BWCA trip day 1

14 posts in this topic

Oooo.. did you have fun drinking the lake water? Or was the water not drinkable? I remember stowawing Coke cans and other sweets for a week long trip in the BW woods. It may ruin the whole experience of nature but man does it satisfy. Hmmm Snickers bar.

Anyhow you can always snap really nice BW pictures. Thats one of the great things about it. Those pixs always bring back good memories.

MT, thanks for sharing such a beautiful place. Took me back to 30 years ago, when I was last there.

Great shots.

Had a great time. Fishing was quite good with walleyes and crappes being the most caught, northerns and smallies followed that.

I didn't take any photos, but my buddy did. I'll try to get some posted.

We had two Wen Noh Nah canoes and rented a Souris River Canoe. They were all great canoes, with the Souris River edging the others out for overall performance in our opinions. It was a little more fishable because it seemed to have more stability.

I first read you guys were headed towards Polly, I wondered if the famous Polly bears had paid ya a visit, and alas, I guess they did. laugh Just adds some excitement to the trip if in the end everything works well. smile

Thanks for the reports guys, I'll have my own to post when I get back from an Oct trip.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
