In the paper the dnr said yes you can still have camp fires. But I would ask a fire warden in your area to make sure.

Would that be an attended fire or unattended one?

Don't walk away for even a few minutes...

If your heading up by us the answer would be no fires even contained. They are saying to be careful with camp stoves. Its a red flag around here almost daily and as you probably know the Gunflint Trail has a huge fire going.

Check with the DNR in the area your going to.

In nw wisconsin,there is a fire ban. No camp fires, no outdoor grilling, no outdoor smoking, no atvs, no chain saws. With a hefty fine if caught doing so. Atleast that was from the last 2 weekends I have been up there, dont know if they lifted it yet, but with the temps we are having I dont think they did?

Depends on where you will be. In the area described below you can't even burn charcoal for grilling.

Additional Burning Restrictions Imposed (2007-05-06)

Further burning restrictions from the Department of Natural Resources will go in place for Cook, Lake and that portion of St. Louis county north of County Rd 16 on Monday, May 7 at 8:00 am.

Under these more restrictive restrictions the following are prohibited: No burning permits will be issued except for special exceptions issued by State or Federal agencies having suppression responsibilities.

Recreational fires are not allowed, except gas and propane fired camp stoves, grills or similar devices. No charcoal permitted.

No welding, acetylene torches or other devices with open flame allowed in forested areas except under special permits.

Use of fireworks and explosives in municipalities will be under control of municipalities.

Smoking outdoors is permitted. PLEASE USE CAUTION!

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
