat.

West Wind has a new RV campground with a protected habor, boat slips on new aluminun floating docks and boat launch into the harbor. They have on the water gasoline for your boat also.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
