Would like to go to the western BWCA, lac la croix in particular. Looks like a nice adventure. Would like to get a tow further out to get away from it all. Any recommendations? campsites, tow services, good fishing areas, etc.

I would contact Zups Resort. They run the portage and offer tow service up there. Do a search and you should find their web site. You should also be able to get whatever info you need from that site.

Good Luck. That's some nice country you're looking to explore.

la croix is a fun lake been there many time in the past 20 years. the canadian side is all motor and minnesota side is motor from the loon portage to snow bay and then paddle only . zups are a good outfit but it is on the canadian side so you will have to check customs in and out.anderson outfitters also do tows and so does gateway all in crane lake. enough small talk to the heart of the matter la croix has lakers on the west end and lady boot bay ,walleyes start bitting on the east end first and move west as summer gets later, crappies in lady boot.northerns and bass pretty much everyware. i fish mostly the canadian side.iron is a good lake also but can get busy.bottle portage probableing the number one drop for the outfitters .macree is also good walleye, bass,northerns also hit hard and the native can use motors in there but seldom do. there are also steam trout lakes off ao la croix which are fun also. the big stretch of la croix(from cambels to indian narrows) can get choppy for a canoe so be safe.if i was going to paddle it i would stay in the area from fish stake to lady boot to colman island. however many of the campsites on the western side see little or absolutly no use at all. good luck have fun and may the wind be at your back.

      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 ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
