Camping at the lake? Here’s what you’re going to need!

A steady flow of of loaded boat trailers find their way north on any given Friday. Smiling drivers are filled with anticipation for a fun and relaxing weekend in God’s great wilderness. Families have come to the Park Rapids “Vacationland” for generations, passing down traditions like always making a stop at Itasca State Park, parking in the center of Main Street for shopping downtown, heading to Emmaville to read the signs such as “Weeds Free! – Pick your own.” and for the past 5 or 6 years, asking the guys at Smokey Hills Outdoor Store where the fish are biting and getting all of the outdoor gear for the weekend.

The mosquitoes are abundant up north! Ask us where to find the following products to put a damper on the bug’s feast:

  1. Repel® brand “Camp Fogger” – spray a perimeter around your cabin or camping area to reduce the number of bugs willing to risk death to get to your skin.
  2. Thermacell® Outdoor Lanterns provide a second layer of defense and will keep a good amount of mosquitos out of a 5′ x 5′ area.
  3. 3M’s “Ultrathon” insect repellent spray can be applied to your clothing and your skin as a final layer of protection.

While staying at the lake, you may as well catch your supper. Ask Josh how to catch the fish and where to find these lures:

  1. Northland® spinnerbaits & buzz baits only $2.99 ea
  2. The “Long Shank” Jig from KenKatch Tackle of Bemidji, Mn
  3. Slay the crappies with the Flu Flu jig by Double OO™

When it comes time to start your fire and cook your fresh fillets, you should be prepared with:

  1. Rapala® 7″ Fillet Knife with sheath for $24.99
  2. Olympia® camp lighter and bottle opener in one only $6.99
  3. Shorelunch™ fish breading
  4. Frying Saucer’s Outdoor cooker for $139.99 or Stansport’s cast iron frying pan for $28.99

After  filling your belly and watching the sunset, you’re going to need a place to sleep:

  1. Are you often mistaken for Paul Bunyan? Are you immune to poison ivy? Is your skin so callused that mosquitoes can’t penetrate it?  Then just sleep next to the fire & under the stars in a Coleman® double sleeping bag.
  2. Do you trust your weatherman? Can you snuggle with wild bears & retrieve honey from bee hives? Do you enjoy sleeping in saunas? Then look for the Coleman® 2-man tent and pray that mother nature doesn’t blow away your $79 teepee with you inside.
  3. Option three is the best option. Stay protected from the storms, bears & bugs in a climate controlled Ice Castle Itasca Vacation Series RV. We can’t think of a better way to spend $187.50 a month!

Park Rapids Fishing Report 8/14/16 to 8/20/16
Walleye – Find the deep weed edge and move fast! Walleye are active this time of year and can be caught trolling with any number of Rapalas. Ask Josh at the store to point out some hotspots on your local lake.
Northern Pike– The big pike are hanging pretty deep from 15 to 30 feet of water. Use lead core line and an 8″ Jake to get in the strike zone.
Bass – Out on the deeper sunken islands, sunken bars, taller weed beds in anywhere from 5’-15’ of water. Looking for the most lifelike lures like worms, crawfish, and frogs. Tie on an Outkast “RTX Jig” paired with any of the Yum Plastics such as the “Chunks, Christie Craw, and Bad Mama” For the best luck at hooking that big mama!
Sunfish/Crappie – They are still hunkered down in the taller weed beds and structures sitting 12’-18’ of water. Mostly on the hunt for any one of VMC’s “Wingding, Boottail, or Nymph all tipped with a small leech or crappie minnow.
