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

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
