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?

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
