Im looking to head up to the BWCA for a few days during the summer what are some good areas to go into. Im coming from the cities, might bring my GF so i will probably need an easy place to get in and get around. Any information would be great. Thanks

Do you have an idea of about where you would want to go in from? I know of some easy places off of the Echo Trail. You could try the Hegman lake entry point.

When I plan BWCA trips I always start out by checking out the Superior National forest map. Then run the lake names that look plausable thru the DNR lake reports. Then check out the detailed topo maps. Permits fill up fast these days so plan well ahead.

If you just want some ideas, Lake one-three and the Isabella section are easy access and smaller waters.

What do you want to fish for? There are some places you could go to outside the BWCA that you may actually see less people.

Down Deep

Gabbro & Bald Eagle out of Ely. One medium long portage from the parking lot and you are there. Paddle through Little Gabbro and up some current to Gabbro and you are there. If the current is too strong, the portage to Gabbro is a hop and a skip. Very good walleye fishing in both lakes. Book your permit as early as possible.

You can always go to Lakes 1 2 3, but every scout troop in the BWCA will be there as well.

I'll second Gabbro. Over the years, it has always been a group favorite. This summer's trip marks the 4th time in 30 years we'll go in at Little Gabbro, finally surpassing now the counts for our earlier entries at Fall Lake and Lake One back in the day.

But get your permit yesterday! As an example: Less than 10% of the Little Gabbro entry permits remain available for June and July.

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
