Looks like this weekend is going to be COLD shocked.gif Talking 20 below for highs and 40 below for lows!

What I have taken 3 diffent ways to red from the cities ( 65,371,35) and have found 65 seems to be the quickest.

Any one have other opinions, I am coming from 35E/52

1 other pretty good option is hwy 169 to grand rapids. I take it about 1/2 the time. the other 1/2 is usually up 35E to Moose lake as I live by 35e/35w split. Anybody know if the road from Moose to G rapids has an problems?

thaks

I take the 35 to Moose Lake option myself. I like being able to go 79.999 mph half of the way. We live real close so we'll have to get you on our broomball team and on the IBOT team. laugh.gif Hope the cold spell doesn't shut them down. They killed em this weekend!!!!!!!!! 7pm W.W. Fri. & Sat.

Wow, I tried to reply and a few seconds ago and a Virus popped into my computer somehow. I have excellent anti-virus soft ware but it couldn't quarentine the (Contact US Regarding This Word) thing. It popped up as a desk top item and i sent it to the recycle bin and dumpted it from there. Don't know if is still learking around in the C drive? Anyway, The Moose Lake exit is about 10 or 15 miles north of the Finlayson Exit. It is Hwy 27. Same difference but on 35 a bit longer.

Big V - Mudman, thats the route! I have gone about every way possible from the south metro and this seems to be the fastest and the safest when the weather turns rough.

Talking about routes to Red. I live in Cloquet (20 minutes north of Moose Lake/Barnum) My sister in law also lives in Hugo; not too far away from some of you guys.

I haven't been to Red this year, but I'm hoping to go a few times in Feb and March. Not sure what your plans are, but if anyone ever needed another person I'm not too far off. The only thing I DON'T own is an extention...and how hard is that to make? Not too difficult.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
