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.

      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.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
