Recommended Posts

Does anybody know what the launches are like on N/S Center? Also, What is it like going through the channel?

I don't think you can put in on south center right now. north center is doable but its a bit of a nightmare right now. what kind of boat do you have? that will make a difference.

I had a tournament out there this past weekend and everyone was able to get in and out. Launching is easier than loading, but they both aren't to pleasing... For loading the boat use your trolling motor to get to the trailer then coast up to it and crank it on with the strap. I had to crank my boat over the sand bar that has been formed from people powerloading their boats, otherwise I couldn't get to my trailer.

The landing is a little tough, but you CAN do it. The fishing wasn't too bad either..

More like a Rock bar than a "sand" bar. Careful with your prop's, especially if it is aluminum. If going through the channel between N/S, it is pretty shallow - on the south side of the bridge there is a concrete slab that spans the whole channel, only about 12" deep there. If the water isn't too stirred up, it is had not to miss - look for all the white lines on it from all the skags drug across it.

I spent the afternoon checking local access.

Chisago seems fine. Not great, but fine.

S.Center is hard to judge.. Cant see in the water. Although I did see my first double axel trailer(ranger) at this afternoon. N/Center looks rough, but you might be able to get a boat in it as Bob Downey said, but it doesnt look good.

Green is fair, not great ,one side is better than the other, Little Green is best. No probs there.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
