Directions from Duluth

Recommended Posts

Ya Hey Der

Wondering if anyone has any advice on the best way to get to Baudette from Duluth. Mapquest shows that we should go through International Falls and cross over into Canada and then back over. How long should we expect to be on the road?

Thanks!

Should be about 210 miles right to Baudette plus the 10 miles to the lake from here. Drive it all the time and we always go thru Grand Rapids. Hwy 2 out of Duluth to Grand Rapids to Deer River then 46 to Northome. Make your way to 72 north to Baudette. Should be about 3.5-4 hrs depending on how the roads are. It might be shorter going the way mapquest says but then you would have to go thru Customs twice. Even going to I-falls then going west on hwy 11 to Baudette adds a few more miles. Hope this helps. Maybe there are some others that go a different way. Good luck! B-dude

Benelli_dude has it right...I think it is way longer to go up to the Falls and then across.

Ya Hey Der, I would take No. 2 for sure. That way, if you have a propane tank you need refilled, you could stop in Floodwood at Jerry's. They refill your tank and charge you only for the amount your tank actually takes. Unlike here where I live. I get nailed for $19.00, no matter what amount they put in. In Floodwood, if you have a completely empty 20 lber, I think they only charge $10. and change. Nice, friendly folks too. Can't remember for sure but I think it's a Phillips 66 station. Good luck! grin.gif 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Last time I went up there Hwy 53 to south of I Falls then across on the states side was about 10 min faster. You can go 70 mph up to virgina if the roads are clear.... 6 in one hand 1/2 dozen the other

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
