Am thinking about trying to line up a trip with a few friends to go camp for a week and go wheeling and also to do a little fishing! Looking for ideas of campgrounds to go to with access to wheeler trails preferably around the Bemidji area! Any ideas of places to go would be greatly appreciated!

I've been checking that out! The Soo line trails look pretty fun! But just looking for input in case anyone has ridden any trails in that area and what the conditions and riding was like!

Soo Line trails would be fun if you like flat straight trails that seem to go on forever.

The next closest thing to Bemidji with campgrounds from what I could tell is Spider Lake just west of Pequot Lakes.

Martineau by Akeley and Walker, also their are some trails that run around cass lake area through the chippewa forest I believe.

The martineau is quite nice from what I've ridden.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
