Partyonpine.

The launch at Ellison Lake has always been private. The owner of Sand Point supper Club Herb Rummler owned it. He let people use it as a public launch because some of them would eat at his restaurant or drink at his bar. When died a few years ago the family sold the property and it became condo's/cabins. The restaurant is gone and the launch was gated off. Its the only access for the lake so I don't know if people with homes on the lake can use it or not. I haven't fished it since the change because of no launch. I had been fishing it several times a year since fall of 1970 when we bought a cabin on the Eau Claire Chain. It was a great bass northern lake.

The restaurant was good also . Ahh memories

Use to be one of my favorite lakes to fish when I was a kid. I have permission from a friend who has a cabin on it to launch my boat in his yard. Just haven't done it lately. Lakes water level is so low from what it was 15 yrs ago that its just a puddle now.

I use to like to fish Muck and Sand also, same deal.

I also used to fish Muck and Loon Lake. All those lakes require run off which just hasn't happened latley. In th 20's those lakes were drier and allowed the jack pines to grow to 6 inch diameter then flodded them out. I think its a cycle. Hjalmer Skoglund from Skoglands bar said they drove accross Ellison back then it was so low.

We use to catch some big bass in Loon. A few nice northerns and crappies too. Hows that landing look? Wasn't very good years ago. Whats that clear lake just up the road from there? Tommahawk?

The Loon lake landing is very soft sand and tough to launch out of plus the boat landing bay is separated by a sandbar from the lake due to low water. Are you talking straight north of Loon on the paper Co land? Muck lake? Was a great bass lake in the 80's

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
    •   Too late. It's now undergoing the digestive process as I type   This is first rabbit dinner I've had since my early 20's and I'm going to be 57 this year. I shot them while grouse hunting this fall and winter but haven't specifically targeted them since I was much younger. I've never heard of anyone really going after them anymore
