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?

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.

Go past moose lake to barnum exit. Cr 6 to 73 Straight road.Took it on the 7th of Jan. We got to Grand Rapids in 2.6hrs pulling a single smowmobile trailer. We live in Centerville. Avg 65 to 75mph.

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.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
    • Chevy Nation
      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
