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.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
