Camping/Open Water Day Trips, Alternative to Rogers

Recommended Posts

SGT

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!

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.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
