Moving the Hall of Fame

7 posts in this topic

What do you guy's think about moving the Hall of Fame to the "X"?

Personally, I think it should be moved as of now, no one visits it. You could charge an Adult $1.00, H.S. age $0.50 and children under 12 free and you would still make money.

The Rangers will spend every loose taconite fund nickle they have to save the hall of fame. It can't afford to run the lights on its own.

I guess that's kind of my point. It's a great thing to have but if no one visits, what's the sense? If it were located at the "X" it would be seen by thousands each year.

Where I agree that hockey in Minnesota has it's root's on the Range, the Hall of Fame should be more accessable.

I guess I should state why I bring this up. I read in the paper that there is some discussion about moving it. I think Duluth and the Excell Center were both mentioned. In addition, there are some other states also expressing interest in housing it. Just curious as to all you folks feel about it.

I would like to see it stay in Minnesota for sure. There is absolutely no doubt that it will receive the most visitors if it is in St. Paul either by the Excel Center or in it. I sure feel for those people in Eveleth that have helped it grow into what it is today.

I've heard rumors of moving it to the mall of america. If a freakin butterfly store can survive there, the HHOF should be able to make it. What does the MOA bring in each year? Something like 30 million people? That would make sense to me.

I would be alright with moving it if they keep it somewhere in Minnesota. I'll be honest, I drive by it twice a day and have been in it twice in my life. smirk.gifcrazy.gif

I agree that it must stay in MN. I have been there and it was nice when I was there 15 yrs ago. I saw the report in the Star Tribune and was amazed at what is happening. I feel for the city and people of Eveleth who put so much into it. Is it possible to keep most of the articles in Eveleth and give the people a taste of what is there with a little display at the X? Maybe that would spark some tourisim?

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
