Looks like a SE wind tomorrow morning - with rain :(

BLACKJACK

Was just out to the National Weather service website and it looks like a SE wind tomorrow until about 4 PM, then swinging around to the north. I'm pumped to get out but I don't like bowhunting in the rain, not that I can't wear my camo rainsuit but I hate the idea of getting a shot and then having the rain wash away the blood trail. But it sure would be fun to be butchering a deer on Sunday during Sid time!!! To be a bow hunter you have to be an eternal optimist as in 'this is the time they'll walk by my stand'!!!

Good luck all!!!

I hear ya BlackJack. I will likely be in one of my pre-setup ground blinds if its raining. Would be pretty sweet to take one opening weekend. This is only my second year but last year I could have had a chance to get one if I would have been patient and waited on stand longer. Dang mosquitoes were biting the heck out of me - even with the repellent. So I jumped two deer and stopped a doe and her fawns in their tracks on the walk back to the truck. : P

A south wind would be the worst for my favorite stand.

I'll probably have to use a pop up blind instead.

Chuck34 I think the thermacell works the best in a blind.

It kept them out earlier this year for me when the kids and I camped out.

Of course there are 10 times more mosquitoes now.

It's a terrible wind for our opening day spots, but one of the stands they can come from almost anywhere, so that's where I'll be. Hunting out of permanents in big oaks, if it doesn't rain real hard, you stay pretty dry in those.

      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?

      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.

      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.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
