Gooseberry Falls

11 posts in this topic

I went to Gooseberry Falls, a prominent tourist attraction along the North Shore of Lake Superior, over the 4th of July. My in-laws were staying with us and due to a bad a hip, my FIL couldnt make it to see all the falls - we made due at the main falls.

The ones we did see were filled with tourists but I managed to PP the people out of a few of these pics with decent results.

From what I see you did a good job removing people.

Nice images, OT. Thanks for sharing them with us. Man, that water is low. Of course, I think Duluth and the shore are in the process of getting pounded with rain right now, so maybe the falls will be roaring by this time tomorrow. smilesmile

It certainly is low - we've been in near drought conditions for a while now. Id love to go to this spot during the spring, when its still cold and the river is raging.

The storms last night were nice, but I was disappointed by another weak performance by the thunder/lightning. I cant wait to lay in bed listening to a storm so loud you can hardly sleep...we never got one of those last year and this year isnt looking good yet!

Well if they need some water, I am sure we can spare a few thousand gallons from the Red River now. We just got 5 inches of rain in a few hours in the souththern RRV and it is heading north as we speak.

Very nice. The tourists are always in the way at those spots. You did a very nice job of getting them out the way. smile

I was just there with the family last weekend. Awesome place but on a Sunday? I was amazed with the crowds. Not a negative thing, just lots of people enjoying the same thing.

    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy
