Grey Cloud Island ancient stone structure???

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what that ancient-looking crumbling stone tower thing with the multiple arched doors was? It looks like a peice of history but I can't tell what it was. It almost looks like the corner of a castle or some sort of armory. It must be 75'x75' and 100' tall. Its in the backyward of a red house.

I was half tempted to look up the phone number of the folks who own the property and ask them about it. I am intrigued by old structures like this.

Thanks for the feedback - I always suspected it was a kiln of some kind but had no real clue. Mystery solved.

There used to be signs there telling you what it is. Have they been removed?

I think so - I was there last weekend (first time) and I saw the stack but no signs. Granted I wasn't looking too hard and the weeds are getting tall, so maybe it was covered? It's in someone's backyard now.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
