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.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
