Rick,
I was approached by a Voyageurs National Park enforcement ranger who said when visiting this site he notes there are frequent questions regarding rules or regs in the Park that he would be happy to answer.

He wondered if there is a way this site could link to VNP, or if you would be looking for a moderator regarding Voyageurs National Park as it relates to Kabetogama, Namakan, Sand Point, Rainy Lake, the inland lakes and camping there within..
Thanks guts < ))))))><

Guts,

I think that is a great idea too.

Checked out your post about the tipup fishing on Moose Bay, keep talking like that and I'll be up there before you know it.

What else do you hear about Pike fishing on Kab., never know, might be passing thru next month.

Has your snow conditions changed, supposed to storm tonite the way is sounds.

Later,
Mike

Mike, the storm has not materialized yet, we did get a trace of snow, but its blowing good, and they suggest we may get some snow later today or later in the week.

Pike fishing on Kab is not real solid, anglers fishing for walleyes/saugers are getting Pike action, otherwise Kab/Nam or Namakan is now the best and will probably remain so throughout the season. A nice fact is Northern Pike is a continious season in Namakan, if the ice holds out its a nice option for late season/early season fishing.
Bring on the snow, guts, <{{{{{{><

guts,
I know you posed this to Rick, but as some one who boatcamps in VNP fairly regularily (@ 23 3-5 day trips on Kab/Nam the last 7 years) I think it would be great to have a park ranger help out. I am planning on a couple of 4 day trips into the east end of Rainy this year, new territory for me. Having another link to info would be great.
Just wanted to also say thanks for all that you post here, helps alot of guys out smile.gif

RICK,
I'll try to make contact with him this week and have him e-mail you with details or etc.
It could add a new demension to the page when people have National Park questions, knowing that the question is being answered by an authority rather than heresay.
Thanks Rick

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
