Recommended Posts

has anybody tried the campgrounds on the north and west sides of big cutfoot? i think theirs four or five of them. nice to get some sort of wind break when the big lake is honking to much. I have the itch!

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?

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
