    Longlegged Lake Question

    Hi guys,

    Anybody know if there is a public boat landing on Longlegged / Stork, if we're camping in the area and want to go check it out for a day or two?

    Thanks in advance for any info,

    Well it depends on what you're definition of a 'landing' is. If you have more then a 16' tin boat then no. That may even be pushing it from what I've heard.

    It's a very rugged road to the lake, something like 30-50 miles of bad gravel I have been told. The landing is also very rough....be careful what you try and bring back there

    I got my 17.5' boat in but had to work at it. It was a good thing I had a lot of help. The road in is realy bad!

    I broke my transom saver off the trailer there. Be careful, go slow, and pick the spot where you position your trailer carefully.

    You can get a 17-18 footer in there, there is no camping unless canadian citizen, I am sure both camps will be watching that area. Nice water, but is roughly 40-50 miles of true logging road, resort owner busted his trailer axle when we were there.

    RE: Longlegged Lake Question

    Back when I was really into muskie exploration, I managed my 18'w/150 in and out with a four-wheel-drive. The launch was more of a steep ditch and we had to pick our angle when we pulled out carefully.

    It was absolutely one of the best places I've ever fished, gorgeous water with almost complete solitude, but then again that was over 15 years ago and we were the only muskie boat on Stork Lake that entire week.

    hey John,

    yes there is a public launch on Stork lake. The biggest problem is making a turn as you back onto the launch. You will have to back out onto the launch with your tires in the water. However, it is safe (unless you back off the launch) as there is space in between the cement slabs....much better than some of the launches in Canada.

    Oh yea, the road to there may be a little rough.

    Anyway, if you want more info, etc. like a map, you can contact me.
    I think you know my email address.
