my wife and i are going to go island camping and fishing for the first time in july this summer at voyageurs national park in northern mn. we are hopeing others will share their experiences with us so we can know what to look foreward too and how best to prepare. what do we need to know? thanks all!
webdude, thanks for the welcomne and the site. dr. thanks for the responce!we heard about voyageurs last summer 2004. the person who refered us said park truck and trailer for free at kabetogama/sphunge island on the west side of the park. they will help us select an island and we go all for free. is this true? we went to the various camping and boat shows for 2005 and some of the "residence of namakan lake" said to launch from ash river and that namakan lake was more pristine with better fishing and swimming." is truck and trailer parking at ash river the same as at kabetogama-free! our island of choice is " sexton island." approx. 8 miles east of kabetogama/sphunge island. Our boat will allow us to access kabetogama-namakan-or rainy lake within 25 minutes from any direction. my wife and i just want to eat sleep fish and swim for four days without any complications. any info you can give us to help pre-pare would be appreciated so much. thank you and good day!!! ps. my wife wants to know if the bears really visit the islands that much in search of food??? thanks.
look to deep water that time of year (30 to 40 feet) near breaks on Nam. Vertical jigging is probably going to be your best bet. I usually fish Kab, near Frog isl. Also good is sucker creek mouth and a bar that is by donut island. also try cutover isle. Anywho, Ive always had the best luck for larger eyes in the deeper water.
PS watch out for rocks if youre not familiar with the area
1st time going to voyageurs. can u share? - - -

People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
