Plug Hat is right down the road from there. There is a bait shop/liquor store right next door to your lodging too!

The Gosh Dam Place is the coolest name ever!!! I wanted to stop there and eat when I was up there a couple weeks ago but it was BEYOND packed!!!

But yeah, if you go down county 9 and take the high banks resort road, it goes to a public access also, I believe it's called big birch picnic area. Not 100% sure on the name, but it is birch something.

plughat is a great landing but with the low water last fall it was even difficult if you go up 46 there is a mosmo landing that also is good if the water is real low

Tamarack Lodge is about 3 miles from Gosh Dam down hwy 9. Brand new launch last fall. Worth the $10 for a secure place to park your rig. Free doughnuts and Coffee on Opening morning.

birches is nice access, but you have to watch the winds a bit as it is so exposed.

I like to launch at mccavity bay or the launch at the state campground. I just can not wait to get out there and try some spring slab fishing.

I have never fished crappies up there. Is it very crowded on weekends there? I may have to jump in the boat this weekend and close my eyes and imagine soft water fishing.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
