9 posts in this topic

Heading to NW Angle Fri and was wondering if anyone knows where the cheapest gas is from Duluth to Int. Falls to Warroad? Thanks. Looking at $300+ in gas for the trip shocked.gif

If you do a Yahoo search for Minnesota Gas Prices there is a site that tells you gas prices for all over the state. All of the information is reported by customers/passer-bys so some of the areas are a little spotty with reports, but almost all of the bigger towns are updated daily.

For the past two years, and I am unable to explain why, I have found that Hibbing is typically about $.08 - $.10 less than anywhere I pass on my way up there. Two weeks ago I left Osakis and everything was higher by about $.02. I get to Hibbing and it is $.10 lower than Osakis and even nearby Chisholm and Nashwauk.

The reason for this is the WxxMxxt Superstore. All of the gas stations in town are low in order to compete with them. Price this AM was $2.98 per gal

Typically the gas in Cloquet and Scanlon is around the same price as Hibbing for the same reason...

Thanks, beats the $3.20+ around here. Think its 3.25, later.

The Station in Cloquet next to the Wal Mart is the areas best price. It's on the North bound side of the highway at the south end of town. Cook and Orr always seem to be .06 to .10 higher than Cloquet. Jims on the corner of Hwy 53 and Ash River Trail is usually less than Orr by a few cents.

Cheapest gas in Minnesota is the gas someone came into our garage and stold, while my wife and I were working in the back yard! About 6-8 gallons in three different plastic gas cans.

Someone had also tried to get the gas out of the tank in my boat...had to be kids, they tried to unscrew the fitting in the tank and had the hose all twisted up....all they would have had to do is unsnap the hose connection, one little pinch and it would have been theirs!

Even though I have locking gas caps, I'm running all 4 trucks at 1/4 to 1/2 tank, unless I have to go somewhere far....if I get hit, they won't get as much!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
