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!

Thanks guys! 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

      Hey, Oakley is one of my favorite brands, but now many suppliers of wholesale sunglasses are accessible on the Internet selling sunglasses in bulk.

      Hi there, Polarized sunglasses of lens color like a grey base lens with a blue mirror is the way to go or for freshwater and inshore an amber, rose or copper lens with a green mirror are lenses that can be worn. My father is also a fisherman, So, I bought wholesale sun glasses for him from some useful sites. I always prefer to buy sunglasses in bulk, as buying bulk gives a number of choices to wear and it is also affordable in cost.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.
