Hey Bob, we'll see you up there. Actually we're heading up on the 21st, but arriving at Chamberlain Narrows the morning of the 22nd. We'll be in the cabin right in front of the dock on the south end. I'm still in my silver/black alumacraft with the black Suzuki engine. See you there!

Sorry, never made it up that far. Bear Narrows area was as far as we went.

We just got back from the Chamberlain Narrows area. Our first day was a little slow. We caught enough for a good fish fry, but we had to work for them. Gulp Alive minnows was all I used the first day.

The rest of the trip we used live minnows, crawlers and some salted minnows and did quite well. On our trip, the live bait definitely out preformed the Gulp Alive. Largest walleye for the week was 26" and LOTS of walleyes over 20". Water temps were mostly in the upper 60s.

Only down side to the trip- On the 2nd to last evening I hit a rock up by Jackfish Narrows and wrecked my prop shaft! Other than that it was a great trip.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
