They are very nice, indeed! Try to get the prime sites if you can that overlook the lake (Cutfoot) and have beach access as well. If you look up the U.S. Forest Service site, I think you can look over the campgrounds and choose the site you want. You are correct that it is nice to stay out of the wind on the big lake. Only a real strong south wind can ruin these sites for having the boat on shore, but compared to the size of waves on the big lake, you should be in good shape.

We made our first campig reservations for the year in late December for Gull Lake in June. Can't wait to get back into the boat. If you ever get a chance to fish Cut Foot in late Sept or early Oct you would not believe the colors. We did this a few years ago. What the fishing lacked that day the colors made up for it.

Anyone know how fast East Seelye Bay fills up? I used to spend a week there every year when I was younger but I haven't been there in over 10 years. They used to fill up pretty quick back then. I'm looking to get back up there again this year. Is it hard to find a site for the weekend there or at Deer Lake arriving on a Thursday night?

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
