Those portages out of Fire Lake have been really buggy every time I've been there. Never had much luck fishing on Fire either, but there usually isn't anyone else around. Glad you had a good trip. My army son also uses the BW to "unwind."

Thanks for the report - I've thought about that area for a solo.

The site looks nice and not over-used either.

Nice report. I have used the "unzip, roll over and hang out" bathroom method before with similar results:) Rest assured, you will not repeat said mistake.


I took a three night solo and fished even less than you did. I'm not sure if it was laziness or lack of someone to share the activity with. I love to fish and fish solo often at home, but for some reason, I didn't have the urge to fish on my solo.


You got to experience the wilderness anyway! Thanks for sharing.

There's always money in the banana stand.

from the looks of things it had been some time since anyone was there. if anyone wants a off the beaten path site that is the place to go. but be careful I might be there.

If your there you'd make room for one of us wouldn't you? Only half of us snore. The other half might go pee on your shoes. :)
