Want To Rent Kayaks For A Day Trip

6 posts in this topic

My wife and I would like to rent a couple kayaks for a day trip --- preferably the kind of trip where you start at a drop point and get picked up at an exit point.

Anyone got any ideas or leads? I was thinking maybe the St. Croix but I don't know anything about it, or if there's any place that does trips like we want to do.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

There are several trip options on the Brule River. You can rent kayaks right in Brule, WI, drop your car off at the take-out point and get shuttled to the put in. We do an ice out trip every year and it's a great paddle.

Wild River Outfitters in Grantsburg Wisconsin is a great place to do this. They take you up to drop off destination based on how far you want to paddle, then you end up at their location. I've done this many times and it is very easy, fun and scenic. They are located on highway 70 in Grantsburg. About 70 miles from the Metro.

Do you have a destination in mind? This type of service is very popular now.

Lots of places around Lake Superior do this, many of the popular rivers such as the Cannon, Kettle, St. Louis, St. Croix etc. Also many outfitters in Ely will do this.

    • Watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg) or when it swings up past 30.0 Hg. That's my reference on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. 
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
