If you have a H20 with the lakemaster chip in it, they have the cribs marked on the grid.

I dont know of any where else to find it.

The Upper Red Lake Area assocation website has them posted aas that was the group that created and installed them. Actaully a very interesting tale of a small organazation pulling together to acheive big things. They are a Fishing Minnesota sponsor and sponsored by FM, the crib pojects where one of many things done by a memeber driven organazation such as the Upper Red Lake Assocation, this Assocation also does beach clean up every spring and many other great things for the Upper Red Lake area. Sadly the ,membership is dwindling making projects such as the cribs and beach clean-up harder and harder to achieve.

In 1998 after the collapse of the walleyes the URLAA was down to 5 members. It was Upper Red Lake's darkest hour. I will be forever thankfull to all the people statewide that joined the URLAA and started to get things done. For instance I do not think that many people know that every crib put in the lake was Sponsered by a fisherman or business paying $250 for the materials to get that crib in the lake. Building and installing the cribs was done with volunteer help.

It was well worth a little hard work. I will be forever grateful for the friendships that were made over the years. It does not seem like it has been that long since it all started. Now I just need to get up there and get my attitude adjusted!

I also found the gps crib coordinates on my lowrance xog. i bought the topo map at cabelas and downloaded all the lakes in the upper half of the US. i highly recommend the topo map from cabelas. it is just like the lake master chips. Have the cribs moved at all? 2 years ago we lost a anker in one. the last 2 years i fished the last weekend in may. the fishing was hot. i am going to plan another trip this year. how does the last weekend in may sound?? to early or to late?? thanks for the info

      I used my scheels case last weekend 2 days in a row. I did not go easy on it. It got thrown around on the ice, I threw it in the truck and I stood on it while on the ice. My buddy has the otter case and the durability and construction are similar. So far it was a good investment and no worry’s about broken rods.
    • eyeguy 54
      this will be the third winter with my red ones. Still like new. The eye case hardly gets used but the panfish case sees the ice a lot.     
    • rundrave
      can any of you guys with the hard side cases speak to the durability of the plastics on these units in bitter cold weather? do these cases hold up to abuse or do they get fragile and break?

      With the ice reports all over the internet , conditions different at every access. I would say its best to check reports on the access you are planning on using.  Most if not all the phone calls about ice conditions and fishing reports can be found on social media . We still have plenty of openings for fish house rentals . I be leave Hillmens also has plenty of rentals this season still open , Including the behemoth double decker that sleeps 10 to 12. There phone number is 218 647 8504    We use Hillmens access during the ice season, I talked to Buddy  Hillmen this morning . He will be allowing  Wheelers/sleds out up to 2 miles. He also said to mention to drive slow and use extreme caution. as there is quite a bit of rough ice. With  another lite snow and breeze the rough broken ice will catch snow and may be harder to see.  Beacon Harbor is also allowing wheelers and sleds I be leave. They did have a fishing report  on there facebook page.   Westwind the premier resort here on upper red lake is well organized and also ready to go.  There were just a handful of portables on the lake yesterday.  I think I saw a couple out of beacon harbor, 2 out of hillmens and 4 or 5 out of westwind.  I did get out again last night deer hunting. I also had a shot. I missed. I'm shooting a recurve with no sites . I've taken a deer with a shotgun. 20 gauge, a rifle 30 30, a compound bow. So I went back to the recurve a few years ago. Man do I have the stories of all the misses over the years. It seems with a bow something always goes wrong. I can say that I think hunting with a bow makes you a much better hunter as you have to plan for shots under 30 yards.  2 years ago I was set up just off a snowmobile trail. If a deer walked by me it would be a 15 to 20 yard shot.  A small buck appeared to my left. He was coming right down the trail. I stood up. Grabbed my bow  as  I watched him  through the corner of my eyes. I only sit about 5 feet off the ground, with no cover to speak of my plan was to let him walk by, I would take the shot just after he passed. As he slowly passed by I took one step to turn as I drew back . The seat tipped down and spooked him. Off he went.  Standing there reviewing what happen I thought?  Man should I have pulled back while he was more in front of me. I thought would he of seen me move. I reenacted  what happen pulling my arrow back , aiming right in front of me again, thinking would he of seen me make that move. I repeated this about 5 times. I then hung up my bow and set down. Not long after I here a ruckus  to my right. I stand up ,look down the trail ,here comes a nice 10 pointer. Full speed.! He is going to run right where I was practicing aiming. I pull back and let her fly. My arrow wacks him right in the rib, he never even flinches or slows down. I watch him run down the trail with my arrow sticking in the side of him as he turns the corner.  I get down ,  right where I hit him there"s deer hair all over,  I get to where he jumped a fallen tree , more hair, I get to where he turned the corner and there' s my arrow bent in half with no broadhead. We never found a drop of blood. Bob harvested the same deer 4 days later. I found a small hole in his hide directly on a rib bone about the size of a pencil eraser.  Now back to last night. All of a sudden I here what I think is a deer running through the woods. I grab my bow, about 3 minutes later here comes a doe walking right where I expect,  She's going with the wind. She is going to walk right where I have shot a  flu flu arrow every night I've set in that spot.  I always pick a spot and fling a arrow before I get down. She had no clue I was there, I pulled back as she stepped out and my glove is right in my sight line. It throws my concentration off, I ended up panicking and flinging my arrow rather then resetting . I'm glad I missed , another lesson is put in the books. Take off glove? Different glove? Hunt when its warmer so I do not need gloves, The list goes on and on. Its the thrill of the hunt.    Well everyone have a happy thanksgiving  cookie

      Now is the time to talk with kids about the dangers of ice. Ice thickness varies greatly on lakes, ponds and rivers throughout the state. Some water bodies have none, while others have several inches, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Ice, especially early ice with snow cover, is extremely deceptive because you can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” said DNR Conservation Officer Adam Block. “Parents need to teach their kids that ice is never 100 percent safe. If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward newly forming ice for entertainment. “In addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket or float coat,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines
      No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). Children should never be unsupervised around ice. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. Check ice thickness at regular intervals – conditions can change quickly. Before heading out, inquire about conditions and known hazards with local experts. Avoid channels and rivers. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
