Just saw something about a small fire, couple acres, up near trout lake...   Anybody got more info?

I heard a second hand report, too, and looked into it. There’s a 1-2 acre fire just NE of the east end of Vermilion. They call in the Rice Lake fire. It’s in the Trout Lake section of the BWCA but not close to Trout. The incident report sounds like they’ll get it under control, but these fires are hard to predict. There are quite a few fires going in the Arrowhead now. Some like Greenwood SE of Ely are getting big… 19,000 acres. I think that the smoke we smelled yesterday when we had the SE wind.
We need rain and we need snow this winter or things could get a lot worse.
Be careful out there folks.

The Lake Vermilion cabin owners Facebook page has some good information, plus interesting video from areas by Isabella where the fire went through. Sad to watch!!

For those interested there is a site AirNow.gov that shows air quality by Zip Code. Google Air Quality Map and tap AirNow link - enter zip code. For me, green ok, yellow limit outside, orange and a above stay in.

The air quality around Vermilion is quite poor right now.

      I have a power washer that runs for a few minutes and then stalls out.  Can't restart it for hours.  The shop said it was a carb and so I replaced that and it still happens.  I thought it may be a problem with the vent in the gas tank but left the cap loose and it still happened. 
       
      Any ideas?
       
      Thanks for your time.

      There have not been a ton of fishing reports. What are you all up to right now?
       
      With this nice weather, I am hoping to take at least one more trip up to the lake in early November. Then I can do my end-of-season boat maintenance and then get snowmobiles prepped for the winter.
       
      Are people out hunting right now, taking hikes, making soup, burying nuts for winter....???

      Anyone getting any over the air TV station with a small antenna? I am not asking about any specific area but curious in an area from Vermilion, Ely, Isabella and the Shore areas.

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...

      i think Leech is using his wife as a an excuse not to actually live out in the sticks in fear of meeting up with bigfoot!!!!!!!!!!🤣🤣🤭
