Black Top Road Conditions from Duluth

Recommended Posts

FOOTDOC

I am driving up this Thursday from Northern Indiana and am curious as to the road conditions from Duluth to Baudette. I will be taking route 2 thru Deer River and then picking up the road to Northome. From there, over to 72 up thru Red Lake and to Baudette. I have seen it has been very cold up that way and was curious as to what conditions the roads are in. Thanks!

We had rain followed by heavy snowfall last week and the roads are still covered with a sheet of ice - generally not good so drive carefully.

FOOTDOC: If you are coming I 94 thru Wisconsin to I 35 and north, Jump off at Mooselake and take Hwy 73 to Floodwood. You will save time and miles. I 35 goes back east before you get to Hwy 33 and then Hwy 2.. I travel that way from my place at Sturgeon Lk and it's quicker and less miles. Look at the map and you will see what I mean. Are you still on W/C much??? Kaz

Bill:

Plenty cold in Roseau/Warroad this morning too. It was -35, some say as cold as -41.

Had to put my truck in 4x4 to keep the back wheels from spinning out (stiff)... First few miles on square tires was a little rough too.

It sure is putting on ice to make up for lost time first part of December though. Would be nice to see a little warm up, but then we'll probably end up with all the snow thats sitting down in Iowa. Probably won't make much difference though up on LOW, sounds like cross ice travel is pretty limited with the snow you got last weekend. Guess I'll jump in the warm bomber and let Richard chaueffer me to the house. How's your hockey season going? winning a few? Bill

My boys hockey team has been doing pretty well. They have only lost 2 games so far. I can't remember how many they have won actually... it gets a little blurry with around 40 games. Season is just getting fired back up after the holidays... We will be on the road quite a bit soon.

Kaz, I still visit WC daily and have made a good number of fishing contacts there. I am itching to go north but the roads are telling me to stay put. We are getting 8-12" today. Hopefully by tomorrow morning, it will be 70 and sunny! Ha! I still might give it a try.

Kaz,

I caught an Amberjack a couple years ago in the Gulf out

of Alabama. That is an impressive fish!!!!!We were using

drop shot rigs and one of the guys on the boat caught 2

Jacks at the same time, one was about 10 pounds and the

other was bigger. I felt sorry for the guy, he had to

work and work hard to haul those fish up.

I hated the crappy huge rods they used, it made it real

tough to reel in fish. Everything felt so out of balance.

I suppose it takes some getting used to.

Enjoy your winter Kaz. We are hitting the sleeper houses

out of Morris Point this weekend.

Widetrack: Sounds like the boys are putting it together pretty well. Ya, I remember those days one tourney after another city after city, every Burger King looks alike after awhile. What level is your son playing at? Bill

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
      yes indeed, its fun when they fight back. lol .  the cgi's got a workout! I put a jar of the secret bait in my red box as soon as I got home.     BWAAAAA HAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ! ! !
