Trail Sticker on the lake?

Recommended Posts

SkunkedAgain

I swear that I read a thread about this before, but does anyone know if you need that MN trail sticker to ride snowmobiles on the lake, meaning the marked trails?

I've only been riding to my place and back and haven't bought a trail sticker this year. If you do need a sticker, are they enforcing it?

Not sure about the lake riding, but you do need a sticker on any trail that is groomed or maintained by any amount of state money!

If you are riding on a state groomed trail on the lake, you need a sticker..

So...I'm specifically talking about the staked trail that goes from the Landing in Head-o-Lakes through to Wakemup. Is that a state groomed trail then?

The Cook end of the trail, from the Landing to West side of Grassy Bay portage is marked by the Cook snowmobile Club and the trail from the Grassy Bay portage to Tower is marked by the Vermilion Penguins Snowmobile Club. This trail is not maintained by anyone (Not groomed, except for the Grassy Bay Portage that Don Johnson personally takes care of) so I would have to say that you should not need the trail sticker. It would be a good idea to discuss this will Dan Starr (Virginia) Conservation Officer.

I am really certain that you will need the sticker but call a CO if you aren't sure.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
