Fly Instead?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone ever charter a flight from the cities up to LOW? There's a service out of Crystal Airport that charters flights on small planes.....just wondering if anyone has ever looked into it.

*edit* Just to clarify I'm not saying the the company out of Crystal Airport specifically goes there (haven't heard back from them yet)....just that they do sell charter flights to various places.

Shooter,

I am thinking is going to cost you about $1100.00 for a one way charter out of the Twin Cities. Just to rent an airplane that would take you there and back in about 3 hours is about $200.00 to $250.00 per hour. That's about $600.00 to $750.00 not counting pilot services, and that's just dropping you off, that price could double if you need to get picked up in a few days. If you have a couple friends that would split the cost you could get by cheaper. I still think you are looking at a trip that will cost about $2200.00 total.

Thanks for the reply....obviously not worth it for most people (including me). Oh well, half the fun is the drive up right?

Shooter,

We fly up every year from Alabama. This year we got tickets into Grand Forks for less than Minneapolis. Much shorter drive from there...but either way you are correct, it is worth the drive either way

From what I remember Mark is very close. We also thought about doing away with the long, endless 5-6 hour road trip. However after just a little checking we were happy to go back to hitting the road.

I know Sportsman's Lodge and a couple other resorts offer air package deals on their websites, but you would probably need to call the lodge to get rates.

Check with Marvin Windows. They sometimes will let you get on their plane at Hubert H Humphrey terminal. Keep in mind it is stand-by only. Its around $150 per person to Warroad one way.

      I never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics
