The best way to go as far as a pretty straight road in good shape would be to head down to Silver Bay and get on Lake County 15 / Forest Highway 11 and that will take you over towards Hoyt Lakes. Lake County 15 will turn into St. Louis County 16. Stay on SLC 16 and that will bring you out to US 53 just south of Eveleth. Once you are on 53 just head north and that will bring you right to Cook.

Right now There is a fairly decent detour on Highway 1 between Isabella and the Tomahawk Road (about 20 miles south of Ely) and then again between the Y west of Tower and Angora. Any other time I would recomend that route if you wanted a scenic drive with a good chance of seeing a moose but there is major road construction going on south of Ely.

Are there any problems in coming up Hwy 2 from the North Shore to Ely? Would I still hit the construction at Hwy 1 by going that way?

And is the construction West of Tower still going on?

I would appreciate any info.

Thank you

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
