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?

    • 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.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
