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.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
