LOW Trip its almost time

6 posts in this topic

we are heading up to zipple bay in two weeks and you dont even want to know what i had to do to go on this fishing trip during VALENTINE'S weekend. I tried to tell her that every day is valentine day with her, ( not a smart move ) so instead i just payed for the trip before i told her. yes some of you are thinking man that guy has some cahunas or some of you are saying thats how stupid those cheeseheads are but all i can think is i will be in heaven for 4 days and nights and then back to [PoorWordUsage]. anyhow my question is what is the quickest way to LOW from the cities? i have seen some say 4hrs but i have been there before and it took almost 6hrs. is there some secret fish road that i dont know about? please help me !by the way i only need the info for the trip up, i will take the long way home.

Hey packman, try the Upper Red Lake thread, page 7. LOW is just a little farther North. It's "the best way to URL" post. I like the last post on page one myself, click on page five, then page 7, good luck and good fishing!

It all depends on what end of the cities you're departing from, what time of day and what day of the week. If there is metro traffic, I'll take 35W to Moose Lake west on 27 to 73 north on 73 to hwy 2 through Grand Rapids to 46 up to Northome, then take 72 up to Baudette.

If there isn't any traffic in the cities (I live out on the east side of the cities) the fastest for us has been to go 169 up to Grand Rapids, then take 46 up to Northome, then take 72 up to Baudette.

Like Toolgarage says but I think in garrison there is a Hwy 6 that might be 15 minutes faster then going into Grand Rapids. It will take you to Cohasit which is a few miles west of grand rapids. If you take 46 when it ends you have to go like 2 or so miles south and west towards Bemiji to get to 72. You dont want to take 71 north because that heads northeast and will add an extra hour to your drive.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
