Wade-

I have heard that it appears the ban will be relaxed today. It sounds like campfires at campsites in rings may be allowed along with charcoal.

Here is what I found on the relaxed restrictions.

For St. Louis, Lake and Cook counties, no burning permits shall be issued, however, permits for special exceptions may be issued by the state or federal agency having suppression responsibilities (including prescribed burns).

In addition, recreational fires or campfires are only allowed in a designated fire receptacle designated for such use and associated with a residence, dwelling, campground, or resort. The USFS will be restricting the use of campfires in the BWCAW and other remote campsites until further notice.

I could not find anything on what exactly the park is going to do regarding remote campsites, but it appears like the Superior will not allow campfires on remote sites. (yet)

I called voyagers park and she said you can have camp fires and use charcoal grille only in camp sites that have fire rings. Atleast its better than nothing

That would be everything then. You are only allowed to camp at designated campsites in the Park, and every designated camp site includes a fire ring. So basically that tells me that ever site is good to go. I guess the only thing that would rule out is pulling up on shore somewhere for a shore lunch, but just cruise back to camp and your good to go. I'll be up there too this weekend, but I'm going into Little Eva via the Namakan river. Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources said that the Candian side has lifted the fire restrictions, so I am one happy camper, pun intended! We'll be staying at my brother's cabin on Crane Thursday night and then heading over to customs Friday a.m. So if any of you hear some hooting and hollering coming from East bay tomorrow night, I apologize in advance. smile.gif

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
