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

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
