A group of us is going to the lower manitou week of May 20th. Could anyone tell me what will be biting that time of year?

Lake trout, Pike, Smallmouth Bass, White Fish are the only sportfish in the lake except muskie (closed season in May ). Trout are the main target.

Spring fishing is usually SUPER for trout. 100 fish days can happen...Look at surface temps...~55 and below and the trout will be all over in the water column. Get much above 55 and they will be deeper.

Pike will bite and there are alot of them and some very nice fish. Where are you staying?

Camp Manitou on the stretch has HK cabins. I believe his site is www.campmanitoufishing.net It is a smaller camp and they have a variety of options. He is on FM as Outfitter17, he should be able to help you out.

They have a nice place. It is about 20+ miles by boat to their resort from the landing. Nice place. Only stayed there once, because we normally stay at my buddies parent's outpost.

Their HSOforum has info on maps.

Fun lake with some nice fish in it.

It is Moose Track Cottages. I believe it is called, AJ's Hideaway...It is just before the stretch opens up.

Where are you located?

We are located on an island about 6 miles before the strecth opens up. I know the cabin you are talking about, it's for sale and terry from borderland realty called to see if I was interested in buying it. We went to look at it, but there was no dock to park at last fall, so we just turned around and went back to camp. Do you know if it sold yet?

All the trout fishing reports have been good for the manitou area this past weekend. Looking at the extended forcast it looks like we will have some mild temps when you are up next weekend. It should be a great trip. Look forward to meeting you.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
