Recommended Posts

packman

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.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
