Sking at Lutsen 3-20

6 posts in this topic

I know you can't predict what the weather is like but in general is there good sking conditions around the 20th of March? I haven't been sking for 3 or 4 years and wanted to try again when my son is off for Easter vacation.

Thnaks,

Chaff

The snow up in the Lutsen area is great right now, and should stay that way for a long time.We have a place on Caribou Lake and measured 18 inches of fresh snow while we were up there this past weekend.

Where on caribou. I have a cabin out of Grand Marais and love fishing carabou. I've been looking for an access to get to the back part of the lake in the winter, so that I don't have go all around the pennisula.

reelemin, its straight across from the access in the bay. Usually we have a snowmobile or wheeler so I cannot give you an easy way to the big side of the lake.

As for fishing, we fished hard for 3 days in various places and found them in 24 ft of water on the big side. Walleyes and perch mostly with a few bass a pike. I measured 14-17 inches of ice with the top 4-6 inches being frozen slush.We did notice that after all the snow there were some new slush areas starting so I hope it doesnt get too bad.

How often do you make it up in the winter? If you are up there often we should meet up and hit the ice some weekend we are both in the area. Unfortunately I wont be able to make it up anymore until the first week of February

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
