Have there been any updates to prospective future plans? Also, have they been working to clear the site, or perhaps it's too cold?

 

Thanks for any insights!

 

 

 

The last I heard, they are planning on rebuilding the store and shooting to have it open by fishing opener 2019.  We'll see if that happens or not.  I'm sure the red tape with the insurance companies is a mile long, so getting to the point or rebuilding could take some time.

Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them

I also heard that some bureaucrat has to say whether they can use the existing slab or need to make  a new one.  Don't know whether that is true or not.

I would want it checked if it were mine.

I’ve also heard it will be a precast concrete building. Newspaper said it will be bigger than it was so will need some new concrete slab

That's getting it done!! What are the odds of it being open by the fishing opener?  I believe that is the target date.

Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

Mesabi Daily reported yesterday 24 Feb 2019 that Cook was granted funds for Zup's rebuild, IRRRB approved a 

$350,000 grant to the City for development infrastructure related to the rebuild. The money will be spent on on-site water and waste water upgrades, and overall site-work. Construction is expected to begin by March or April. 

That's the latest news, it appears the credit for the article was supplied by KBJR.COM. 

This winter up here has been brutal this year not complaining just making a statement. We built a new house 12 years ago, 2x4 roof truss and 2x6 walls never really worried about snow weight prior to this year but after inspecting depth of compacted snow we decided to remove the weight. I realize the house is an inanimate object but when we  were done is was like the house gave a big sigh of relief!! Come on spring, enough of this BS. Good day to you all.

Drove by there last week and there's nothing going on.  Looks like a parking lot.

Bummer, would have been nice to see if they could get up and running before the end of fishing season.....Anyone ever been in the grocery store on 53 in Virginia, across 53 from the Holiday Station at the intersection? Guess that's where we will have to stop on our way up...…..

I’m really sad about the whole thing not only for the owners but all the good people on the west end of the lake that really depend on that store specifically.  Not to mention during our stay at the cabin for 5 weeks  (west end) we will have to travel all the way to Virginia for every food shopping trip.  I can’t imagine how much business they will lose during those peak summer weeks.  I’m hoping it’s done somehow some way shortly after 4th of July / but realize that’s probably wishful thinking at this point.

      There is one pump for both live wells and the bait well up front. I'll ask the dealer when I take it in to get fixed.

      I sure love this dog!!
    • monstermoose78
      Yep current areas are key
    • monstermoose78
      The area is so huge. I like devilfish, Tom, crescent, lots of trout lakes and splake are my favorite to eat. Brule lake has been good to me over the years. Triangle can be awesome and tofte is close and is a good trout lake. Fall lake with dam is hard to beat for eyes year round. Don’t for smallies for fun and to eat.

      Kandiyohi  count sheriff department caught a 74 Larson speed boat.  But seriously, a guy had the transom brake off and it sank sounds like someone in a pontoon rescued them.

      Lakes across the state are going to have much more noticeable traffic this summer. No twins games, kids sports, restaurants, festivals, parades, meat raffles, garage sales, concerts, movies, etc, etc, etc, etc to go to. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Doesn’t anyone at the resort have any advice?
    • Borch
      Seems too small to be used for a recirculation line to another livewell.  Not 100 % sure what it would be used for though.  My first thought is a pressure vacuum line as I believe lund is still using a valve system for switching live wells fill from the pump.

      I tried to search and found a few old posts regarding Superior National Forest (quoted at the end of my post). I usually go grouse hunting in the Superior National Forest every fall, but I've never been up there fishing. I'm planning to head up there in ~1 month with a couple of my friends and their families and we will be bringing canoes. We're hoping to catch some walleye ideally. When I've been up in the fall hunting we usually try to camp by one the many lakes (Wilson, Whitefish, Silver Island, Bone...). The posts at the end are over a decade old already. I'm sure that some of it hasn't changed, but I was wondering if anyone has any good tips for fishing in the SNF? I perused DNR LakeFinder for the lakes in the area we usually go to that have walleyes: Timber, Finger, Sister, Dam Five, Elbow, Frear, Ninemile, T Lake, Windy, Harriet, Wilson, Toohey, Four Mile, Whitefish, Silver Island. Anyone have any general or specific tips for this area? We'd be in canoes, so don't need a lake that has a launch, and maybe that adds benefit getting to a lake that potentially has less pressure.   ------------------------------------------------------------   "There are a number of areas you could get to easily with just about any vehicle. Lake Eighteen, Wilson, Silver Island, August... There are a couple that come to mind down some tougher roads, Seven Beavers and Harris. If you wanted to have a wilderness type experience without the permits and regs you could boat across Ojibway and take the roller portage into Triangle if you have a smaller boat. Birch Lake has a lot of the rustic campsites."   "Dumbbell is another option (I forgot to mention) and if you're interested in going after muskies would be a good option. Pretty cool campsite on a point."   "Wilson has some really nice walleyes, but because it's so clear, the best bite is after dark. Windy has a lot of eaters, plus plenty of northerns and the occasional whitefish. There are several sites scattered around the perimeter. An updated MacKenzie map should show the locations of most campsites on any lake you're looking to fish."   "Elbow, Timber, Frear - I would hit them for sure, close together and good walleye lakes. For bait I would use jig and minnows if your bringing minnows, and leeches on a snell, crawlers on the harness. I know lindy rigs and leeches work also, so bring them. Bone Lake - Great splake lake. Lots of good size fish. I love to fish splake, and I would bring in just these spoons. Kamloopers, in rainbow trout and perch colors, and Kastmasters in silver blue, and perch. These are what I only use for splake. They are the best period. Bring a few as there are good sized fish in there. Put them on a swivel and troll the shorelines and points for them, deadly approach. As for Cross River and Coffee Lake your typical walleye rigs will work as I mentioned above. I would bring some pike lures and try for some pike as well. Cross River has good size pike in there. I would also check with some bait shops or local people who have fished these lakes this year, just in case of a freeze out. We had alot of ice up this way. Lotta beaver ponds I trap froze to the bottom, and Cross Lake is shallow, and so is Coffee, but with the creeks and rivers running into them you should be OK. But I would check with the Beaver House or Bucks Hardware. Hate to hike in and the lake froze out."
