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.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
