Shore Lunch?

10 posts in this topic

So my friend had a good idea about having a shore lunch on one of the island on the lake. Is it legal to do that? I am not sure because of how dry it is up there. Is there a special island were we can do that at? If so, could someone tell which island it is. Thanks for the help everyone. Sorry so many questions, but I want to be as prepared as I possibly can!

Aces,

There is a place right in your bay, it's SW of where you are staying. It's on the South shore of the bay, look for a large rock and it will have a small boat dock in front of it. There is a picknic bench on top with an area for cooking. Remember however that it has been very dry and there maybe a no fire posting, so check before going.

ACes - there is a ban on ANY open fires...includung charcoal grills. Shore lunch is awesome, but you may have to go back to the cabin and fry them up in the kitchen...

Yes there is a fire ban but camp stoves using white gas or propane are still legal.

Looks like there are 2 different opinions on this. I will be safe and contact the DNR about this. Thanks everyone for the info though!

Here is the information straight from the DNR website "Additional restrictions are being enforced in Cook, Lake and St Louis County. In these three counties, NO burning permits will be issued and NO recreational fires are allowed. Only gas and propane camp stoves, grills or similar devices are allowed. NO charcoal permitted."

Rules are rules. However, I think most of us would agree that we should all do as much as possible to avoid starting an outdoor fire. Fires can start very easily in these conditions...hot grease spill out of a frying pan, a discarded match or lighter that falls on the ground, etc...

If you're thinking of having any kind of flame outside, it ain't worth it. Why take a chance on being the next schmuck like the guy who started the Ham Lake fire.

That's just my humble opinion.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
