Ditto that. Next week he's talking about another one of my favorite places. Yikes!

BTW, he left out Sand Point Lake.

I don't really care if they turn the place into Chacago Land or 612ville in July. The word is out already. The resorts take care of that at the boat shows during the winter months. Come September VNP returns to BWCA like camping and fishing, with one exception - I get to use the big boat with all the creature comforts.

Jeeze and I thought Kab was my own little secret lake...guess the word is out now. I better get used to seeing other boats on the water for a change.

Being from "up north"....I didn't see the clip...but when I talked to the park ranger at Crane this spring,He mentioned to me the traffic and usage wasn't as great as other years and his spin on it was the higher cost of gas for traveling cut the usage down...he might just have a point there..people may be vacationing closer to home...I've been going up to Sand Point since 71'... not going to stop until my body says otherwise shocked.gif...lot of memories on that body of water grin.gif...simply beautiful country

Looks the same as any other lake to me, just less houses on one side.

I beg to differ. This chain of lakes looks more like a canadian fly in lake than a brainerd area lake. I'll take prestine wilderness over crowded overpopulated area any day. The only similarity is thier is water in both.

I wouldnt know about Brainerd area lakes, thats way too far south for me. I was refering to the lakes in the general area.

Perhaps one needs to slow down to see the difference. Everything probably looks a little blurry when you are going 50MPH

Don't bring your jet ski...illegal. Bring your fly swatter and bug dope as well as sunscreen. Minnows, leeches as well as crawlers. GPS is nice but have your navigator look at it and you just drive. Leave your fire wood at home as you MUST buy from a CERTIFIED dealer...KEEP YOUR RECIEPT! Just a few Ideas for you.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
