Hwy 1 from Tettegouche to Vermilion

5 posts in this topic

Next month I was planning to drive through Duluth to Hwy 1, and take that all the way up through Ely and to Lake Vermilion. I thought I read about road construction somewhere along the route. Is that true?

My wife has never been on the drive and I thought that she would really enjoy it.

There is a very long detour. It lasts maybe 30-40 minutes and is on loose gravel roads.

Threeball has it timed about the way I do. You're on the detour over half an hour, but it adds only about 20 minutes to the total route.

Great, thanks guys. It doesn't sound like the detour should affect the drive all that much. Out of curiosity, what town is the detour near?

It if stays where it is now, you'll hit it heading toward Ely when you get to Isabella. But if you're coming up a month from now, it's hard to tell if conditions will be exactly the same.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
