What do you guys think about George Crosby Manitou state park in MN?

Is it a good place to camp and fish at?

Camping and hiking are nice but the fishing may not be the best. I only fished the lake once with no results and the river holds your typical small brookies. And they are few and far between catches. Beautiful scenery to be fishing in none-the-less.

Midcoast when will you be up that way? If your heading up within the next week, I'd happily show you some decent spots not too far from the park.

But yeah the parks since. I have only caught tiny trout from the rivers in that area. Go fish inland.

mid-- i haven't fished the river extensively, but have visited the park twice..... fished the lake once and didn't hook up with anything...... but i think the dnr stocks it every year with splake..... check the lake finder at mndnr for whichever lake that it (benson, maybe?)..... we probably weren't at the right depth-- i think the splake head deep in the summer...... maybe try some smaller lake trout jigging spoons or jigging with minnow or cut nightcrawlers and see if you can't nab 'em.... the lake's not that big, so once you find 'em, you should find a few more.....

the brookies in the river are by no means big, but both times i tried it, we caught a bunch of them...... biggest probably was 6-8"..... but they are a blast on a light fly rod..... just walk down to the bridge where the superior hiking trail crosses the river..... start there, find some deeper pools/runs and flick yer fly in.... they are pretty eager to say the least..... perhaps not big enough to eat, but lots of fun to catch..... and above the park, before the river takes it's big tumble down the canyon, the fishing is supposed to be better-- can't speak from experience though.....

beautiful park-- i highly recommend it.....

    • So I know youre supposed to run the ice castle's AC from a 30amp outlet, but could I run it off of a standard 20amp outlet out of my garage? I would think if it gets too hot the 20amp fuse will pop? I've ran it for a short period of time before; but I was just thinking in case we have company over some time and needed some overflow sleeping arrangement... Its connected via a 50' 12 guage cord I beleive
    • Why are we still allowing deer farms to exist and spread disease?  
    • I'm assuming based on the rubbery consistency that some kind of silicon caulk was used.  Check this site out:  https://www.hunker.com/12314253/how-to-remove-a-silicone-stain-from-concrete   Good Luck.
    • Just bought a new house and the garage floor is a bit pitted.  I was planning on resurfacing it as a DIY job since right now will be the last time in the next 20 years the garage is empty.   There are a few spots where the pitting is pretty deep and the previous owner plugged them up with some sort of rubbery filler that has the consistency of industrial bubble gum.  Any ideas on how to get that stuff out of there?  I tried prying it out with a screwdriver, hoping it would pop out a like plug, but not so much.  Also thought I might be able to blast it with a power washer but I haven't tried that yet.     Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I can't even think of the proper search terms to ask google about this.
    • Thought this was a good pod cast   http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/doug-duren-bryan-richards
    • who has time for that? haha here is some stuff from the same biologist https://www.usgs.gov/staff-profiles/bryan-richards?qt-staff_profile_science_products=3#qt-staff_profile_science_products    
    • Holy craap!  There is pee all over the woods, the DNR needs to stop this before all the Deer and we die!  😨
    • Rank is the order on which you draw for your prefered spot. #1 chooses first. #2 chooses second, etc.   I was drawn as the #1 alternate for the MN DNR hunt, Hwy 61 & Warner Rd in St Paul.  This is a new one for me.
    • The article in the Strib.     www.startribune.com/louisiana-to-hunters-deer-urine-lures-might-spread-disease/490173741/   Why we are still allowing deer urine to be shipped and sold is beyond me.    That Joe Rogan podcast was very interesting and informative.   Well worth the time.
