Map help

4 posts in this topic

My best maps have been ruined through rain, use and abuse. I would like something that covers the the east half of St. Louis County and Lake County. There appears to be a lot of options. What would you recommend in a folding map smaller than a volkswagon? Thanks alot.

The only folding map I can think of is the Superior National Forest map. It pretty well covers the area you described, plus Cook County.

Sportsman's Connection recently published a new "All Outdoors" recreational atlas of NE Minnesota. It has coverage of just about every recreational feature you can think of, plus trails, most roads, public lands...you name it. The level of detail is considerably better than any other atlas I've seen of the area. Do a search for "Sportsman's Connection" + "Atlas" and you'll find their website.

Cash has some good advice. The SNF map is available in a waterproof version so it may be your best option.

Thanks. I use to have one of the Superior forest maps--I'll look into getting another and will do the recommended search. I have an old Vincent Atlas of Minnesota book...must be out of print and is in book form. Also the Delorme Atlas. (Found the Sportsman's Connection and ordered a couple things. Thanks again.)

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
