Help me plan a trip

Recommended Posts

I've got a buddy coming in from Chicago, and I want to take him for a quick fishing/camping trip. The goal is to put in one afternoon, drift/paddle and fish, camp, and then meet our wifes and friends the next morning at Taylors Falls for a booze-cruise-swim excursion. The second half of this trip (Booze cruise) we have done before. We know where to rent the boats and such. My question is, in the interest of timing, where do you think I should either put-in or rent a boat ( I own a big heavy flat bottom tank of a canoe), camp and such to make the first leg of the trip fun and productive. Or is that leg of the river just north of the falls not worth the effort? Never having seen the falls, is it a portage? Is it rough?

Thanks in advance........

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
