Upcoming trip

5 posts in this topic

So I've got 4 days off work next week that happen to line up with my dads off days as well, were thinking of taking a trip up north some place, it would be from Sun-Wed.

I'm stuck on where to head to though, of concern is that we will be using a 16' Lund Rebel with a 40 hp, wind and waves don't bother me, but I don't want to get pounded all week either. It would be nice to have a big lake to fish if the weather is decent but also have small lakes near by to hit if it really blows hard. We will most likely be staying in a hotel and trailering to the lake daily, any recommendations for lakes or areas to head too?

Leech!!! Fishing is pretty hot right now. There are plenty of close hotels in the area. The lake has plenty of areas to get out the wind a little bit. For the most part, the fish have been biting the whole lake. Check out the Leech Lake forum and you will see positive reports from the whole lake.

URL would be a good option, especially if the Tamarac River is open to fishing.

Crane-Sandpoint-Little Vermilion-Namakan-Kab chain if you dont mind the extra drive plus there are smaller lakes like Echo that produce pretty good. If you put in on Crane there are lots of good spots close to the landing.

Come stay in Bemidji, you've got a ton of hot lakes to choose from, and if the wind is blowing you've got a ton of smaller hot lakes to choose from. Win-win-win.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )

    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6.
